Yes, first new plan that is now available here also.  But not hardly going to bite I'm enjoying care free, any time updates, downloads during the daytime, teach my classes and letting the grand kids do their thing.

I've had the Silver 150 Gig for almost 3 months and it lets the whole family use the internet without having to manage every bit and byte.

I think Visat waited too long to offer anything else in this area and this has given users time to test and settle in.  I think they want to get rid of us that are on any 150 Gig plan, not happening here, i've had 3 months to experiment and it works. 

Between you and me, i don't think even with V2 we are going to see any better plans, new offerings have less data, that was always my concern.

Interesting... what's your Zip Code again, Ricky? Just curious as to what might be showing for new customers.

I am also completely baffled on this.  A person on the Silver Plan posted a short while ago that she was getting over 3Mbs streaming.  That is Gold Plan territory.  So it seems there is no standard streaming rate for the unlimited plans.  Gold can be Silver and Silver can be Gold.

Same here. Only 12 mpbs plans offered. I have Freedom 150 12 Mpbs $100. Only 2 new plans available, both UP TO 12 Mpbs, Unlimited (up to 100GB) for $145 and 12GB for $50. On this overloaded beam, I have been waiting for years, and the past 6 months been told our socks will be blown off with the new plans/speeds. I do like my 150GB, which I never get close to, but would love to see faster speeds since I telework. Also, definite slow down from 5pm on (east coast) continues.
