Viasat Inc. today unveiled its New Choice Home internet plans, a choice of five different packages offering customers anywhere from a 25 Mbps to 150 Mbps download speeds. According to a press release, the company has “optimized” its satellite network to boost speeds.
The plans are available in only select markets now. The provider eventually plans to roll out the plans nationwide.
Viasat New Choice customers will have access to 4K streaming support, streaming movies, videos and content as well as unlimited data. Plans start at $49.99 per month.
The company said that it is committed to delivering more bandwidth, speeds and data to its residential customers. The Company’s next-generation satellite constellation, ViaSat-3, is expected to be capable of delivering even greater bandwidth capabilities that will result in more speed, data and streaming options.
“With the launch of these New Choice home internet plans, we are introducing a new satellite internet experience to help meet the evolving needs of residential consumers,” said Steven Mesnick, Viasat general manager of U.S. broadband, in a prepared statement. “By optimizing our satellite network, we expect to deliver more data at faster speeds, more consistently. These speeds will enable us to provide the experience that our customers desire. Our new service plans demonstrate a technological achievement that we are proud of: delivering 100 times the speed compared to the first service plans we offered when we entered the residential internet market ten years ago with the launch of ViaSat-1. We are committed to innovation so that our customers can do more, faster.”
Just over a year ago, the company announced that the first satellite in its ViaSat-3 global constellation, which will serve the Americas and the surrounding oceans regions, had completed payload integration and performance testing.
