huh?  When you buy something the bill will be high?  What does that mean and how can I get you as a customer for whatever I'm selling because all the rest of my customers would sue me if I offered something at a contract price but billed them higher.  I need a lot more customers like you.

I'm a click away from switching to Liberty 50 but I need to see more about this billing issue.  There's not supposed to be any additional charges when switching plans.

You pay in advance. When you change something that makes your bill go up, you also pay the difference between the two amounts to catch up to the date your paid up to. 

It works the same way in reverse if your bill goes down, you get more than the difference back on the next bill.

Hi 50mary52, Yes, your first bill is higher because you pay in advance for 1 month and the current month  from your install date.  If you would additional information, please send an email to exedelistens@viasat.com or view information from our article that explains the bill;

In addition, you need to account for the modem lease fee and any applicable local taxes.

so I had a question on this, why if a person gets service disconnected they don't get an extra month that was paid in advanced or the money back for that month?
