Exede Internet Service is powered by the most powerful communications satellite in existence – ViaSat-1. This satellite was launched in October 2011 and brings you the best quality satellite Internet service in the country. These new speeds are 8 times faster than our former service WildBlue. Exede delivers amazing download speeds up to 12 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 3 Mbps.
Exede Internet service works thanks to an amazing amount of high technology and innovation to bring fast Internet to your home. A signal is sent via ground equipment to the ViaSat-1 satellite. This satellite then sends the signal to the Exede dish that has been installed on your home. A cable from the dish to your modem carries the signal into your home, so that you can access the information you want on your computer or other Internet enabled device.
Apart from the amazing cutting edge satellite technology that Exede boasts, there are many reasons why Exede is the preferred choice for high speed satellite Internet service. You get:
While Exede is the ideal solution to high speed Internet needs in rural America, there are some people who may find that Exede does not provide what they are looking for most. Heavy gamers who enjoy fast twitch gaming will find that Exede does not offer the responsiveness needed for such games, because of the nature of satellite communications. There is lag time, which is practically imperceptible for most uses, but not for fast twitch gaming. Those who are heavy downloaders will also find that data caps imposed on satellite Internet providers by the federal government make satellite Internet a less than ideal choice.
