I'm sorry for the spelling mistakes.It should be "skyBlaster". There were some other mistakes. Accept my apology. Also I have to correct the issue of Microsoft commitment to purchase SkyBlaster units from Gilat. It was said that through MSN, microsoft is committed to purchase in the coming 4 years significant quantities of this product to be install in MSN customers. Estimations are that Gilat will sell 50,000 units in year 2000, aproximately half of it might be purchased by MSN. In the year 2001 Gilat is expecting to sell almost 250,000 units.
The investment of EchoStar in GTH reflects a $284M value of GTH.($50M for a 17.6% stake in GTH).
