Any new plans coming down the pipe soon?
I'm on the Unlimited Bronze 12 plan, missed the Unlimited Silver 25 by 1 day!
I received a brochure in the mail from Dishnetwork that they're offering 25Mbps  Unlimited data plans for $49.99 a month "not a promo it says" via Hughesnet..
So will we be getting better plans soon too??

I would assume not unless you are in one of the census designated locations that bid on in the FCC reverse auction.

Did you downgrade to Bronze from Silver, and Silver is no longer available?

The night before I signed up for service the Silver 25 Unlimited was available in My area/zip code.
the following day I signed up for service it was no longer available in my area so my choice left was the Bronze 12 unlimited...now all that is available are 3 liberty plans offering even less then I have now for more money.

Not necessarily. If the Liberty plan offers a free zone and you learn and understand how to use it, the Liberty plan is superior to an "unlimited" plan, especially the Bronze one.

Liberty plans are far superior to the Bronze and Silver plans for anyone who streams video not only because of the LNFZ's free data, but for the resolution that they provide, 1080P vs 320P or 480P.

I only see the Liberty plans (10, 20, 50) in my area as well. I never got any ViaSat 2 plans which is sad... I am assuming that I am in one of those areas ViaSat is keeping on ViaSat 1 and am just plain out of luck for any improvements in congestion, speed, data caps, etc...

VS1 was never intended to be shut down, it still has may years of life in it. What you are seeing, or not seeing with VS2 plans are a result of the antenna problems on the VS2 satellite. Many area have no VS2 coverage available and other areas have only limited coverage, and may have already been subscribed to the limits set by Viasat to prevent slow speeds during prime time.
