High-speed Internet access on wheels
GattoMedia is launching its GattoBroadband "High-Speed Internet on Wheels" service in New York next week. According to GattoMedia, satellite vehicles will be "on-call, ready to be dispatched to breaking news stories, live events, news conferences, remote locations and areas that are under-served by current Internet access methods." Tony Gatto, president of GattoMedia, explains why the service would have value for news teams - or just about any other organization working off-site for a limited period of time:
"GattoBroadband provides a truly self-contained mobile newsroom and Wi-Fi hotspot option for breaking news stories and remote events. We hope to provide a solution for organizations that need immediate broadband Internet access, but may not have the means to do so through traditional methods."
As a demo of what's possible with the new service, the company is arranging free Wi-Fi service for customers of the New York Waterway's ferries to Manhattan at the Port Imperial Terminal in Weehawken next Tuesday.
