To change your payment method, log into your account and select “View or Pay Bill.” Then click “Payment Method” and click “Edit.” From there, you can enter a new card or account number.

You can also contact customer service by phone to edit your payment method.

What to prep before you call

  • Have your Viasat account number handy. You can find this on a recent billing statement.
  • You may need a pen and paper to take notes about the call.
  • Have your new address if you’re calling about moving your service.
  • If you can’t find your account number, they can look up your account number with the phone number associated with your account.

Viasat installation

When you sign up for satellite internet service with Viasat, you’ll need to have professional installation—which is free of charge in many cases. Standard installation is covered by Viasat, which is available to customers who live within 50 miles of an installation technician and do not need special adaptations to install the Viasat dish receiver on the roof of their home.

Installation details

Your installation technician will arrive with all the equipment and tools necessary to install your new Viasat service, including a Viasat modem/router, a satellite dish, cables, and weather proofing materials. 

  • Plan for two to three hours for your installation appointment.
  • Someone over the age of 18 needs to be at the home during installation.
  • You and your technician can decide the best place for the satellite dish.

The satellite dish receiver can be installed on the roof, on a side wall of the house, or in the yard on a pole. It needs to be at least four and a half feet above the ground and have a clear, unobstructed view of the southern sky. For more information about the Viasat installation process, check out Viasat’s installation video.

Learn about Viasat internet service

Viasat is a satellite internet provider popular in rural and hard-to-reach areas. The Viasat satellite system makes internet service available to virtually all residents of the US. You don’t need to live in the suburbs or the city center to get it—no cable wiring is required. You don’t even need to have a phone line. Click here for our Viasat FAQ page.

Like other satellite internet services, Viasat is typically slower than cable or fiber internet and has limits on how much full-speed data you can use every month. You won’t get cut off if you exceed your data allotment for the month, but your speeds will slow significantly. Also, VPNs and fast-paced multiplayer games don’t work well on satellite internet because of the latency (or delay in data transfer) of satellite connections.

The phone number for Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) is 1-855-810-1308. Viasat offered satellite internet service under the brand names Exede and WildBlue until 2017, when a new satellite system was launched and all residential internet service was rebranded as Viasat.
