    • INTERVIEW-AOL sees high-speed boost with
      By Nicole Volpe

      NEW YORK, June 21 (Reuters) -
      America Online Inc.'s (NYSE:AOL - news) $1.5 billion
      investment in satellite TV provider Hughes Electronics Corp.
      (NYSE:GMH - news) will give the Internet media giant
      national reach to provide satellite-based Internet access,
      AOL Chief Executive Steve Case said on

      ``What this alliance does is gives us a national
      footprint for high-speed Internet access,'' Case told
      Reuters in a telephone interview. He said the alliance
      represents the largest cash investment ever made by

      Case said the partnership would allow AOL to offer
      high-speed Internet access via Hughes' DirecTV satellite
      service to the one-third of U.S. households that will not
      be wired for other high-speed options by

      Most of these households are in rural

      High-speed access over cable and telephone lines is
      initially being rolled out in affluent urban areas, making
      satellite access a faster way to penetrate under-served

      ``Even if we had deals with all of the cable providers
      and telephone companies -- and we don't -- we would
      not have this national reach,'' he said.

      said the alliance is part of an overall plan to
      diversify AOL's delivery methods, to include service over
      cable and phone lines and increase subscribers'

      ``We're interested in this idea of 'AOL Everywhere,'
      extending services across all broadband technologies,'' he

      Case described ``a highly-connected society'' in which
      AOL services could be delivered through televisions,
      household appliances and hand-held devices as well as on

      The alliance between AOL and Hughes builds on the
      companies' earlier agreement to develop a ``combination''
      set-top receiver to make DirecTV/AOL TV available to
      consumers next year.

      ``If you are watching the Super
      Bowl, you can then access a sports site, or pull up
      your buddy list to start a chat about the game or
      access your e-mail during a commercial,'' he

      The combination of television and Internet access
      also provides electronic commerce opportunities. For
      example, a subscriber watching a music video on television
      could connect to a Web site and buy the CD containing
      the song from the video.

      AOL has led a group
      of Internet companies that are concerned about being
      locked out of such e-commerce opportunities that become
      available as Internet access is offered over cable lines.
      AOL and the others argue that consumers accessing the
      Internet via cable should be able to choose their Internet
      service provider, and not be forced to take the service
      offered by their cable system operators.

      In a
      conference call with reporters, Case said AOL's alliance
      with Hughes would not undercut AOL's argument to
      regulators that cable companies are shutting out Internet

      While the battle for access to cable line customers
      pits AOL against cable companies, Case said he did not
      view AOL as being in a race with cable or telephone
      companies to provide faster connections.

      ``We don't
      see ourselves as up against other providers because
      we are looking to work with them,'' he said. ``We
      want to offer a tapestry of platforms.''
