Re: SkyCache/Cidera replacement?
> Does anyone know of one? No. > Hell, has anyone even considered starting one? No, and I doubt anybody seriously has. As a former employee, I can vouch that the transponder costs were prohibitive to any start-up. It's possible that a large established provider might be able to absorb the lease, I doubt it. If it was going to happen, it would've happened when Cidera was available for pennies on the dollar (my assumption, not a known fact). As it stands, the uplink dishes are still sitting unused behind Bergmann's cleaners in Laurel, MD. Damn shame. -J.
