The Star of the Show:

Debi Marie meets with Lisa Scalpone, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at ViaSat, to give us an education on the new generation of satellite high speed internet connectivity. In the past, satellite internet was surpassed by the emergence of newer and faster land based methods of connectivity. Just this year, with new advances in satellite technology, a dish with a view of the southern sky brings high speed internet to anyone living in the USA, even those living in rural areas outside the reach of cable systems. Debi sees how the system is installed, and soon she is experiencing the satellite high speed service herself, from computer and tablet.

Internet for Everyone

Internet for EveryoneIs your computer too slow? If you’ve ever been frustrated with the internet speed you get from your local provider, there’s a new option available for fast and versatile internet service.

Exede® Satellite High-Speed Internet has breakthrough technology that allows high speed internet just about anywhere, serving much of the continental U.S., Alaska, and Hawaii -- whether you live in the city, suburbs or out in the country.

• Exede’s new technology is built from the ground up.

• ViaSat designed one of the world’s most powerful communications satellites and put it in orbit to serve North America with amazingly fast internet service.
