Subj - is there such a thing, other than semi-legal hookups via Arizona accounts?

After all this noise about expanding to Latin America with new Viasat-2, now that Viasat-2 is up and running - where are the Mexican plans and websites?

Exede Mexico - the official one

The launch of the ViaSat-2 satellite system transitions Viasat from a domestic to regional internet service provider (ISP).

As of right now, no, there is no legal service outside of the United States.  The plan is to expand south to Central America, and the norther parts of South America, but no timeframe that I'm aware of.

RE: "no legal service outside"

WTF?

For example, by adjusting its Viasat-1 coverage in the southwestern U.S., the company was able to expand into "hundreds of communities in Northern Mexico, delivering satellite-enabled Wi-Fi service," Dankberg said.

Interesting...Ranging is an indirect means of relative location, for a given "clear day sky."  Modems have always been provisioned for a given beam.  Appears to be "over-kill," and not to Viasat's financial interest.  Intel would approve: Big Brother is watching....

the modem key is what sets the beam ID.
