Exede Viasat Coverage

  • Updated 2 years ago
With the new Viasat-2 launch the coverage will be amazing even reaching the Caribbean and part of Europe. My question is if I were to move to let's say Haiti and want to become a dealer through Exede is that possible. How will Exede grow with this new sattilite?

Our plan with ViaSat 2 is to support our current footprint, and potentially expand into other areas as well. Expansion into other countries is certainly on our agenda in the coming years I believe the target is 2019/2020. Our newsroom on viasat.com usually has some of these posts in the form of press releases. This is sort of a general idea of what we're looking at https://www.viasat.com/products/high-capacity-satellites

Well I would definitely love to be one of the first to jump on board as a dealer of the service.

I'd certainly advise checking in during the months following the launch.

I'm hoping that those future expansion plans won't bring "us" right back to where we are right now -slow speeds and all. With Exede's track record, I think that's a real concern. Just sayin.....

I can understand the concern, but plans and testing are already underway to the successor for ViaSat 2. While ViaSat 3 does have some global focus, one of the satellites are going to be covering North America and that's just within 2-3 years after ViaSat 2 with the current plans. We sort of have an announcement video here: https://www.viasat.com/news/going-global
