If offered, it's in the disclaimers document over at the legal documents:

Upfront $300 nonrefundable payment, and you may cancel service at any time without an early termination fee.

Still requires equipment lease and equipment to be returned.

The No Long Term Contract option requires a $300.00 upfront fee to cover the cost of installation.

It is shown on the page after you enter your zip code.

Thanks for the info.  After reading through the data, it looks like this option only applies to the residential plan series and not the business plan series.

You basically save $60 off early termination fees, but that would be if you dropped Viasat in the first 4 months. After that, it can cost you money.

Not sure it is worth it. But if it makes you feel better by saying you have no early termination fees, have at it.

Honestly, if you need a business plan, I'd go for the contract. Yes that locks you in for two years BUT there is nothing saying you cannot reduce your service during that time. Double check with Viasat but, I believe you could even go to the Business redundancy plan and, minimize the cost, if you were not pleased with or, no longer needed the service after a few months, just to complete the 24 month contract.

Yeah ViaSat internet is garbage used up our data in 4 days after paying $300. Then they had the nerve to send another bill 5 days later for $123. Scam and they're crooks.

How is it Viasat's fault you burned through your data in 4 days?
