EasyCare price increase

Just got an email from Viasat stating that EasyCare is going up to $8.99 per month. What do you all think? Is it still worth it? I still don't understand why Viasat charges a $10/month lease fee on the modem when you have to pay extra for EasyCare.

My personal opinion....after all, I AM a paying Viasat customer....... is that this is NOT a smart move on Viasat's part. A 50% hike is extreme to say the least. If the idea is to raise revenue, I predict it will fail miserably because so many people will cancel it that in the end, actual net revenue will actually decrease.

Also, not only is Easy Care being jacked up by 50%, you no longer get a FREE dish-relocate....even WITH Easy Care it will set you back $95. 

I am NOT impressed.

Yep. I agree to save the money. Or just raise the lease fee a few dollars/month for everyone, and throw in one free relocate and two service calls per 24 month period.

Yup, and I have done the same. Definitely not worth making them more rich
