So, what are your DAP Speeds now that Liberty is the main thing ?

I'm pretty much getting "the liberty pass" speeds right now.

Download :: 4.8 Mbps 600 kB/s

Which is WAYYYYYYYYYY higher than 20-25 I'd normally see.

I have noticed since the Liberty plans I have more outages and slower DAP speeds I am still on the old plan where I have unlimited 12 to 5am ....all I can say if it keeps up my contract is up this month and I have been offered a 50/50gb plan from Hughes and fixing to switch after being with wildblue/exede for almosts 10yrs

Hopefully I can clear that up. The Data Restriction speed on our classic spans should still be as they were before but we are seeing the Liberty Plan become more and more available and I expect that to probably be the case leading into our launch of ViaSat 2 next summer. I'm glad you're seeing better speeds though!  As for when the Liberty Plan will be available I'd say Stay Tuned! The next few months should be pretty exciting for some of our customers and of course that's the tip of the iceberg as ViaSat 2 will lead to some pretty awesome stuff for us!

They are at the mercy of spacex as they are the ones with the rocket to take it up 22k miles. That rocket being the falcon heavy which is 3 first stage falcon 9's operating as one rocket. Sadly with the set back eariler this year with the explosion and total loss of vehicle and payload falcon heavys test launch got pushed back some. Good news Elon Musk has said he is going to do everything he can to launch everything that was set to launch this year.

This is true. Rocket launches are hard to pinpoint a precise date. But Again I just say "Stay Tuned" we got some pretty cool things coming in the next 2 months even.

I think we have some really good news coming and it won't just be that Liberty plans are offered in more areas.  The next 5 years will be filled with amazing speeds and data allowances.  My crystal ball can be seen HERE.

I am not even in DAP havent even used a GB yet since my month reset on the 8th and my modem went down yesterday morning now this morning these are my speeds checked modem status and it says GOOD not lost packets ...Tria status all in green and good..... http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/482679294 sad so sad ....funny how everything runs fine and dandy with Exede until new plans come out I just paid my last month on my contract and will NOT pay to have this fixed since I can go to a better plan and not pay a dime to get it set up with Exedes competitor . Couple months ago I went through this same thing after my reset date. I do not believe its my equipment like I stated its shows its all working fine

Hi  Soyna, thanks for speaking to me.  I'm glad your speeds improved when directly connected to the modem and your computer. Exede Diana
