I am on Liberty Pass and, off peak hours, it's working great, as it should. I do expect to see a slowdown to perhaps 7-10 Mbps during peak hours, based on what I know of my beam.

"If you live out of town and, work a local job here, 50.00 is A LOT of money." I think a lot of folks are in that situation. Not sure if it's worse in rural areas or not. I'm a firm believer that everyone should have affordable internet. Kinda like health insurance but certainly not that critical. I think the more informed we are the better are our chances of improving our society.

I think in a few months we're going to make you happy Mike. We launched a new satellite this summer and are just now able to test some of the capabilities but we're basically doubling our ENTIRE bandwidth with it. As a result we'll move a few people onto it to clear up some bandwidth and in return we're going to have quite robust data plans available as the norm (unlike right now where the best we offer in most areas is 50GB).

Brad, I'll happily move to VS2 - even if I have to sign on for another 2 years :P If it's not too bad, I might even pay the service call to move but, if you just need volunteers, well I can be a guinea pig. :P

I'm happy with what I currently have.  My only real complaint is latency, but it would take a magical fairy to make that go away.

Unless VS2 has magically fairies up there, I'm staying on VS1.  Those of us that stay on VS1 and are on good beams are just going to get even better service than we already have.

I just want more data. 50 GB really doesn't cut it for my family but, we make do with that - beats nothing.
