AT&T will resell service from satellite provider

AT&T Mobility has struck a deal with the startup TerreStar Networks, which plans to launch a satellite July 1. TerreStar is developing handsets that use both cellular and satellite technologies. AT&T is set to resell satellite services and phones from TerreStar. The satellite will provide service across the United States and Canada (including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands), and will use licensed 2 GHz spectrum for voice service. Data speeds, however, will be fairly slow compared to many carriers' high-speed mobile broadband networks, clocking in at 64 Kbps. Initially, AT&T will resell the service to local, state and federal governments. Article
