The traffic of each subscriber is associated with a single spot beam. Viasat strives to load its system so that at any given time the traffic load across different subsets of the capacity available on a spot beam (each a “Channel”) within a given spot beam is roughly comparable, except subscribers who have high-data threshold service plans may be grouped in a Channel together with other like subscribers. Available capacity within any given spot beam or Channel is largely fixed; subscribers assigned to a Channel share the available bandwidth in that Channel.
