Yes, here comes a commercial. For Internet users out in the country, a new satellite Internet provider has joined the playing field among HughesNet and WildBlue.
I have never endorsed HughesNet because I felt they underdelivered and overpriced their service. WildBlue overdelivered for the price, and now that I read ViaSat owns both WildBlue and Exede – with Exede boasting the faster speeds – I am curious to see if they will market Exede to the more demanding Internet users, where WildBlue will be marketed to the more casual Internet user.
Keep in mind – satellite is still satellite, and is very subject to weather conditions. So on a stormy or snowy day, your Internet experience might be terrible, but if you don’t have any other connectivity options, take a look at Exede: http://www.viasatresidential.com/exede .
