Small team has big goals for Europe as ViaSat-3 constellation moves forward
Viasat's Evan Dixon discusses the company's increasing presence in the European broadband market and how satellite can help Europe meet its connectivity goals.
As is the case in many parts of the world, many areas in Europe not covered by traditional ISPs can be served by satellite broadband.
With Viasat service recently launched on Finnair aircraft within Europe, we took a few moments to ask Harri Valkama what this meant for the airline. Valkama is the manager of in-flight e-commerce at Finnair.
With high-speed, 50 Mbps from satellite now available from Viasat in Europe, it's time the technology is recognized as a viable alternative to fiber in many areas.
Viasat teams in Europe are busily identifying locations for the ground network that will support the ViaSat-3 satellite when it launches in approximately three years.
The airline has signed an agreement with Viasat Inc., to install high-speed wireless internet network on its entire Airbus A320 series short-haul fleet.
