About Exede Internet

Since Viasat satellite internet was founded by Mark Dankberg, Steve Hart and Mark Miller in 1986, the company has emerged as a leading provider of broadband services and satellite technology. All three of the Viasat founders continue to work in key roles at the company with Dankberg serving as chairman and CEO. Initially, Viasat provided consulting services for defense contractors who needed to utilize satellite communications.

Viasat went on to win a contract with WildBlue to develop the satellite internet service’s ground network. In 2008, Viasat announced plans to launch its own high-capacity satellite, and ViaSat-1 launched over North America in 2011. The new satellite, which was the world’s largest at the time, immediately increased satellite speed and coverage areas.

Viasat acquired WildBlue in 2012 and changed the name to Exede. The acquisition gave Viasat a readymade customer base for Exede that would benefit from Viasat’s satellite and engineering expertise. Viasat offered four services under the Exede brand: Exede Internet, Exede Business, Exede Voice and Exede Enterprise Satellite Service. Viasat/Exede began providing in-flight Wi-Fi to airlines using satellite internet service in 2012. Today, this in-flight service is used by major airlines to connect airline passengers to broadband internet and stream Netflix programming for passengers.

In 2016, Viasat launched ViaSat-2, the world’s highest capacity communications satellite. ViaSat-2 has improved service in North America, as well as parts of South America, the Caribbean, and the Atlantic Ocean. Exede has played an important part in shaping the global leader that today markets services as Viasat. During the Exede era, Viasat began offering customers a satellite internet connection from any geographic location. Today the focus is on offering unlimited data options to high-speed satellite internet customers, who are also enjoying higher download and upload speeds.

Viasat has been honored with an array of awards recognizing excellence in innovation, technology, satellite development and business strategy, but innovation continues. Viasat will soon launch three ViaSat-3 satellites. Each ViaSat-3 satellite is designed to cover a third of the planet utilizing Ka-band spot beams to provide broadband connectivity. ViaSat-3 satellites will be able to redirect capacity so that beams are not stranded over areas with no demand for satellite internet service.
