"This expansion phase is an overlay to our mobile network in key regions around the globe," said Paul Baca, GM/VP ViaSat Global Mobile Broadband. "This addition will raise the bar for baseline broadband performance and provide a foundation for new service plans."

The sustained growth in airborne satellite communications for ViaSat was recently highlighted by the delivery of the 500th VR-12 satellite terminal. This ultra-small aperture system has been a key technology enabler for both general aviation and government mobility markets, for "office in the sky" business applications, as well as enroute Command & Control and ISR services for military customers.

Details regarding regional coverage and availability will be announced in the coming weeks. For more information, go to www.viasat.com/broadband-satellite-networks/mobile-broadband.
