Higher capacity. Lower cost.

Viasat’s technology offers the best bandwidth economics in the industry, allowing licensed satellite operators to reach more customers and provide better service


Total global bandwidth consumption is doubling every two to three years. In this environment of exponential growth in demand, satellite operators need to deliver the most capacity possible at the lowest possible cost.


Viasat’s revolutionary satellite system designs led to the launch of ViaSat-1, at launch the highest capacity satellite in the world, with ten times the throughput of any previous Ka-band satellite.  But ViaSat-1 was just the start. Our ViaSat-2 satellite system is the most advanced, highest-capacity communications satellite in orbit today, and our ViaSat-3 constellation – a trio of satellites in development now – will take satellite broadband to previously-unimagined heights.
