Company Overview

Starry is a technology company focused on re-imagining and revolutionizing how consumers access and connect to the internet. Starry has developed proprietary fixed '5G' wireless technology that utilizes millimeter waves to connect consumers to high speed, gigabit-capable wireless broadband.  Starry’s ability to provide last-mile connectivity wirelessly and without the need for direct line-of-sight, offers a major advantage over traditional fixed-wireline providers, enabling Starry to offer broadband access at a fraction of the cost.  Starry is a better, more affordable way of connecting to the internet. Based in Boston and New York City, Starry is backed by world-class investors, including FirstMark Capital, KKR, IAC, Tiger Global, Quantum Strategic Partners, HLVP and others, and is led by Chet Kanojia and other former executives of Aereo, the groundbreaking online television platform.

 

Starry Internet is currently in a closed beta in the Boston-area with plans to expand the beta later this year to additional cities.

 

We love coming up with huge ideas and figuring out ways to bring them to life. Our team spans RF engineering, hardware architecture, firmware, UX, UI, software, industrial design, marketing, branding, and communications. And one thing we all share is an intense desire to make something beautiful. Something that makes a real dent.

  • Hacking drones
  • Weighing the pros /cons of fad dieting
  • Boating to work
  • Urban gardening
  • Low-stakes gambling in March
  • Yoga and thoughtful karmic reactions
