Dish Network (DISH) is planning to launch a U.S. satellite broadband service on Monday with relatively aggressive pricing. The service, which will be available nationwide but aimed at rural areas with poor broadband availability, will cost TV subscribers between $40-$70/month and deliver speeds of 5-10 Mbps, but will come with data caps. Dish currently offers costlier services in partnership with ViaSat (VSAT). Rival DirecTV (DTV) says it plans to offer nationwide broadband in Q1.
