When will Viasat/Excede offer internet service to private homes in southern Mexico? Viasat 2 was supposed to provide this service, but I cannot find any ability to get this service.

Viasat 2 is not online yet, that won't happen until early next year but, that's in just a couple of months. Keep watching for it.

Thank you for your quick reply. How do I best stay informed? Should I monitor the Excede web site (which doesn’t seem to have a ‘news’ link, or is there another news outlet Viasat uses for this type of info/announcement?

Bhofman,

We've heard rumors of expanding to Mexico, but there hasn't been an official announcement yet.  As Bev said, it won't happen until Viasat 2 comes online!

Thank you both for the information.  There is a huge market for Excede once Viasat 2 comes on line.  I will keep checking at sites Bev provided.

Hi Steveio,

We haven't rolled out to Mexico just yet. Please keep an eye on this forum and viasat.com for an announcement

That appears to only be for the U.S.. Can I use a U.S. dealer to get a system for Baja? Should I just use my U.S. address?

We should have info about VS-2 service throughout Mexico very soon. We've been providing a lot of rural towns with a WiFi hotspot option (you go to a store and buy by the gig or for a set amount of time) in northern Mexico off our ViaSat-1 satellite, which has proven very popular in areas where service is non-existent (or close to it). We'll be expanding that with VS-2 service but I haven't heard yet about more typical residential service. Will update as soon as we know more!
