ViaSat seems to have come through!  This is pretty cool.
As of this morning my d/l speeds are very good...and what I would expect for a "12 mb service" - let's see how it holds up during the day but for now, life is back to good and thank you developers and the NOC (if this speed continues).

O.K.  Everyone put their popcorn away....  ( well, maybe we better not just yet.  I get the feeling if he runs another speed test and it drops a fraction he will be on his rant again.  Orville Redenbacher has nothing to worry about with this guy!

Call me crazy, but it's almost like it has something to do with the day and time of day for some reason. I think the developers and NOC only work mornings on the weekends.

And then comes evening, and the speeds just don't hold up. What a surprise.

Glad that I did stock up on my beer and popcorn. 

More good entertainment to follow.

Just another comment from a Real Viasat Troll.

Sometimes you just have to wonder.

He's not complaining about streaming. He's using the Google (M-Lab) speed test which at least for me has always proven to be consistent with testmy.net or others - except for the bogus latency statistic. He's already been educated on the Fast.com test and the detected video throttling.

I hate complaints that span threads - but he had no choice ;)

The real question is why is Viasat-2 congested already if one believes the NRTC explanation? Has it been a resounding success? It's going to be a bumpy ride to Viasat-3, infinity and beyond if that's the case - order more popcorn!
