Good things happen when people have access to the internet

Kids learn of places and people far beyond their hometowns.

Health professionals find better ways to care for their patients.

Families can stay connected across mountains, borders, and oceans.

And so much more.

We believe that the world should be connected, no matter where someone lives

Viasat has spent over 30 years finding better ways for people to access the internet in every corner of the globe – and we’re not done yet.

Currently, we have 50,000 active Wi-Fi hotspots in the Americas. By the end of 2018, we’re projected to have 250,000. That number will only continue to grow – as well as the people we connect – through partnerships with communities, local companies, and local governments. With our strategic partner, Telebras, we plan on connecting millions of Brazilians from every corner of the country.

Everyone deserves access to the world. Together, we can make that happen.
