How about a Beam Map that shows saturation?

I think it would be informative (and neat to look at--for me anyway) if Viasat could produce a beam map that shows saturation, e.g. Green beams would indicate non-busy beams, Yellow-sort of busy, Red-very busy, Black-totally saturated.

This could be updated on a periodic basis and we could all see the impact of Viasat 2 in near real time-- and one could be produced for both 1 and 2. In addition, it would demonstrate the honesty, integrity and transparency of Viasat.

Ah, I figure it won't happen (probably doesn't make good business sense), but I sure would be interested in seeing something like this nonetheless.

Honestly, I would have come back to Exede/Viasat a lot sooner had I know this information. I had been debating whether or not to sign up for a while when I heard about the Liberty 12 plan.

I agree, John. That would be interesting.
