WildBlue to Lease More Ka-band Capacity From EchoStar

WildBlue and EchoStar Satellite Services completed an agreement under which WildBlue will lease additional Ka-band capacity from EchoStar. This additional capacity comes from EchoStar's currently leased in-space satellites.

WildBlue anticipates additional capacity will become available in the second half of 2009, delivering the same speeds and quality of service enjoyed by current WildBlue customers.
