SCS Broadband – AcelaNet LLC
I was just contacted by SCS Broadband as a replacement for Viasat. This is a new option for me that has become available within the recent past.
I am trying to decide if I should switch. So do any of you have experience with SCS Broadband? It seems to be based in central Virginia. Are they another company that overpromises and underdelivers?
I am currently on Viasat’s beam 328 in south-central Virginia, which has been oversubscribed in the past. However, I have been satisfied with Viasat for the last year or two by adjusting my usage. I am on the Liberty 12 plan. The LNFZ is from 3:00 am until 6:00 am. I pay $50 per month and would have no cancellation fee. I have avoided streaming because I have to with this plan.
SCS Broadband works off a tower, which is 5.2 miles away. They charge a $200 installation fee but are responsible for any future equipment repairs. I assume latency will be normal with this technology since no satellite is involved.
They have several monthly plans. According to their advertisements, the least expensive cost $40 per month and delivers speeds “up to” 10 mbps. They claim to have no data caps and that congestion will not reduce the speeds. Their advertisement claims this plan is useful for basic streaming and gaming. The next higher plan costs $60 per month and the company claims this plan is useful for 4K streaming with “up to” 20 mbps.What would you do if you were me?
