WildBlue or Wild Goose Chase?

WSJ is running a story on WildBlue, a satellite broadband company that hopes to sell good-speed connections to consumers and businesses who are off the high-speed Internet grid. I wrote about the whole satellite trend last week. But this quote from Greg Caressi, a senior manager with the consulting firm Frost & Sullivan sums it up: satellite operators can’t seem to put together the economics to make the service comparable” with terrestrial options, and that will make it difficult to survive 10 years from now.
