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 customers in the United States and even more internationally. 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.
