ViaSat Exede Internet Receives 2013 Edison Award For Innovation

"Our innovation required us to challenge conventional thinking every step of the way rather than achieving one big technology breakthrough," said Mark Miller, ViaSat CTO and chief architect of ViaSat-1. "Our primary focus was to find all the ways we could maximize throughput and drive down the cost of satellite bandwidth."

In January 2012, the company introduced Exede high-speed Internet service, powered by ViaSat-1. The new service is transforming satellite Internet and lifting the entire industry to a new, more competitive position against terrestrial alternatives. After its first full year of operation, ViaSat-1 supports more than 285,000 subscribers.  Approximately 40 percent of new Exede subscribers are choosing the satellite service over other alternatives available to them, such as DSL, cable, and mobile wireless for fixed home use – a major shift from the previous generations of satellite Internet service, considered to be a "last resort" for those with no other Internet alternative.

The Edison Awards is a program conducted by Edison Universe, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to fostering future innovators. The awards have been recognizing and honoring the best in innovations and innovators since 1987.  They honor game-changing innovations that are at the forefront of new product and service development, marketing and human-centered design and are one of the highest accolades a company can receive in the name of successful innovation.  For more information about the Edison Awards program and a list of past winners, visit www.edisonawards.com.
