Global communications company Viasat Inc and Brazil-based satellite products distribution company Visiontec have announced the expansion of their partnership to focus on bringing fast, reliable internet service to residential homes across Brazil.
Upon completion of the launch rollout, Viasat says it will be able to reach 100 percent of the Brazilian continental territory, with the help of Visiontec’s in-market sales, fulfilment and technical support.
Visiontec will help in a number of areas – from assisting in sales engagements to providing quick in-home installations and on-site technical support. Viasat’s local field services teams will train Visiontec’s vast network of distributors, dealers and installers to rapidly meet the demand for high-speed residential internet service in the country.
Visiontec is a 100 per cent Brazilian company with over 27 years working in the manufacture and design of analogue and digital receivers for satellite and terrestrial TV and connectivity services.
The partnership between Viasat and Visiontec was initially announced in June 2019. Since then, Visiontec has successfully installed Viasat’s satellite broadband equipment in over 11,000 fully operational sites across Brazil, including remote schools, hospitals and government facilities.
Viasat’s ground network and infrastructure uses bandwidth from the Telebras SGDC-1 satellite to deliver satellite internet services.
