Can’t complain

I live in a fairly rural area in Mississippi.

I have been enjoying Viasat as of late. Now I will say the speeds when I go over the data limit are a pain right now(0.30mbps and I think that’s cause it’s school break right now) as last time I went over it only slowed to 5 mbps.

However, this internet has been a blessing as I used to have DSL from AT&T that consistently stayed at 0.50mbps 24/7. And no matter how many times we called and threatened to switch, nothing changed.

So here I am with Viasat. Where at least I’ve been getting 30mbps for two-three weeks as opposed to never.

So thanks Viasat for giving me an option when I have no other choices for internet.

Lousiana? You must not be on Stephens magic beam or you wouldn't get that slow!

Nah Mississippi.

I’ve had Viasat 2 months now. So far this is the first time it’s gotten this slow after my data limit was reached.

They’ve been so much more reliable than my last provider.

Cory is in Mississippi, not Louisiana.

I had similar complaints about AT&T DSL where I live as well. Viasat is much more reliable than AT&T where I live. My 12 mbps plan with Viasat is faster than the 18 mbps plan I had with AT&T.

What plan are you on and how much data have you used for the month?

Silver 25. And I’ve used around 70 gb this month, past the 60 gb limit.

We also have a decent sized storm that moved in yesterday afternoon to my area and, is slowly inching eastward, likely affecting Mississippi as well. A lower SNR will slow things down. Should be better later today or into tomorrow.
