CARLSBAD, Calif., April 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Viasat Inc. (Nasdaq: VSAT), a global communications company, today announced it signed Telecom Consulting Group (TCG) as its most recent Master Agent partner. TCG's sub-agents will have full access to Viasat's expanding suite of high-speed business internet services.
TCG is a National Master Agency with more than 3,000 sub-agents selling telecommunications services to business customers across the U.S. As a Viasat Master Agent, TCG's sub-agents will be able to expand their coverage area and offer customers reliable and high-speed broadband options they couldn't get before. They will also now be able to offer their business customers a more diverse, resilient secondary connection for business continuity and SD-WAN implementations.
"Business customers are looking for more high-speed bandwidth options — across both rural and urban areas," said Dan Pirigyi, partner, TCG. "With more business applications moving to the cloud, a backup internet connection is becoming the standard. Using Viasat as a primary or a backup connection is a way to offer a truly diverse internet connection and run critical business applications like voice and video, credit card transactions and more."
"TCG agents can now sell broadband services to their customers whenever cable or fiber is out of reach," said Cody Catalena, vice president and general manager, Global Business Solutions, Viasat. "We're working toward making even more options available to businesses of all sizes and industries, so they can set up shop just about anywhere. We strive to enable all businesses in the continental U.S. to operate with broadband speeds."
Installation typically takes place within three to five days of ordering, giving business customers the ability to quickly deploy and use Viasat's fast, reliable connectivity service.
