Freedom from Comcast? Aereo founder takes on ISPs with millimeter wave wireless internet

Starry aims to deliver broadband-level wireless internet to your home with tech used by the military. Aereo dared to take on the broadcast industry by streaming over-the-air TV channels on the internet — that is, until the Supreme Court ruled that its technology was illegal. Now that company’s founder, Chet Kanojia, is taking on yet another established industry: Internet service providers. Today at a New York City launch event he unveiled Starry, the first consumer company to use millimeter wave technology to deliver wireless internet access. Up until now, that’s been a technology mainly used by the military for radar and other purposes.
