Learn About Exede Internet

Exede Internet is now Viasat. The same Exede satellite internet service current customers have come to know and love now falls under the Viasat name, and is only getting better. With continued investment in technology innovations, Viasat is aiming to consistently improve the speed and quality of internet service.

Viasat Internet service (formerly Exede) is available for both business and residential customers. As Viasat, Exede satellite internet covers eight out of ten locations in the United States, bringing high-speed internet to rural and hard-to-reach areas underserved by other providers. From farms and ranches to remote vacation homes and rural businesses of all types, the continually improving Viasat broadband internet service will live up to your expectations with Exede.

What is Exede?

Launched in 2012, Exede internet currently serves more than 600,000 customers throughout the United States. Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) is powered by Viasat's satellite network, including the ViaSat-1 satellite, which, at the time of its launch, held the Guinness record for the world's highest capacity communications satellite.

As a satellite internet provider, Viasat (formerly Exede) reaches areas that other internet service providers ignore, offering high speeds previously unavailable via satellite internet. Depending upon your area, plans are available providing download speeds as high as 100 Mbps. Just like Exede offered flexible plans, Viasat offers unlimited data plans in select areas or Liberty Plans, which don't charge you for going over your monthly data allowance.

Beginning in December of 2017, the Exede brand name was retired along with the Wildblue brand, bringing all three satellite internet services under the Viasat umbrella.

What internet speeds are available through Viasat?

Viasat Internet has four plan choices for residential customers and 35 Mbps metered broadband services available for business customers. The download speeds available for residential customers range from the 12 Mbps Unlimited Bronze 12 plan to the 100 Mbps Unlimited Platinum 100 plan available in some areas, with the Unlimited Silver 25 plan and its 25 Mbps download speeds recommended for most households.

What does “unlimited data” from Viasat mean?

Viasat’s unlimited data service plans do not have a monthly data allowance, and the amount of data you use will not affect your service speeds unless the network is congested. Each plan has a data usage threshold—once you exceed this threshold, Viasat may prioritize your data behind other customers during network congestion, resulting in slower speeds.
