I really do think they should have at least some form of roll-over data!

It would be nice. Here’s what is going to happen in just a few short months.

People like me who switched to an unlimited (or 150 GB) plan will determine the plans are a value or not a value. If ViaSat 2 doesn’t help eliminate congestion, the plans are pretty much not a value. If it does, the plans will be a successful.

Unlimited users will either be streaming to our hearts content or rolling back our plans to a smaller plan for web surfing and such.

So ViaSat has to ask themselves, do they want to keep me paying $150 or go back to my $50 plan?

Bandwidth is non transferable so, no you cannot sell yours - use it or lose it.
