Dewey Bain, president of PlanetLink Communications Inc.  “Our strategy is to move toward more direct, commission-based sales, focus on new revenue streams and create brand recognition for PlanetLink.”

PlanetLink, headquartered in Atlanta, Ga., has three primary business segments based on satellite-enabled technology. Providing the consumer both products and services, PlanetLink businesses include: DISH Network (satellite television), StarBand (High-Speed Internet Access) and Global Positioning System (GPS) personal tracking devices.  PlanetLink’s goal is to become a single-source dealer / distributor of technologically advanced, satellite-based products and services.  With a strong and growing product offering and brand name, PlanetLink is building this unique category into a class all its own.
