Viasat, Visiontec Broaden Brazilian Partnership to Focus on Delivering High-Speed, High-Quality Satellite Internet to Homes across Brazil English

March 31, 2020

Viasat Inc. and Visiontec, a Brazilian-based satellite products distribution company, announced today they have expanded their partnership to focus on bringing fast, reliable internet service to residential homes across Brazil. Upon completion of the launch rollout, Viasat will be able to reach 100 percent of the Brazilian continental territory, through Visiontec's in-market sales, fulfillment and technical support expertise.

By partnering with Visiontec, Viasat has a dedicated, trusted, local Brazilian partner to help execute its residential service go-to-market strategy—from assisting in sales engagements to providing quick in-home installations and on-site technical support. Viasat's local field services teams will train Visiontec's vast network of distributors, dealers and installers to rapidly meet the demand for high-speed residential internet service in the country.

Bruno Soares Henriques, Viasat's Brazil commercial director commented, "Now more than ever, the world is looking to stay connected to friends, family and colleagues. At Viasat, we made a commitment to invest and grow our Brazilian internet services business, and have partnered with Visiontec, to help us better understand the market's needs. We look forward to officially launching high-speed, high-quality residential internet service shortly—and delivering a premium internet service even to the hardest-to-reach locations."

"Viasat's advanced technology and service capabilities will help Brazilians, located coast-to-coast, join the digital ecosystem—which is critically important in today's world," said Antonio Carlos de Moraes, business development director, Visiontec. "By broadening our relationship with Viasat, we can help more Brazilians get access to a premium internet service that will offer greater capabilities for people to be productive and entertained online. We see this expanded partnership as a win for everyone."

The Viasat/Visiontec partnership was initially announced in June 2019. Since that time period, Visiontec has successfully installed Viasat's satellite broadband equipment in over 11,000 fully operational sites across Brazil, including at remote schools, hospitals and government facilities. Viasat's ground network and infrastructure uses bandwidth from the Telebras SGDC-1 satellite to deliver satellite internet services.
