*First price is for Chaincast like Technology.  Second price is for Unicast Technology.  Chaincast Technology uses the Station's Listener PC & Bandwidth to forward the broadcast to other listeners as a proxy server. Many consider the use of this technology fundamentally wrong although its use is not currently illegal or prohibited in the United States of America.

Abacast website data as of 12/26/2006

Unlimited monthly bandwidth with no simultaneous listener caps are the hallmark feature from BRM.

The Dual-Band Option is also a very popular option many  stations use to gain the biggest audience and best quality output available.

Unicast Safe

Over 95% of our monthly listeners (over 1,300,000 monthly) use Windows Media on a Unicast streaming basis.

We consider our streaming technology the most user friendly and most widely accepted by the public world-wide.
