Responding directly to Americans’ interests and demands for more data, more streaming video and faster download speeds at home, today the availability of the fastest satellite-based home internet service across the nation—with speeds up to 100 Mbps is here. On top of that, the new Viasat service will offer unlimited data plans, giving customers more freedom and access to more online services—without the need to pay overage charges or anything extra for more data. The new service is powered by the ViaSat-2 satellite system, which includes the most advanced, highest-capacity communications satellite in orbit today, coupled with new innovations in satellite ground infrastructure.

"We've upped the game for satellite internet by delivering a new service that gives consumers what they want: more data, faster speeds and better entertainment experiences across all device types," said Mark Dankberg, Viasat's chairman and CEO. "Today's service launch is an important step forward in Viasat's mission to deliver faster internet anywhere. The innovations we're making across our satellite system allow us to do extraordinary things, from moving the satellite industry up-market by delivering premium services, speeds and plans that give consumers new choices in their internet service provider, to helping bridge the digital divide in the U.S. today."
Higher speeds, for all
Viasat is the first satellite internet service provider in the U.S. or globally to offer plans with 100 Mbps download speeds to consumers' homes. The Company's new service is faster than any other satellite internet service today and is as much as 10 times faster than typical DSL. Additionally, most of Viasat's home internet plans meet or surpass the Federal Communications Commission's broadband definition of 25 Mbps download speeds, with plans offered at 12 Mbps, 25 Mbps, 30 Mbps, 50 Mbps and 100 Mbps speeds nationwide.
More data, no overage charges
Viasat is offering consumers the ability to enjoy more data and more entertainment at home—without overage charges. To offer this service, Viasat is optimizing video streaming, maximizing ground network efficiencies and flexing its system's data consumption capabilities to offer more data and video viewing time at small screen, DVD or better quality. That means if the monthly data plan is exceeded, service will continue based on availability, except during peak periods where congestion may limit service.
Premium features, premium services
The new internet service comes power-packed with new capabilities:
Today, Viasat is bringing super-fast internet to consumers' homes nationwide. Subsequently, the Company will enable ViaSat-2 services for business and government as well as in-flight internet connectivity on both commercial and business aircraft. In each case, Viasat's internet service will offer more satellite capacity and more premium features—meaning users will enjoy a better service experience, with amplified access, across a much larger coverage area.
In addition to the new service running on the ViaSat-2 satellite system, Viasat is already building its next-generation high-capacity satellite system--ViaSat-3—which is expected to enable high-quality, high-speed internet access for billions of people and emerging markets worldwide. The ViaSat-3 system will offer global coverage with only three satellites, each designed to support over 1-Terabit per second (Tbps) of network capacity, further expanding the reach of 100+ Mbps broadband access. The first ViaSat-3 class satellite is expected to go into service in 2020 for the Americas, with the second satellite for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) expected to launch approximately 6-months later. A third ViaSat-3 class satellite is planned for the Asia Pacific (APAC) region.
