How Viasat Satellite Internet Works

Similar to satellite TV, Viasat Internet is beamed directly to your home via a signal from our satellites in space. This is what makes Viasat High Speed Internet available just about anywhere (including internet in rural areas). There’s no need to worry about landlines or phone lines. Satellite internet is a fast, effective and excellent alternative to DSL and slower wireless services.

Viasat SATELLITE DISH

The dish for your Viasat High Speed Internet is about the same size as a modern satellite TV antenna dish. The Viasat dish is professionally mounted on your roof, the side of your home or on a sturdy pole nearby. You’ll need an official Viasat dish to receive Viasat High Speed Satellite Internet – you cannot use a satellite TV dish.

Viasat WIFI MODEM

About the size of a large book. You can put the modem on your desk or set it on a shelf next to your router. The newest Viasat WiFi Modem includes a built-in router and phone adapter.

OUR SATELLITE: ALWAYS PERFECTLY ALIGNED


Viasat Internet service comes from ViaSat-1, a satellite in what’s called geostationary orbit about 22,500 miles above the Earth. In this position, the satellite exactly matches the Earth’s rotation, so it’s always in the same position relative to the ground. This ensures a strong, consistent signal at all times during the day.

HERE’S HOW SATELLITE INTERNET FROM VIASAT WORKS:

1. You’re on your laptop or tablet and you click on your favorite website. The signal goes to your Viasat modem (or through your router first if you have one), then through a short cable to the dish outside your home.


2. The signal is beamed up to our satellite.


3. The satellite beams the signal down to one of our large antennas on the ground.


4. The antenna delivers the signal to the main internet.
