Viasat Inc., an American communications provider, says its satellite internet services in Ukraine and Europe are being disrupted by a “computer incident”.
Based in Carlsbad, Calif., Viasat provides high-speed satellite broadband access and secure network systems to military and commercial customers in the United States and around the world. The issue stems from Viasat’s purchase of the Ka-SAT satellite from the satellite’s launcher and former owner, Eutelsat, in April 2021.
“As we try to restore service to affected consumers, we are also reviewing and evaluating our European network and systems to determine the cause of the problem. We are also implementing other network protections to prevent any additional consequences. authorities said.

In a statement to PaxEx.Aero, another Germany-based ISP, EUSANET, the company said it was also suffering from issues.
