A brief history of Exede internet
The Exede internet name launched in 2012 to bring satellite internet to hard-to-reach areas not served by other internet service providers. Powered by Viasat’s network, Exede ran on the ViaSat-1 satellite, which at the time of its launch held the Guinness record for the world’s highest capacity communications satellite.
Beginning in December 2017, the Exede brand name was retired along with the WildBlue brand, bringing all three satellite internet services under the Viasat umbrella.
Formerly known as Exede, Viasat satellite internet runs on a more advanced network that includes the ViaSat-2 satellite and serves more than 600,000 American and international customers.
With unlimited data plans and faster download speeds, Viasat has pushed the boundaries of Exede to bring improved satellite internet service to families and businesses in rural areas.
What is Viasat?
Based in Carlsbad, California, Viasat is a global communications company offering satellite internet in the lower 48 United States and parts of Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean. Viasat’s advanced satellites target geographical areas more precisely than ever before, bringing high-speed internet access to even more rural areas underserved by internet service providers.
Are Viasat and Exede the same company?
Yes. Viasat offered service under the brand name Exede starting in 2012. When Viasat folded Exede as a brand name in 2017, it continued offering the same plans and service under its own name.
I’ve been very happy with Viasat Internet service and the contact people when I need to speak to someone are super friendly and know what they are talking about! I’ve used their service now for over 2 years and had them twice before when they were Wild Blue and Exede but now Viasat…I’m a happy internet customer. Thank you Wild Blue, Exede, and Viasat for making living in the country a lot better!Cindy
I was with the big cable company for internet for decades and moved to the country where they don’t do service. We searched for a satellite service and we were SO lucky to find Exede (Viasat)! They have terrific satellite service, improving all the time, and their plans are increasing which works perfect for us.Nancy
I have been an Exede (Viasat) customer for 5.5 months with NO issues. We are happy with the service we have received and the performance of the internet & phone. It is not perfect but no system is. Even the service we had in town had issues. We actually had a lot more problems in town than we have had since moving to the country. Thank you, Exede!Jeannie
