What is Exede Satellite Internet?
Exede Satellite Internet is high-speed internet beamed directly to your home from our satellites in space. This means you can get a fast internet connection where you live – almost anywhere in the United States.
- In all 50 states, covering 98 percent of the U.S. population
- In areas where other internet companies offer slower service – or no service at all
- People who live on the edge of urban areas, where other internet options may be too slow
- People who have trouble getting fast internet because they live in rural or remote areas
- People who want internet and phone service bundled together in one affordable package
Exede is not a good option for “cord cutters” who want to get all their television and movie via online streaming. Because Exede has a data allowance, it is not a good solution for families who use very large amounts of data.
- It’s quick. Our 12 Mbps download speeds* are faster than typical DSL or 4G/LTE mobile service. In select areas, you can get up to 25 Mbps speeds – the fastest home satellite internet service ever!
*available in many during off-peak hours
- It’s affordable. Your monthly internet service charge won’t go up for at least 3 years – guaranteed. Plus, there are never any automatic overage fees on our residential service.
- It’s simple. Installation typically takes just 2-3 hours. Once you’re connected, managing your account is easy with our online portal.
- Let’s say you’re on your laptop or mobile device and you click on your favorite website. Your request goes to your Exede modem, then through a short cable to the dish outside your home.
- Your dish beams your request up to our satellite.
- Our satellite sends your request down to a gateway station connected to our ground network.
- The station relays your request to your favorite website.
- The website delivers the information your requested back to the station, which sends it up to our satellite to be beamed directly to you.
What equipment do I need?
Exede Satellite Dish
The Exede Internet dish is about the same size as a satellite TV dish. An Exede technician will help you choose the best location for the dish, such as on the roof or side of your home. (You need an official Exede dish to use Exede Satellite Internet – you cannot use a satellite TV dish.)
Exede WiFi Modem
Exede modems are about the size of a large book. Our new Exede WiFi Modem includes a built-in wireless router and an adapter for our Exede Voice service.
