Learn about WildBlue internet
WildBlue is now Viasat internet service, with speeds up to 100 Mbps in select areas.
What is WildBlue?
Launched in 2004, WildBlue was a satellite internet provider that brought broadband speeds to remote areas in the United States. By 2009, WildBlue had grown to be one of the top 20 internet service providers in the United States, with more than 400,000 subscribers.
That same year, looking to add new satellite internet areas to its service, Viasat acquired WildBlue. The merger, combined with Viasat’s high-capacity satellite technology, made it possible for thousands more families to get high-speed satellite internet services in rural neighborhoods.
In 2017, Viasat retired the name Wildblue and stopped offering new WildBlue satellite internet service plans. However, to serve loyal customers who already had WildBlue, Viasat continues operating legacy plans—not to mention offers serious speed upgrades to customers who want more from their satellite internet.
Upgrade to Viasat speeds
For decades, Viasat and WildBlue have brought high-speed internet access to suburban and rural areas not served by traditional DSL and cable internet providers. And the progress continues! Viasat is still rapidly expanding across the continental US. Upgrade your legacy WildBlue service, or order new Viasat service, for these benefits:
Speeds as fast as 100 Mbps in select areas
Unlimited data with no overage fees
Integrated Wi-Fi for all your devices
Bundle with unlimited phone calls to US and Canada
Unlimited Data Plans: Depending on the specific unlimited data service plan available at your location, after you use the following amount of data, we may prioritize your data behind other customers during network congestion: Basic 12 (15 GB); Bronze 12 (35 GB, 40 GB or 80 GB, depending on your specific plan); Silver 12 (45 GB); Gold 12 (65 GB); Bronze 25 (35 GB); Silver 25 (60 GB, 100 GB or 120 GB, depending on your specific plan); Gold 30 (100 GB or 200 GB, depending on your specific plan); Gold 50 (100 GB or 200 GB, depending on your specific plan), and Platinum 100 (150 GB or 300 GB, depending on your specific plan). Streaming video quality is “up to,” will vary and is not guaranteed.
What is Viasat?
Viasat Internet is a satellite internet service provider based in Carlsbad, California. Viasat acquired WildBlue and integrated its technology and services in 2009.
Viasat’s home and business internet services are available in areas often underserved by traditional internet providers, bringing high-speed internet to rural areas and outer suburban locations.

Is WildBlue still available for purchase?
While WildBlue still exists as a legacy service for existing customers in some areas, new WildBlue services are not available for purchase. Instead, you can purchase packages with upgraded speeds and capabilities through Viasat.
