In the past, satellite internet service has been a very slow source of internet, and so it has been very unpopular. In fact, it was considered a ‘last resort’ to use internet. But this may change with Exede, a satellite broadband service by ViaSat. Exede is offering much higher upload and download rates and a very competitive internet speed, which puts it at par with other services which make use of fiber optic. Although for now, the service is limited to certain regions of US, it may be available in more regions in the coming days.


Exede was launched by ViaSat in October, 2011. This is the first satellite service of it’s kind which is providing very high-speed internet access. Currently, ViaSat claims that it will be offering up to 12Mbps download speed and up to 3 Mbps upstream speed. You can get a ViaSat connection for a $50 per month starting charges, although you will have to pay an additional $149.99 as a setup fee. One glitch in this excellent internet service is that currently, it caps a per user internet volume at 7 GB. If you exceed the limit, you get a very slow internet speed.

The company has built a ground-system too, together with the satellite. This ground-system features some web-acceleration technology which makes internet service through the satellite even faster, just like an optic fiber connection. Currently, only the users at East and West coasts of US are able to get the top speed internet from ViaSat. Those in other areas of US will receive an Exede5 connection, in which the top download speed if 5 Mbps while upload stream is 1 Mbps.

Exede is also entering a number of other realms with it’s satellite service. Dish is planning to collaborate with Exede to launch a bundle plan which will include the satellite TV service of Dish. The basic package of this bundle offer will start at $79.95. Jet Blue and Continental are also planning to launch a wi-fi service which makes use of Exede’s satellite internet service. According to Exede, such a service will be far more affordable for airliners, compared to the current internet they use from mobile companies. Moreover, Exede is also very confident that it will soon partner with a number of carriers.
