TBI, Viasat Sign Master Agent Agreement to Bring Viasat's Business Internet Services to More Businesses Nationwide

June 14, 2018

Viasat Inc. announced it signed TBI as its latest Master Agent partner to offer Viasat's business internet services. TBI is a leading telecommunications distributor having a network of 2,500 sales agents that include: sales partners, value-added resellers, managed service providers and consultants. 

As a Viasat Master Agent, TBI's network will be able to offer Viasat high-speed satellite internet as an option to their enterprise and business customers across the U.S., filling broadband coverage gaps where business customers want assured, reliable high-speed broadband communications. Additionally, with Viasat satellite internet service, TBI business customers gain access to a diverse, resilient secondary connection for business continuity and SD-WAN implementations. Installation of service typically takes place within three to five days of ordering, giving business customers the ability to quickly deploy and use Viasat's fast, reliable connectivity service.

"Today's announcement is a win for TBI agents and our business customers, as we can now sell broadband services to places where cable and/or fiber are out of reach," said Geoff Shepstone, president, TBI. "Viasat has a compelling business internet service with unlimited data plans and the highest industry speeds we've seen in the satellite internet market. Our deal with Viasat gives our customers more communications options available to support their sales and businesses operations."

Viasat is preparing to launch additional business internet plans made possible by expanding the Company's satellite fleet with ViaSat-2, which will afford TBI and other Master Agent organizations the unique ability to serve nearly every business in the continental U.S. with the fastest satellite broadband speeds.

"We're on a mission to make broadband accessible to more businesses no matter where they set up shop," said Cody Catalena, vice president and general manager, Global Business Solutions, Viasat. "We're looking forward to working closely with TBI and their network to make this possible and meet the growing demand for more broadband in more places."
