Summary

Based on a needs assessment of intra-state and inter-state interconnection telecommunication services, the Virginia Public Telecommunications Council (VPTC) envisions a public service satellite system consisting of: (1) primarily broadband transceiver capacities to areas having state supported institutions of higher education, perhaps with common carrier supplied narrow-band extensions to various state agencies; and (2) narrow-band transceiver capacities located in areas lacking institutions of higher education but having a School Division Headquarters, with narrow-band extensions (common carrier supplied) to various state agencies. This system would interconnect directly with compatible transceivers within satellite range. Traffic protocols would be centrally managed from Richmond and coordinated with the national satellite operating authority. (DAG)
