Viasat2 launch I have checked a few web sites nothing confirmed
Congrats to Viasat for a successful launch. Looking forward to the deployment and certification of all systems. Anyone know if with the new bird we would need a new dish and modem along with a repoint or is this system also going to be on the KA band and we would just need to repoint the dish?
Hi Hfcomms, Yes, service from ViaSat-2 will require newequipment. However, depending upon your location, the plan you wantand some other factors, it may not be necessary for you to switch to the newsatellite. In fact, once ViaSat-2 service begins we expect service levels onViaSat-1 to improve.
We posted this on a few of our social media channels as well but didn't see it linked on here (first day back after a long weekend sorry if double-posting) http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-40123180
