Any updates on services being expanded to Central America? We're based in Costa Rica, wanting to move on this asap. Thank you.

I don't believe we announced anything yet but ViaSat 2's footprint does cover Mexico, Central America and flightpaths to Europe. We won't have any serviceability until early 2018 at which point we may discuss future expansion plans.

A bit of an update..  We are working to expand in Brazil, and have community wifi in several areas in Mexico.  Haven't heard anything about Costa Rica however.

This hurts really bad as Costa Rica currently has no reliable connection in there rural areas. It seems the satellite is available but dealers for Costa Rica is non-existant

Matt, if you happen to hear about a solution for Costa Rics, or know of anyway I can get my hands on a setup package, please, please, please, let me know. Thank you. Its frustrating to know the technology is right there, but out of my reach due to marketing techniques.
