EchoStar Corp. is taking full ownership of the Hughes Network Services satellite consumer broadband business three years after a confusing trade with sister company Dish Network that divided the business between the two. In a cash-free transaction, EchoStar is trading its satellite television set-top box business in return for the portion of the consumer broadband business it had ceded to Dish. The deal comes just as EchoStar is scheduled to place into service the EchoStar 1/Jupiter-2 satellite, which will more than double the throughput capacity of the HughesNet consumer broadband service.
