It's been a long time in the making, but WildBlue Communications is finally expanding operations. With the company's new WildBlue-1 satellite going hot this week, the broadband internet by satellite company will more than triple its customer capacity, making services available to at least 750,000 consumers.

Currently, WildBlue has about 130,000 customers nationwide, but with the added capacity, the company's internet service will be available to all areas of the contiguous United States by the second quarter of this year. The company will also continue to utilize its capacity on Anik F2 in conjunction with the new WildBlue-1.

In celebration of the service expansion, WildBlue said new customers will receive one month of any service package the company offers for free in March and April.
