Viasat revealed new increased speeds, service packages and hardware incentives. The new In-Flight Connectivity (IFC) business aviation service packages aims to enable new and existing Ku-band customers the ability to upgrade their connectivity solution with faster speeds.

The new Viasat Ku Advanced packages are available now with increased speeds up to 10 Megabits Per Second (Mbps) (resulting in a doubling of speeds for most existing customers), rollover of unused data allowances, regional, and hourly service plans and the ability to stream audio and video content. Current and future Viasat business aviation customers are now able to take advantage of Ku Advanced increased speeds with near global coverage and an easy migration path to Viasat’s Ka-band system through use of existing aircraft wiring.

“Today’s offerings give business jet owners with legacy aircraft and Ku radomes, the ability to deliver an enhanced experience,” said Claudio D’Amico, business area director, Business Aviation, Viasat. “We continue to add more capabilities to our network—enabling us to give business jet owners more choice in selecting an in-flight connectivity service package that meets their in-flight internet needs and budget. Our solutions enable customers to find the right balance between capital and operational costs while taking advantage of an enhanced connectivity experience.”
