Starry sports several compelling elements to its story: It’s a startup founded by Chet Kanojia, the entrepreneur who also founded Aereo, which tried to disrupt the TV/video industry but ended up in bankruptcy. It also designed and built the Starry Station, a high-end Wi-Fi hub sporting a touchscreen. And its wireless system can run in inepxective spectrum bands including the 37-40 GHz range, and will relay internet signals to subscribers’ externally mounted reception antennas using non-line-of-sight wireless technology – similar to the fixed wireless setup Verizon and others are designing around 5G technology.
