Broadband internet provider WildBlue Communications is partnering with Xplornet - the national reseller for Telesat Canada's Ka-band service, to offer the company's high-speed, two-way satellite-dellivered products and services to businesses across Canada. Xplornet, a brand of Barrett Xplore Inc., is Canada's largest wireless broadband service provider.

Under the agreement, WildBlue Enterprise Solutions' value-added resellers (VAR) will operate on a wholesale basis as Xplornet VARs to offer Canadian business customers a similar Ka-band service to utilize on Telesat's AnikF2 satellite with WildBlue.

In a statement that may sound familiar to some, Xplornet delivers fast, affordable, high-speed internet access to communities across Canada that are unserved by other broadband providers or underserved by dial-up, WildBlue said.
