Possible Parties of Pilot Projects
(February 28, 1999)
For broadband Internet in wide rage, we will have Pacific/Asia, North/South America and Europe/Africa groups.

Because of the use of geostationary satellites, they are longitudinal regional groups which hub stations will be linked each other with broadband terrestrial cables.

Other groups for middle east and Indian regions will be added as interested parties will emerge.
