I heard the new equipment comes with a can of Dinty Moore beef stew. That alone should be enough of a reason to switch to Viasat 2.

IF so then... ill be just staying onto VIASAT-1 :3 and so on :3 cause imma pretty happy with my speeds of being like... 14-25mbps :3 (execpt during primetime it usually goes down to like... 5-10mbps sometimes :3 and i can still stream but some buffering but i get mad at the people who are using the internet and sometimes i wished i can just kick those people off the entire beam and its all mine... i even said that to a rep when i called and i laughed they laughed also XD  )
