Viasat has removed internet speed limits and doubled its minimum committed internet speed to
Ka-band business aviation customers who now also have the option to subscribe to Viasat Unlimited Streaming, which allows passengers to access online media services without impacting monthly data allowances.
“Today’s offering delivers a completely new and premium in-flight experience made possible by Viasat’s innovative technology,” said Claudio D’Amico, business area director, Business Aviation, Viasat. “We believe this key differentiator is expected to dramatically change the onboard connectivity experience for Viasat’s business aviation Ka-band customers. By removing speed limits, we are creating a home-like connectivity experience for mid-cabin to large- and long-range business jets.”
The Viasat Ka-band business aviation IFC solution uses Viasat’s Global Aero Terminal 5510, which taps into the ViaSat-1, ViaSat-2 and European Ka-band satellite platform and is expected to be forward-compatible with Viasat’s next-generation satellite systems. Forward-compatibility allows customers to install the Viasat shipset and subscribe to a Viasat service package today, with assurances that they can access additional satellite capacity, including larger data volumes and expanded coverage once Viasat launches its ViaSat-3 satellite constellation.
