A whole new world of content will open up to you with your broadband connection. And with Exede, you get an "always on" connection which means no dialing-in to get high-speed access to the Internet.

How It Works

Exede links your computer to the Internet with a high-speed connection via our new high-speed satellite. Your Exede equipment connects your home or small office at speeds much, much faster than a dial-up connection — in fact, file transfer speeds can be as much as 30 times faster than dial-up*. A single 26″ satellite mini-dish and a modem are all you need.

Here is a diagram showing a typical Exede customer set-up:

The Internet

Accessing the Internet will be so much more enjoyable and productive once you replace your dial-up connections with Exede. Surfing the Internet at high-speeds opens up a Exede world full of information and entertainment. You will now be able to surf the Web at much faster speeds, download music and movies, share photos with friends and family, do research and school work, and much, much more.

Exede Mini-dish

Exede’s mini-dish (28″ x 26″) both receives signals from the Exede satellite, and sends signals from the customer up to the satellite. The Exede mini-dish can be mounted on a roof, wall or via pole mount in the ground. Exede provides professional installation of the Exede equipment which will take approximately 2-3 hours.

Exede Satellite Modem

A Exede modem is required to connect one or more computers to the Exede network. Exede uses standardized modem technology to offer a low-cost, small satellite modem.

Your Computer

Exede works with virtually any modern computer including both PCs and Macs. Your computer will have high-speed Internet access via an ethernet connection to the Exede modem, and will work in your home or small office. You may connect your computer directly to the Exede modem, or you can attach a wireless hub or router to the Exede modem and connect wirelessly.

Anti-Virus Software

Customers are required to have an up-to-date anti-virus software on their PC(s). Exede provides all new customers F-Secure, a leading anti-virus software package, for FREE for the first 12 months of service (a $35 value). F-Secure is available for $2.95 a month after your first year.

Our Infrastructure

Exede Gateways

Exede has 11 gateways located throughout the U.S. and Canada that efficiently connect Exede’s satellite access network with the Internet. Each gateway consists of microwave, Internet, and other broadband equipment that quickly and efficiently route traffic from the customer’s PC to the Internet and back. Exede connects the gateways to the Internet via a state-of-the-art fiber backbone.

Exede Satellite

Exede has designed a state-of-the-art Ka-band communications system aboard our own Exede-1 satellite and Telesat’s Anik F2 satellite, covering the contiguous U.S. with a total of 66 spot beams. Our satellites occupy a geostationary orbit 22,500 miles above the equator at 111.1° West Longitude. Exede chose the 20/30 GHz Ka-band frequencies and a spot-beam architecture as the most efficient and effective technology platform to offer broadband via satellite.
