Exede History: The bright future of satellite internet

Exede Satellite Internet is the culmination of more than a decade of planning and innovation. Here’s our story.

Part One: It all started in a spare bedroom.

Like a lot of companies that have changed the way the whole world works, ViaSat, the company behind Exede, was started on a shoestring. It all began with early brainstorming about an innovative satellite company … in a spare bedroom in 1986.

Led by Mark Dankberg and a group of ambitious engineers, ViaSat would grow to become a leading technology innovator for business, government and the U.S. military, focusing on communications via satellite. One of its largest customers was a Colorado company called WildBlue.

Part Two: WildBlue.

In 1999, a small group of communications experts based in Denver foresaw the need for satellite internet in the same way that companies had seen an opportunity for satellite TV back in the 1980s. They designed a satellite network created specifically for internet communications. For the first time the Ka-Band of the wireless spectrum was used. They named the company WildBlue.

WildBlue’s first satellite launched in 2004. The next year, the company began delivering internet services to people in the rural U.S. who had no access to faster forms of internet connectivity.

The original WildBlue service offered download speeds about 30x faster than dial-up service and was greeted with enthusiasm. It may be difficult to remember what the internet was like in 2005: There was no YouTube, no Twitter, no Netflix and no Hulu. Facebook was just a year old and was only used by a few college students. So WildBlue’s original download speeds — up to 1.5 Mbps — seemed lightning fast.

Over the next 5 years, WildBlue experienced record growth. It launched a second satellite and leased space on a third. But even that couldn’t keep up with the demand. In the most populous U.S. states, WildBlue’s service was “sold out” as its satellite beams quickly became full.

Over time, 1.5 Mbps didn’t seem all that fast anymore. WildBlue customers liked the company, its U.S.-based customer care department and its friendly service, but they wanted faster speeds similar to those offered by cable companies in the cities.

Part Three: ViaSat acquires WildBlue and sets out to launch the world’s most powerful communications satellite.

In January 2008, ViaSat announced it was building the world’s highest capacity communications satellite — one that would offer a whole new class of internet service with much faster speeds. It was a visionary project destined to revolutionize the satellite internet market.

ViaSat had almost everything it needed: world class technology, talented engineers and a revolutionary new satellite in the works. The only thing missing was the support structure needed for a residential internet service — capabilities that WildBlue already had. It was a natural fit. So in December 2009, ViaSat acquired WildBlue, its customers, satellites and operational expertise.

Part Four: Exede Internet Service.

In October 2011, ViaSat successfully launched ViaSat-1 into orbit 22,300 miles over the equator in what’s called a “geosynchronous orbit.” This type of orbit is in just the right place to cover the same part of the earth as it rotates. ViaSat also announced a new name for the service: Exede. With download speeds up to 12 Mbps, proprietary acceleration software and an entirely new technology on the ground, it was a different experience from any satellite internet service anywhere.

Today, ViaSat-2 is now operational, launched in 2016 with yet another giant leap in technology and service levels. At the same time, we’re continuously looking at ways to improve service and speeds for our current customers. We remain dedicated to providing the best satellite communications technology, solutions and services in the world.

Tomorrow, we are working on Viasat3 which will bring even greater speeds to our customers.

Installation

 



 
You’ve selected the perfect ViaSat Internet data plan for your home. Yet you may be curious on the installation process. Do you have to set up the equipment yourself? What equipment will you get?

When it comes to ViaSat satellite Internet, you don’t have to worry about getting the secure connection to ensure fast Internet speeds. Our standard service is free of charge as we send a certified technician to your home to do the equipment setup. There is absolutely no self-installation process involved.

Our technician will call to set up a date and time for the installation. We request that someone who is 18 years of age or older to be there during the process. We also ask that you receive permission from a property owner or management company if you rent a home or condo, or ask permission from the HOA regarding the rules for satellite Internet mounting. When our technician arrives, they will discuss the best place to put the mini dish, cables and modem for your home.

In addition, you may decide to set up a wireless network in your home for all of your devices. ViaSat offers combo modems that also have wireless router capabilities if the ViaSat WIFI service is available in your area. Our technician can only install equipment owned and purchased through ViaSat included with the free standard installation. Optionally our technician can sell you any piece of equipment that is not furnished by ViaSat. Our technician will discuss with you what your needs may be and can recommend the proper piece of equipment that will fit your needs.

Installation will typically take a few hours as our technician sets up the equipment and gives you a demonstration of our ViaSat services. On very rare occasions, you may need custom installation service for your equipment. Custom service rates will apply. The technician will discuss those rates before proceeding with the install process and will collect the rate charges before leaving. This may include but not be limited to a pole mount instead of the free roof mount, or a special eve mount.

Introducing Unlimited Plans

Introducing unlimited data plans

If you’ve hesitated to purchase satellite internet because of data caps, the wait is over.

It’s true – we now offer unlimited data plans. We think unlimited data plans are the future of satellite internet for everyone. We offer these plans to subscribers across the continental U.S.

What can you do with an unlimited data plan?

Anything you routinely use the internet for – banking, shopping, homework, streaming music and video, downloading files, social media, checking news, sports, and weather. Do everything you love, and more of it.

Who is it for?

Viasat Internet is a great choice for people who don’t have cable internet where they live. It will be an upgrade for your family if you’ve been stuck with slow DSL or a local wireless service.

What are the different types of unlimited data plans?

In some areas, we’re offering three types of unlimited data plans. The main differences between these plans are speed and video streaming quality. Here are the details:

Bronze 12

  • Download speeds up to 12 Mbps / Upload speeds up to 3 Mbps
  • Video streaming at small screen quality, typically 360p

GOOD FOR: Smaller households that don’t use many connected devices; people who mostly tend to stream videos on their phone or tablet. Think more YouTube than Netflix.

NOT IDEAL FOR: Households that stream video on large-screen TVs; people who stream most of their shows or cord cutters who value high-definition quality; households with more than a few connected devices running at the same time.

On the Unlimited Bronze 12 service plan, after 40 GB of data usage, we may prioritize your data behind other customers during network congestion.

Silver 25

  • Download speeds up to 25 Mbps / Upload speeds up to 3 Mbps
  • Video streaming at DVD-quality definition, typically 480p

GOOD FOR: Families with many connected devices; people who don’t mind watching shows in DVD quality.

NOT IDEAL FOR: Film buffs who prefer their shows in HD quality.

On the Unlimited Silver 25 service plan, after 60 GB of data usage, we may prioritize your data behind other customers during network congestion.

Gold 30

  • Download speeds up to 30 Mbps / Upload speeds up to 3 Mbps
  • Video streaming at high definition, typically 720p

GOOD FOR: Everyone! Families with many connected devices; people who want the best quality regardless of the device they use; people who watch video on big-screen TVs.

NOT IDEAL FOR: People who want to watch shows in 4K definition.

On the Unlimited Gold 30 service plan, after 100 GB of data usage, we may prioritize your data behind other customers during network congestion.

Gold 50

  • Download speeds up to 50 Mbps / Upload speeds up to 3 Mbps
  • Video streaming at high definition, typically for 720p

GOOD FOR: Everyone! Families with many connected devices; people who want the best quality regardless of the device they use; people who watch video on big-screen TVs.

NOT IDEAL FOR: People who want to watch shows in 4K definition.

On the Unlimited Gold 50 service plan, after 100 GB of data usage, we may prioritize your data behind other customers during network congestion.

Which plan should I choose?

We recommend picking the service plan that best fits your video viewing habits, desired speed and budget. You can always upgrade using your account portal, and your upgraded service will be available within a matter of minutes.

Frequently asked questions

Is there a Free Zone?

No. There’s no need for a Free Zone with unlimited data plans. The Free Zone was created to allow unmetered internet use during certain hours so none of your internet activities counted toward your monthly data allowance. With our new unlimited data plans, you don’t have to wait until 3 a.m. to download files.

When will these plans be available in my area?

Unlimited data plans are available in many areas. Just call to see what service plans are available in your area. Current customers can upgrade their service plans (where available), just call us and we can help with your upgrade.

How much data usage is included in my unlimited data plan?

On an unlimited data plan, there are no limits to how much data you can use during your monthly billing cycle. On the Unlimited Bronze, Silver, and Gold service plans, after 40, 60, or 100 GB of data usage, respectively, we may prioritize your data behind other customers during network congestion.

Does my data usage ever affect the speed of my internet service, especially if I use a lot of data?

When the network is not busy, nothing will happen to your service speeds. When the network is busy, and you have used more data than the amount stated for your service plan in the paragraph directly above, Viasat may prioritize your data behind other customers, which will result in slower speeds. Web pages and videos may respond and load more slowly than during periods of non-congestion.

Is this the same as the Freedom plans offered previously?

No, if you used more than 150 GB of data on a Freedom plan, your speeds were slowed (up to 1-5 Mbps) all day, every day until the end of your monthly billing period. On the Unlimited Bronze, Silver, and Gold service plans, even after you use 40, 60, or 100 GB of data usage, respectively, your speeds will remain normal except when the network is congested. Only when you have reached your service plan’s threshold and the network is busy, then we may prioritize your data behind other customers, resulting in slower speeds. As soon as network congestion clears, you’re back to full speed.
