ViaSat on Monday introduced residential voice services to its Exede broadband satellite service. A ViaSat spokeswoman termed the move "an important step forward for our service and the Exede brand." Federal regulators are likely to look with approval on ViaSat's voice, video and data triple-play service, Joan Engebretson writes, noting that the Federal Communications Commission believes a voice satellite offering can be useful in meeting its broadband-access goals in rural areas.
