Bringing Community Internet to Brazil
See how Viasat is helping connect the nearly half of Brazilians who don’t have Internet access.
We’re Viasat — and we’re working to change this in thousands of rural communities across Brazil by bringing fast, affordable broadband internet via satellite to unconnected and underserved areas.
Helping kids with homework. Connecting families with distant relatives. Helping farmers manage their businesses. Access to the Internet can transform lives — which is why we’re bringing it to the hardest-to-reach places in Brazil.
Viasat is working to bring community Wi-Fi where it’s needed most across Brazil — because we believe everyone should have equal access to the internet.
In July 2019, Viasat launched a special trial of the Community Internet service in the state of São Paulo, deploying free hotspots to 10 exclusive communities that previously had slow or non-existent internet connectivity. With speeds up to 25 Mbps, residents in these communities are now able to access the internet at high speeds.

Viasat already provides internet access to over a million people across Latin America within walking distance of a hotspot — and working with Telebras, we’ll be connecting thousands of rural communities throughout Brazil to fast, affordable internet.

Community residents purchase pay-as-you-go internet from a local Viasat hotspot host, allowing them to connect to our satellite internet network though a local Wi-Fi connection.
It’s a business that benefits everyone in your community — connecting kids, families, and businesses with the resources they need to succeed.
It’s more than just another revenue stream — you’re bringing more customers to your current business to help drive incremental sales.
As a Community Internet service provider, you’ll get personal access to the internet — which opens up a new world of benefits for you and your business.
