Do not get Viasat if you dont absolutely have to! I'd say more but, they're watching...

If living there, I assume one has cable, DSL, and wireless options.  These would be better to choose from.  Why consider satellite?

You'll never be a cordcutter with satellite internet.   Barring other options Viasat does well with Email, surf internet, paying Ebills and streaming iHeart radio but is not robust enough to stream TV or Netflix.

100 Mbps plan?  Are you on VS2?  All that's available for me is 12 Mbps.

@mferner, you're one of the tiny minority of Viasat subscribers that can "cut the cord". The vast majority cannot. Don't hold your breath though. In time, they'll probably screw you over too.
