(Posted Feb 2019) Ok. Is Viasat trying to get rid of residential subscribers? Sure seems like it. I've used satellite internet for the past 11 years, back when it was called "Wildblue". All my neighbors are are UNHAPPY users of Hughesnet, so I had been telling them that Viasat was much better.....until the past couple of weeks. I found it very interesting that soon after your recent customer communications about speed-of-service "averaging" 25 Mbps, my speeds have suddenly slowed. It's like you've applied a speed "governor" to hold speeds to 18Mbps....always. Before your communication came out, I could do a speed test and occasionally get up to 45 Mbps very early in the morning (4:00am). Of course it would slow as the day went on and traffic increased. Now, at very early times....on weekends, even....I haven't gotten over the 18 Mbps. Yes, the weather is clear, and yes, I've done the plug/unplug routine. And no, I'm NOWHERE near my data limit. My plan allows 150 GB (I don't think you even offer that any more) and I rarely use over 25 GB per billing month. I'm even having trouble now using a streaming music service....."buffering". So, sadly, now I'm telling my neighbors that I guess I'm wrong about Viasat being a better service than Hughesnet. A shame.
