U.S. regulators have reversed themselves and reinstated a U.S. license for EchoStar Communications Corp. to launch a satellite with high-speed Internet capabilities.

The Federal Communications Commission in June revoked EchoStar's license for using the high-speed Ka-band frequency because it said the satellite TV company missed construction milestones. EchoStar immediately appealed and submitted a photograph of a satellite under construction with the high-speed capability.

The FCC said Monday that EchoStar should have supplied more thorough documentation in the first place.
