Well.... I never thought I would say Viasat Internet would be slower than dial-up, but tonight I have hit a new all-time low.... Download :: 24 kbps
Yea. Deku. I couldn't even watch anime if I wanted to!
I have used less than 50GB of my 150GB of priority.
I really think things went south with the "unlimited" plans offering 150GB priority. Then they figured Viasat-2 would offload some subs along with coverage of the high-density spot beams.
Well that didn't go to plan.
Tough night in Inverness monitoring the network .
Speeds in the evening, 1.5 to 2, just did a speed test 32 Mbps(10:14 AM). I use to get 3.4 or 3.5 on fast.com now if i get 1 i'm fortunate. The last update 14.6 really put the screws to the streaming speed.
Once i went unlimited silver, and had to use the new Big Brother Modem, Viasat took control.
I really avoid doing much during prime time because of the "congestion" so all in all i work with what i've got, just as i did for several years on the 25 Classic with LNFZ.
But it sucks that what 90 percent of the country take for granted, do what and all they want when ever they want" and we have to plan and do our work arounds to do what is really becoming necessary functions.
To keep this somewhat balanced, Viasat is not stagnating, they are trying V2, not a total success. Hopefully something is on the not to distant horizon.
