Hi Katina, You will be billed for first month plus the
prorated month as you stated. The installation fee, if it was charged,
will be paid when the service is installed. What is needed for you will depend
on the plan you chose. Send your account information to
and we can give you an estimate.

Diana, Please correct me if I am wrong but I have been telling customers that the up-front fee including any pre-paid lease comes out when the account is built and that the first months fee plus a maximum of 3 days pro-rated comes out the day the account is provisioned.

Hi Jim, Yes, you are correct, the installation fee is paid when the account is built. I'm sorry I didn’t explain that correctly or clearly! 

When the account is built, we also put a payment method on file. 
Please make sure you give us the one you want ViaSat to take payment with.  It will be used to pay your bill within 1- 4 days after your account is installed.
