Looking for a new broadband solution and you live to far away from any close source for anything
above 1.5Mbs? Well how does 12Mbs sound for anyone no matter where you live? ViaSat has just announce the service for residential. They are partnering with Dish on their new Hopper and Internet as well, but you can buy it separate. The product is called Excede and you can purchase from the website.
I witnessed a demo of the product at CES and I was amazed by the speed. They claim they can keep the packets organized and they can keep bandwidth allocated per account, so they shouldn’t get over whelmed. It has passed FCC cert and you can buy it starting today. They told me they are competing with cellphone carriers and not DSL and Cable. Check out the link to the press release below.
The Exede service also includes advanced web acceleration technology to provide an Internet web browsing experience with “feels like fiber” performance. Through a constantly evolving variety of techniques that go far beyond simple caching of web content, this new web acceleration technology quickly delivers pages, even on media and video intensive websites.
