The service will be sold through Dish’s normal distribution channels including retailers, according to Brian McIntyre, broadband VP, who previewed the service to the media at company offices, here.

Well, since Dish/Echostar owns Hughesnet now, it would probably be some form of that (probably renamed)????????

I checked with Dish. It is bundling dishtv, excede, and some cell phone providers into one monthly bill. The price is the same, but you can now pay three bills with one postage stamp.

According to the article, they will use EXEDE for 5Mb service and Hughes for 10 MB service. They will offer a better deal than 7.9 GB at $49.95.

Translation - Where ES17 does not reach, then Exede 5 will be used.

YMMV - It will depend upon where one is located, and what options/choices are available.
