I can't believe it costs so much to cancel my viasat account. They are charging me $150.00 for early cancellation. I asked one of their techs to get their equiptment out of my yard and they said it would cost $90.00.

$15/month for each month you have left on your contract.


If you don't take the tria off they will charge you a service call to come do it for you.

You can avoid any de-installation fee by returning the modem, the power supply, the power cord and the Tria from the dish.  They will send you an equipment recovery kit so you can send these items back.

you can always cancel your method of payment if you don't mind it going on your credit report

I am pretty sure most people looking at a credit report know how bad internet providers can be and if it is the only bad mark won't give it a lot of weight.

Entities looking at a credit report aren't going to care about specifics.  All they are going to care about is the credit score and a report of non payment.  They aren't going to care about the reasons for it, nor what company it involved.
