[Via Satellite 10-21-2014] ViaSat is expanding its Exede satellite Internet service to the general aviation market. The new Exede In The Air for general aviation is faster than ViaSat Yonder, and employs the same broadband technology used for residential Exede Internet in the United States.

ViaSat conducted flight tests of the new service, which the company reports have proven the ability to switch between Ku and Ka-band satellites while conducting multi-site videoconferencing, live HDTV and movie streaming, and other high-bandwidth applications. The company will begin offering the service for flights over North America, Europe, the Mediterranean and Northern Africa in high-traffic areas.
