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!!!

And the ads say high speed reliable internet from Viasat, think they need to change that add to guaranteed slow speeds from Viasat with a chance of high speed. Only time I have good speeds now is free zone but soon as 6am hits it's 0.25 or under and then after 6pm it gets the hard hit with ping over 1k with little to no upload or download. I can understand when I am in Liberty pass after 6pm to be bad but not after 6am. Had to use my cell data to just pay bills today at 1pm cause speeds on Viasat was so slow.

A lot of discussion on speeds and leaving Viasat because of the recent unilateral plan changes.


It seems like a number of customers are finding the unlimited wireless mifi plans a reasonable alternative. This of course was triggered by the plan changes. If Viasat left well enough alone, this wouldn't have happened. Maybe they want to get customers off the "unlimited" and Freedom plans, IDK, but how often does a company try to drive subscribers away. Weird.


I have looked at the wireless alternative myself. I already have a mifi device. Just not "unlimited". Unfortuantely, I can't financially justify it unless I drop Viasat, and even then I would only save about $30/month. While I would love to test the unlimited wireless plan, I just dont think it will work for me. Oh well. There is always Hughesnet.


Shout out to Andy. Hope you are doing well with your testing on alternatives!

@Vet...test the unlimited wireless plan

Ah, they have problems too:
Disconnect / no internet after ~925 MB combined DL/UL

But, one solution: "As recommended by ddennis and VZW support I went to a corporate store today and had them disconnect/reconnect the mifi account (w a new SIM)."
