Viasat and Visiontec have expanded their partnership working to bring reliable internet service to residential homes in Brazil. Visat said in a March 31 release that it plans to reach 100% percent of the Brazilian continental territory, through Visiontec’s in-market sales, fulfillment, and technical support expertise by the time the rollout is complete. The two companies first announced their partnership in 2019 and since then, have installed Viasat’s satellite broadband equipment in over 11,000 fully operational sites across Brazil. 

Viasat chose to partner with Visiontec, a Brazilian-based satellite products distribution company, to help execute its residential service go-to-market strategy in regards to sales engagements, in-home installation, and on-site technical support. Viasat plans for its local field services teams to train Visiontec’s network of distributors, dealers and installers.

“Now more than ever, the world is looking to stay connected to friends, family and colleagues. At Viasat, we made a commitment to invest and grow our Brazilian internet services business, and have partnered with Visiontec, to help us better understand the market’s needs,” said Bruno Soares Henriques, Viasat’s Brazil commercial director. “We look forward to officially launching high-speed, high-quality residential internet service shortly — and delivering a premium internet service even to the hardest-to-reach locations.”
