If so, it would be reselling satellite broadband from Hughes Communications. This makes sense in that Wal-Mart would expand broadband in a big way to the 10% of the US population without broadband: the currently underserved rural users who can’t get cable or DSL. Wal-Mart could sell the equipment in-store, and doing so would also stimulate sales of Internet equipment currently being sold. The catch is service, something for which Wal-Mart has never been known, but Wal-Mart appears to have plans along those lines too.
