I received an email from Viasat in January like many others. It does not appear to say that my 12mps speed would drop to less than 1mps. It appeared to say that I could keep my current plan.
I have never exceeded the 150GB. Why the punishment?

You are lucky. My speed was dropping to 300kbps (or less) during primetime.

It's not punishment. They just want you off the 150GB priority plan.

Couldn't get past 80gb last month on my 150g account. Had to start downloading Wikipedia all over again this month. Fingers crossed I can finish the download this month. Support wants me to upgrade to a 50g account for only $55 more per month what a deal!

Maybe they will credit us for past slow service, not even likely but that would be the right thing, that is if Viasat considered customer service at all as a priority. My question is if we go to the almost 50% more expensive service will they at some point extort (: to obtain from a person by force, intimidation, or undue or illegal power) us yet again?

How large is the current Wikipedia dump?
