ViaSat-2 launched on June 1 and it'll take 6-67 months before it's placed into orbit position, tested, and becomes operational.

Y'all realize 67 months is 5 1/2 years? Don't think so.

Typo folks 6-7, not 67 ;) -  fat fingers! Six to seven... moderators have already stated late 2017, early 2018. Of course that should probably read "up to" 6-7 months ;)

I have the same issues, slow speeds and at night you might as well give up and I'm no where near my data limit. Tech support says there to much traffic and I have to wait for the new satellite to come on line before it gets better. Really! Not sure what I'm paying for.

We're currently expecting a early 2018 release once our testing and orbital slot is settled. Keep checking this blog for updates as we will periodically make announcements about testing/trials and when closer to time: plans
