In 1986 Viasat was founded in San Diego and grew to become a leading technology innovator for business, government and the U.S. military, focusing on satellite communications. One of its largest customers was a small U.S. company called WildBlue.

WildBlue started as a company in 1999 with a small group of communications experts based in Denver. Early on, Viasat became WildBlue’s technology supplier for its ground network and customer equipment. It was a partnership that would last many years, ultimately resulting in WildBlue becoming part of Viasat a decade later.

WildBlue’s first satellite launched in 2004. The next year, the company began delivering Internet services to people in the rural U.S. Over the next 5 years, WildBlue experienced record growth, launched a second satellite and leased space on a third satellite. But, over time, 1.5 Mbps didn’t seem all that fast anymore. WildBlue customers said they needed faster Internet speeds.

In January 2008, WildBlue announced that it was building the world’s highest capacity communications satellite, which launched in 2011, and offered a new class of Satellite Internet service.

In December 2009, Viasat acquired WildBlue including its customers, satellites and operational expertise.

In October 2011, Viasat successfully launched Viasat-1, into orbit over North America and in March 2012 the new Exede satellite Internet service WOWed technology reporters.

In June 2017, The Viasat-2 satellite system was launched and is now providing double the bandwidth of Viasat-1 and seven times the coverage.

All Viasat satellite Internet services are delivered by the same team of people. From the communications engineers to your local dealers and support staff who answer your calls, we’re here to help make your Satellite Internet experience the best it can be regardless of the name.
