Short Take: Hughes, CAIS to provide satellite Internet

Hughes Network Systems (HNS), a division of Hughes Electronics, and CAIS Internet have agreed on an alliance to offer satellite-based Internet access to businesses and consumers. CAIS, which offers Net access in pre-wired hotels and apartment buildings, will offer Hughes' corporate DirecWay and residential DirecPC satellite Internet services. Satellite-based Net access is growing in popularity in hard-to-reach areas, remote locations and rural geographies.
