Lies from the start

Looking online for news regarding all the issues of VS2, especially after the unlimited plans have been terminated and many areas have stopped accepting new clients and found this gem from December 5th 2017. An outright lie. Specifically read about the antennas, reflectors and radiators. This must border on being illegal. Investors were told lies from the start. For your own reading:

ViaSat announced the ViaSat 2 satellite has successfully arrived in Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) at 69.9 west longitude, and has transitioned into orbit normal mode (Earth pointing) with its reflector and radiator deployments now complete. The company also confirmed the satellite has commenced in-orbit testing, including the key milestone of the first end-to-end system test, with the ViaSat 2 satellite transmitting and receiving data to and from the new ViaSat ground segment.

Antenna deployment complete???? Really??? How long did they think they could deceive clients and investors???

I was not deceived or lied to.  That article states "..... the satellite has commenced in-orbit testing, including the key milestone of the first end-to-end system test."  The key word there is commenced. They started to test and discovered problems in those test.  To accuse Viasat of lying is unfounded.

It also says “complete”. Guess it will be up to the lawyers interpretation.

That is probably the best comment from Jab so far.  Sarcasm at it's best.  That I'm sure was for all the conspiracy nuts on here.

How can you tell if Jab is serious or not?  Inquiring minds want to know.

RE: "How can you tell....Inquiring minds want to know.

When the "rest of this story" is not publicly released.

Otherwise, ask those on VS-2 to post their results of
