Press Release

CARLSBAD, CA – Sept. 9, 2013 — All 67 Florida counties are included in the initial rollout for the new Exede® Evolution satellite Internet plan from ViaSat Inc. (NASDAQ: VSAT). The new plan, which provides unlimited, high-speed access to web pages and email, is another way that satellite Internet, specifically Exede Internet, is becoming a better choice for many households rather than a last resort for a few.

For a monthly service fee of $64.99, Florida households can receive unlimited access to email and web pages, always at full speed. ViaSat is also offering a promotion that waives the entire initial set-up fee of $149.99 for the service. The Exede Evolution plan includes:

  • Download speeds of up to 12 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 3 Mbps – faster than typical DSL
  • Early Bird Free Zone, which provides full-speed, unmetered access to everything on the Internet, including video, from 3 a.m. to 8 a.m. daily.
  • 5 GB of data to use for everything other than access to web pages and email, including streaming video, music, and voice and video chat.
  • Introductory offer of anti-virus/anti-spyware software.

“We created Exede Evolution as part of our overall plan to continue to improve our core service in ways that are different from other options in the market,” said Lisa Scalpone, vice president, Satellite Services. “Our team continues its focus on delivering a high-quality service and a great experience for our customers. We launched Exede Internet with the goal of making sure every one of our customers on the ViaSat-1 satellite receives our best speed — and now we want to make sure that customers who want unlimited, full speed access to web pages and email get that as well.”

Scalpone said the Exede service line will continue to include its traditional data plans based on data usage, now called “Classic” plans. Any current subscriber may switch over to the Evolution plan at no charge, if Evolution is offered in the subscriber’s area.
