Oftentimes, Viasat is considered a Ka-band satellite player only; however, Viasat has a near-global Ku-band network that allows its customers to tap into coverage that spans more than 90% of the world’s most popular flight paths. This near-global network is primarily used by business aviation, government, maritime and some commercial air customers.
In 2017, Viasat will launch Viasat-2, a satellite system so unique it would be the catalyst for connecting continents, people and places. It would be the precursor to delivering ultimate internet experiences anywhere on the planet, where continuous, high-speed global connectivity was not a theory but a fact. Viasat-2 would foretell the future of a truly connected world, and would show how Viasat's work was not done ... but just beginning.
