Like Stephen, I think I will have to post tests all the time, to show how bad Viasat's performance has gotten for me.


This is at 5:30pm!!!

AT&T dsl was never this fast for me. I love my Liberty 12 plan with speeds up to 12 mbps.

I never was much of a SRV fan, but he could play, that's for sure.  Along those same lines, George Thorogood was/is pretty good, too.  From what I understand his playing during his concerts is phenomenal.

Stevie Ray Vaughan was a guitar genius. If Hendrix had been alive during that time he probably would have taken classes from him.

aw man I missed a pretty good conversation here, normally I phase in and out on the ongoing speed threads. Big time Metallica fan in the office. Got a Papa Het figure on my monitor. Really liked the Hardwired Tour (caught the stadium legs...that tour is still going. Crazy) Iron Maiden is on my bucket list and the tour their bringing this summer is a greatest hits tour with an awesome stage set (a spitfire during Aces High, a really cool Cathedral set, Bruce Dikenson with flame throwers during Flight of Icarus) but it's not coming here but I found a multicam bootleg of the show in Paris on YouTube and it looked awesome

You can't go wrong with Maiden!  And Bruce's voice?  OMG!  He may not be able to hit the notes quite as high as he used to, but boy he can still sure belt it out like no other.  One of the best metal bands ever, for sure.  And, of course, they've got Eddie.  :)

I'll have to wait till the net is better before that will load Jab. You want to know what airports are near me or something else?

Not needed...I suspect Viasat is transferring more bandwidth over to commercial aircraft.

Prime time was a bit sluggish over the weekend even on priority data.

It is amazing the variance in speed showing up now, even for the same account.

Yea.  My tower isn't connected to fiber and I don't have my Yagi antenna up and running yet.

Still running at 5GB+ at 9pm during primetime.


Obviously something isn't working right.  I am sure Viasat engineers will correct the error and we will get below 500kbps speeds again.

Not bad for prime time on Liberty pass. Twice as fast as my DSL was.

Like Stephen says, nothing makes any sense.  A few of us have gotten very good speeds tonight.  I am seeing better speeds than I have seen in a long, long time. 


Now that speed test above at 0.08, something isn't right for the ping to be THAT high.  I wonder if that is a misaligned dish?

I haven't tried mobile and jetpack tests yet. I don't have my unlimited jetpack up and running yet so limited on how much testing I can do right now.

@Bradley...mobile vs Jetpack

Using a $400.00 signal booster...DLs, mobile some 5Mbps faster..ULs, mobile some 3Mbps faster...but testing just done, Jetpack speed is via WiFi to desktop computer.

When Jetpack is teethed to desktop computer, DLs are similar.  Regardless, speeds are good using either method.

I haven't checked mobile speeds near this tower on current plan.

Thanks. I wondered if it would somehow have a different algorithm.

Unlimited Prepaid Data ($70) is not supposed to be throttled down, unless a tower is congested.  Hearsay suggests VZW is wanting their system tested to get kinks out of it before 5G is rolled out en masse.  5G is a new frontier, with "extreme" speeds, and all of these slow/fast bits must be in sync.  Engineers need to work out the kinks.

Even when Exede service was offered, it took them a year or so to work out their engineered quirks.

My speed on my jetpack are much faster then on my phone I have iphone so its not a cheap phone. While doing research before I got it they said it would get better signal and be faster because of just using the 4G signal and not having to also do the signal for phone calls.

My speeds seem to be ok from install on the 2nd of this month. So far so good.  I have the Unlimited Gold 50 plan  on Viasat 2. Here are two screen shots...

They make sure to at words like "median" and typically.

J & J and Duku were two of Viasat's fan boys. Even Stephen's confidence has wavered.

Over a year ago I would have recommended Viasat also. But unless you are in one of their high density beam areas, I would recommend something else. How do you know if a high density beam? If you can get 50 or 100Mbps, and want to pay $150+/month, I think you will like it!

I left AT&T because I didn’t like their business practices. It’s already starting to feel like AT&T owns Viasat.

@ Stephen Rice

After Viasat bought Wildblue, I perceived VS's marketing folks used binoculars and watched the Wireless Carriers prices, for a number of years....then jumped on the variable pricing bandwagon, with no concern with what the market can afford, at least in the beam I use.  Then later have backed down on $100.00 basic plan in some beams.

I'm wondering what pricing is for those who come under Connect America Funding, in AL, AZ, CA, CO, FL, GA, ID, KY, LA, ME, MS, MT, NM, OR, PA, UT, WA, WI, WY, and WV.

August 29, 2018 Viasat will receive $122.5 million in U.S. federal subsidies through the Connect America Fund, and is tasked with providing internet access to more sites than any of the other funding recipients

I mean Viasat did have a map on its twitter feed about a year ago that showed 25Mbps across the continental United States.

My speeds while on Liberty pass have improved and working as intended now. Just want to be fair and honest in my tests as of late. I can deal with the speeds I get now and for the price I can't let it go, I have a few other options for internet but for more money than I pay now with Viasat. 

 Been doing some repairs around the house so need all the money I can save atm. The prices on Lumber is not like I remember a few years ago! lol
