So after a week, the plan options are back for me. I noticed my $150 unlimited silver is now $100. I changed to that. Others may want to check. Thanks for the cheaper price. Good thing I checked, I would have been mad paying $50 more next month!

Garry,  I signed up 3 weeks ago (2nd time as customer) with the Silver 25, with 3 months at $100, then $150 after that.   My portal shows the plan now at $100 as you said.   Nice Christmas gift..

Nice. Just switched. Love it.

Even if gold is offered soon, 30 days until new plans anyhow.

I have the Freedom 150 ($100) and will stick with that for now, but I see the Unlimited Silver 25 Mpbs 150 (480p) is now offered for $100. Thank you for the heads up.

This pricing plan hasn't made it to beam 369... yet.  I hope it shows up quickly. I need a 3rd account here and I hope the newer lower prices are here by New Years day.  Then there will be a Classic 10, a Freedom 150, and an unlimited to choose from for different situations that make one plan better to use than another.  What... ME run out of data??? NEVER !!
 
C'mon Viasat... get on this....  yea, beam 369.

Free bump. I think this move is worthy of high praise. Don’t forget to check your plan offerings.

Viasat 2 is about to go live very soon.  I predict that a bunch of boo boos will start complaining all over again.

Some of you people could be hanged with a brand new rope and you would still complain.

True.

I think we have at least 30 days till new offerings though.

I wonder if the new modems will still use all our data when we are on vacation?

Plans are still being worked out  (I suspect probably for weeks to come) but they will vary where you are located as satellite will continue to work the same way it does now. I think the part that I as an employee that handles complaints all week is looking forward to is a shared workload between the 2 satellites and give some areas some much needed relief during peak hours.

This isn't everywhere. In my location it is still woefully overpriced at $150/month. So I get a lump of coal where I live :).

I’m not sure it hasn’t changed back where I live (to $150). Odd.

i was thrilled to see the lower price. Best Christmas gift ever as I was really struggling with the 150 which ends up being way more with taxes etc

You guys seriously pay over $100 per month for internet?  I would never do that.  I have 10 G a month for about $60.  I tried better plans, but they only extended the time to throttling a few days.  If the new plans with Viasat II are so expensive, I'm changing to cell phone service.

Hmmm. $60 for 10gb priority data or $100 for 150gb?

I do feel dumb.

Stephen has the advantage of an under utilized beam :)

And most likely no kids to watch YouTube during prime time hours. Makes a difference on how service is perceived.

$100 is my max. But not paying that for standard definition video. I pay $60 now for unlimited 5 hours a day and 1080p. Not a bad deal :).

I will once again revert back to my advice earlier this year when FREEDOM PLAN was the hot ticket everyone wanted: Routinely check for it and if you see it.....get it!!!

Sometimes these plans are like spotting Bigfoot. It may appear for a bit and then disappear or someone will say they saw it and when you go on you don't see it. It's all based on the beams sometimes enough strain is loosened on the beam and the top tier plans appear, other times the beam may be pretty full and that plan is pulled from being offered to keep performance up.

I was a little worried about this as the $100 silver was only available for one day. It never showed the price again for me on my account page. Whether a gift from the satellite gods or a freak error, ViaSat honored the price. I received my $100 invoice yesterday (plus leases fee and taxes- prorated of course). Thanks ViaSat.
