That is good news indeed.

I don't know exactly what one should say now...

Congratulations on seeing your system finally achieve the speed you've been paying for all this time?

You have been very patiently waiting for this.  I hope it becomes a regular and long lasting event.

Thanks it was just a one time thing, I dont get that during the day I get anywhere from 15-19 and of course in the evening when beam is congested much less! But even at 2:30 am Since I had this plan it would not go over 19mbps until last night! and right now as of 12:15 PM est my speed is 16.83 and upload is 3.63

Maybe your beam lightened up a bit, some people leaving early for the holiday? I'm glad you're seeing that. We are routinely working on fixing the traffic management of areas so hopefully this is long lasting. This will be the norm once ViaSat-2 takes some of the workload away.

Yes Probably so Brad refer to my above comment for what my speeds usually are. However last night for about 30 mins mydownload speed wasnt even 1 mbps and I reset the modem and my own router and it didnt help! so I reset it again and unplugged the cable going to the modem and that fixed it because I knew I was well over 150GB used and I did not think my speed was slowed that slow during congestion! I figure the download speed should at least be 5 mbps when your put behind others! Are they putting ppl that goes over data behind others yet? But anyway after I reset my speed speeds was 10 mbps and gradually got faster as people went to bed!
