EchoStar said Tuesday (Jan. 19) it is donating satellite
services to Haiti
FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski said over the weekend that a
number of communications companies were volunteering their expertise and
services to the earthquake-ravaged country.
EchoStar will provide backhaul capacity or emergency
channels, a move it signaled to the FCC Jan. 14, according to the company.
Relief agencies seeking those services should call
EchoStar's traffic desk (888-778-3728).
