Well, now that Trump and this Congress has done away with Net Neutrality, I’ve noticed a real slowing of the download speeds. Has anyone else noticed this as well?

Hi Paul.

While the rollbacks to pre-2015 regulations with the FCC commonly referred to as Net Neutrality DID in fact get the legal green light last week for rolling back regulations there's still a lot in the air. Legal battles, state regulations, etc so it'll be quite some time until any effects are seen if at all.

 With that said, Viasat has not changed our internet plans, policies or operating behavior. Our service is operating very much in the same way it has since we've launched. Summer is a typically busier time of year when some of our harder squeezed beams are hit pretty hard as summer schedules kick in. I will encourage you to email us at viasatlistens@viasat.com and we can take a look for you.
