ViaSat increases Ku-band capacity.

INTERNET BUSINESS NEWS-(C)1995-2013 M2 COMMUNICATIONS

ViaSat Inc. (NASDAQ: VSAT) has signed four new contracts that increase the total Ku-band capacity of its global mobility network by more than 60 percent. This investment in additional bandwidth will be reserved for government and general aviation business growth and customer requirements for high data rates for mobile satellite communications.

The sustained growth in airborne satellite communications for ViaSat was recently highlighted by the delivery of the 500th VR-12 satellite terminal. This ultra-small aperture system has been a key technology enabler for both general aviation and government mobility markets, for "office in the sky" business applications, as well as enroute Command & Control and ISR services for military customers.

ViaSat delivers fast, secure communications, Internet, and network access to virtually any location for consumers, governments, enterprise, and the military. The company offers fixed and mobile satellite network services including Exede by ViaSat, which features ViaSat-1, the world's highest capacity satellite; service to more than 1,750 mobile platforms, including Yonder Ku-band mobile service; satellite broadband networking systems; and network-centric military communication systems and cybersecurity products for the US and allied governments.
