Guinness World Record Title for Highest Capacity Satellite

world record medal
The ViaSat-1 satellite that powers Exede® Internet
service has earned a Guinness World Records® title
as the highest-capacity communications satellite in

typical Ku-band satellite and 10 times the
throughput of any Ka-band satellite launched prior
to ViaSat-1. Combined with the company's
innovative ground system, the new system is raising
the standard for economics and quality of service in
satellite Internet.
Popular Science 2012 Best of What's New

Poular Science award
The well-known tech magazine recognized Exede in
its annual Best of What's New special issue. The
magazine reviews thousands of new products and
innovations and chooses the top 100 winners
across 12 categories.

For 25 years, Popular Science has honored the
innovations that surprise and amaze us those
that make a positive impact on our world today
and challenge our view of what's possible in the
future, said Jacob Ward, editor-in-chief of
Popular Science. The Best of What's New Award is
the magazine's top honor, and the 100 winners
chosen from among thousands of entrants each
a revolution in its field.

Exede was recognized in the Hardware category.

This is a great honor that adds to the very positive feedback we're seeing in the
marketplace for the new brand of high-speed satellite services that ViaSat-1 is enabling,
said Mark Dankberg, chairman and CEO of ViaSat. The conceptualizing, design, building,
and launch of the system took an extraordinary effort by so many of our people and this
award is a great testimony to what they accomplished.

You can read about it in the December, 2012 issue of Popular Science. Here is some of
what they had to say:

With download speeds up to 12 megabits per second, the satellite broadband service
delivers faster rates than DSL. Engineers increased the satellite's capacity by adding a
number of small antennas; the extra hardware can transmit twice the usual amount of
data-carrying beams, up to 72. Popular Science
