How it Works

Viasat works by placing a dedicated satellite dish on your home that sends a signal to our satellite. This signal is relayed back down to a ground station, and connects you quickly and efficiently to the internet.
Today’s satellite internet is much faster and more reliable than when the technology first emerged, and many subscribers are pleasantly surprised about how fast rural internet can be.

Here’s what some of our rural internet customers have to say about their Viasat experience:

“Most people were using (another satellite internet provider) until Exede launched a new satellite that serves this area. It has changed everything.” – Anne Kessler, Northern California

“You guys are cheaper and much quicker [than our old cable-internet bundle]; to me, there’s no comparison.” – Lorraine Harris, Oregon Coast

“I couldn’t have [gotten my degree] because I’m six miles out in the boonies here. … That’s why I give Exede high marks; getting my school work in is very important. I got my Associate and my Bachelors with WildBlue (the service that preceded Viasat), and then went to Exede; that’s how I’m doing my Masters.” – Jason Coutts, Oregon

“My husband works in the Bay Area during the week and commutes home on weekends, so we Skype a lot. We have iPads and iPhones. Each [of our five boys] has a tablet. We do lots of email and homework online. The speed is phenomenal. All of us can be online at the same time, and we don’t have any issues with the service slowing down at all.” – Shea Marshall, California
