Looking ahead to the day when it can sell satellite internet service on its new Viasat-2 satellite, Viasat Inc. said it expanded its relationship with Little Rock, Arkansas-based Perfect 10 to provide nationwide fulfillment services.
Financial terms of the expanded deal were not disclosed.
Viasat (Nasdaq: VSAT) launched Viasat-2 in June and expects to kick off high-speed home and business internet service this month. The company said service on Viasat-2 will rival the speed of cable. The satellite offers coverage to the lower 48 states, as well as air routes and sea lanes in the Atlantic Ocean. It also covers Canada, Mexico and Central America.
Carlsbad-based Viasat said its field service team will continue to train Perfect 10 technicians, subcontractors and dealer teams “to ensure customers’ internet demands are rapidly met with an easy, no-hassle customer service experience.”
Perfect 10, also known as PerfectVision Manufacturing, distributes satellite, broadband and wireless products. The privately held business has revenue of $400 million and seven distribution centers.
