Viasat-3 Launch Date

The launch date of the satellite ViaSat-3 is set on May 29, 2021 and is supposed to go operational on December 31 2021. It was planned to launch sooner than this time but there was an issue with an unnamed component supplier which caused the delay. There are three different satellites that are going to be launched. The first is going to be ViaSat-3 Americas satellite which would allow Viasat to supply all of the United States with satellite internet. The second satellite to launch will be the ViaSat-3 EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) satellite which will give service in those areas. This satellite will launch with the third satellite subsequently of the first. The third satellite is the Viasat-3 APAC (Aisa-Pacific) and will launch in the second half of 2022. In the past Viasat announced that ViaSat-3 EMEA will launch roughly six months after ViaSat-3 Americas. Each of the satellites are supposed to have more than a terabyte per second of total capacity and each will have a capacity four times the size of what ViaSat-2 had. This will enable individual users to receive up to a gigabit per second internet connection. Viasat will soon be able to bring satellite internet to the whole world with the satellites they are sending up and the technology they are using.
