According to a report by online news agency AE Brasil, StarOne, a subsidiary of long distance operator Embratel, is set to launch an internet service combining radio and satellite technologies in 2006. The launch is expected to reduce the cost of providing internet services by a third when compared to using satellite communications only. StarOne, which completed a pilot test in July this year, said it will target corporate customers with the new service.
