Yes, assuming you mean sharing the same service - you can always have two independent installations at twice the price - Viasat won't complain about that ;)

The devil is in the details, however, and any specific/best recommendation would would require some prerequisite knowledge about your site.

For example and if both building share the same electrical service, power line network extenders might suffice. Other possibilities would include WiFi extenders/repeaters. There are any number of variables that determine the best and in many cases the only workable option(s) including wired ethernet options. Electric supply, distance, building construction materials, etc. all may come into play.

Hi Butch,  If you want service in both buildings, it will require a new install., unless you have a router which will allow you to access the modem from the second building.
