How does Viasat provide satellite internet downloads for yachts to 174Mbps?

Viasat Internet Gear
  • As a comparison, most competitor’s Ku Band Vsat satellites have a maximum throughput capacity of about 15 Gigabits per second.
  • That 15GB per second throughput is split and shared between all of the Vsat units on the Yachts, Ships, and Oil Rigs using that same satellite.
  • Viasat’s current capacity is 260 Gigabits per second, simply a different universe.
  • Viasat currently supports commercial airlines like JetBlue and Delta, where 150 passengers simultaneously surf and stream internet content, with no issues.
  • And it gets even better in 2022, with the launch of the Global Viasat 3 constellation. Each or the three Viasat 3 satellites will be adding 1000 Gigabit per second to the existing constellation.
  • The Viasat technology, already famous with commercial airlines, brings an at home/at office Internet experience at sea including streaming and videoconferencing.

      Viasat has a built in high speed 4/5g backup, at no extra cost.
  • Why does Viasat have a cellular component as part of the system?
      In addition to backing up your high speed internet connection, the 4/5g modem allows the Viasat techs to remotely access your system for diagnostics, adjustments, and software updates.
  • What is the difference between Viasat sailor 600 and Viasat sailor 900?
      The Sailor 900 antenna dome is significantly larger than the Sailor 600. Larger antennas equates to better functionality in “fringe” coverage areas, and in heavy weather situations. The larger 900 antenna also equated to more bandwidth and speed throughput.
  • Can I upgrade my existing Sailor 600 or 900 system to Viasat service?
      Unfortunately, no, you cannot upgrade your current Sailor 600 or 900 KU band Vsat. KU band Sailor 600 and 900 systems must be replaced when upgrading vessel to Viasat system.
