check the contract  you signed   see how long it is.  If  you cancel  there  is usually a charge  to cancel   and that charge may  be worth it instead of keep paying

He probably isn't a subscriber.  He just came here to tell us we are all stupid.

Something is overpriced ONLY when there is a competitor offering a lower price for a similar or better product. Actually what YOU are paying is overpriced compared to what a buddy of mine is paying....29.99 for 70mbps service with no contract. 

If you live in an area where 75mg (sic) service isn't available for $45 then Viasat starts looking pretty good compared to what Verizon charges.

Tuesday is the new Saturday!

Somehow these weekends seem to have expanded themselves to any day of the week.  Times have changed.

Satellite internet is the most expensive internet, per capita, to provide and offer.

You are getting ripped off if you are paying $45 a month for internet. I get internet access for free at the library.

I use a 24/7 McDonald's with free WiFi and my waistline is starting to make them suspect I'm up to something with the free soda refills...

My library has free WiFi 24/7. Al one needs to do is sit outside when they are closed on the benches provided. They allow one to sign on using your Google or FB sign ins.

Of course no refreshments are provided.

Unfortunately when I get home Viasat penalizes me on the Liberty Plan. Says so right there in the Data Allowance Policy:
In addition, heavier users of Liberty Pass may experience slower speeds than lighter users.
I'm outraged that Viasat discriminates against those of us who are weight-challenged. There ought to be a law against that... but apparently Net Neutrality permits it.

The airlines charge more for heavier users. Sometimes you need to pay for two seats.

Nobody is holding a gun to our heads making us sign up for this.  If you have a better and/or cheaper alternative then go for it.  Satellite Internet is very expensive because of the physical satellite that costs hundreds of millions of dollars not to mention the tens of millions to get the thing into orbit and then the expenses of the huge satellite dishes and equipment at the uplink facilities.  Terrestrial Internet has none of those expenses involved so they can be quicker and cheaper.  Most of us have it because it's a trade off because of where we choose to live.  If you don't like the price then don't get it...simple as that.

I'm not sure what all the debate here is - 75 mg for $45 is a steal... take it and don't look back - pay the ETF!

It's already been determined here that a GB weighs somewhere between 300 and 700 femtograms - 75 milligrams would be a heck of a lot GBs at least a 107 trillion GBs by my calculation - virtually unlimited ;)

That equals $272,400 for one pound, which will buy a small house.
Ther are 454 grams in a pound and there are 1000 mg in a gram.
Do the math.

Indeed do the math:

1 fg = 0.000 000 000 000 001 gram

I only want 75 mg and 107 trillion GBs (I'm not greedy) - I never use a pound of them in a month  at 256 kbps on hitting Liberty pass at 12 GB.

P.S.Then I've still got $272,355 left over for my monthly house payment.
