Of the 3-4  people on here that got a large plan only a couple have checked back in  and updated all the inquiring minds, looks like you took the leap , Be a trend setter and be the first to go over 150 and tell us how it fares :)

Being that there is hardly anybody on it, I don't think you would see much difference, if at all. I mean if there is only one person in line, you are at the front and back!

Remember you dont get slowed, onky deprioritized. When there is nobody else to depriortize, it will be fine...for now. But that will change if/when Viasat-2 becomes available to more locations.

Viasat I think projects they will need more capacity in about 2 years. Hence, Viasat-3.

Being that there is so few people on the satellite, I would expect that.

Kind of what satellite internet should be isn’t it?

Here’s what will happen. People on ViaSat 2 will get used to having cake and eating it too. When mandatory dietary restrictions start, it will be on like Donkey Kong.

Viasat-1 had great speeds at one time too. And so did every new satellite that provided internet from its inception.

That is why Viasat-3 Is being targeted in 2020. To try and get ahead of the congestion problem that ultimately happens.

Let's hope Viasat stays on schedule with Viasat-3, it comes online on time and under budget, and then we can all benefit!
