I PAID A CHUNK OF.change fOR IT.. if they don't I'll hire my uncle
Exede did offer the Lifetime Lease back in 2012 when they were trying to get Wildblue subscribers to switch to Exede. I purchased the lifetime lease, and it was a good deal. Viasat still honors the lifetime lease, but if I remember correctly, it was only offered for a few months.
Got my lifetime equipment lease a year ago February for $299.99, so you don't break even until the 2 1/2 year mark. Not sure if I'll stay past my 2 year commitment, and I definitely would not change to Viasat 2 and incur another 2 year commitment. This is a terrible company to do business with! Anything they offer that sounds good to the customer, they have some legal mubo jumbo make sure they can take it away!
