ViaSat Introduces New Exede Business Internet Service Plans

Jan. 26, 2016

ViaSat Inc. introduced new Exede® Business internet service plans that will offer a variety of affordable high-speed satellite internet service options for primary connectivity, plus a new internet back-up plan. The continuity service offers businesses a diverse access redundant connection to avoid service interruptions during outages with their primary internet service provider.

The new Exede Business plans offer up to 15 Mbps download and 4 Mbps upload speeds that support applications such as video, data, voice, remote monitoring, point-of-sale (POS) systems and cloud connectivity. By offering the new service plans, Exede Business users get more choice, and dealers and other sales agents can fill in coverage gaps by providing affordable high-speed internet connectivity to business customers in the U.S. Additionally, for those businesses requiring a back-up connectivity solution, the new Exede Redundancy plan offers a reliable, low-cost solution that provides peace of mind with 15 Mbps download speeds in areas of the country that serve over 80 percent of the population, and 5 Mbps download speeds in other areas. The monthly price of the Exede Redundancy plan starts as low as $59.99 and the monthly price of the primary service plans starts as low as $99.99.

The new Exede Business plans are never slowed because the data allowance was exceeded, and the plans allow businesses to continue receiving service at the same speeds through an automated feature where additional usage is purchased. The monthly price of each Exede Business plan includes persistent IP addresses as well as an equipment leasing fee.

"ViaSat's Exede service changed the perception for residential and in-flight satellite internet, and we are changing perceptions again with Exede Business – by offering a range of service plans that provide fast, affordable, reliable connectivity with varying data allowances throughout most of the U.S.," said Dan Turak, vice president, Exede Business, ViaSat. "By offering new dynamic service plans that meet the needs of our business customers and prospects, we are empowering businesses to do more online. We are also giving our business channel more opportunities to engage with new and existing customers where their prior internet options were inadequate or too expensive."
