Project Decibel Exposed: Starry to Test Wireless Internet Access

With Aereo, Chet Kanojia took on the broadcast industry — and lost spectacularly. Now, he is getting ready to go up against an equally formidable foe: Kanojia is about to unveil a new startup that could provide wireless internet access in major metropolitan areas across the U.S., and in turn directly compete with big incumbents like Comcast and Time Warner Cable.Kanojia has been working since the end of 2014 on this new project, and thus far succeeded in keeping a cloud of secrecy around his efforts. His new company, which has hired at least 20 former Aereo employees, is currently in stealth mode, using the name “Project Decibel” to keep outsiders guessing. The company’s website simply states that it is “creating powerful and unique technology products and services that have meaningful impact on consumers.”Next week, Project Decibel has invited select journalists to an event in New York to unveil what it has been up to — but there’s enough evidence out there already to piece together what’s to be unveiled.
