A 50% failure in proper antenna deployment is not a good thing. Then Viasat announces "unlimited" plans with less priority data than before.

Soooo....let the countdown begin on when Viasat-3 will launch.

RE: failure.... antenna

I think issue is related to two beams having irregular beam-pattern...article noted they need equipment on the ground (more users) to determine specifics.

Something like a beam's reflector (cone shape) is deformed...I would assume their van crossed US, and stopped around beam's boresight, and a few other outer locations.

Well I knew that Viasat -2 was just stop gap solution for now. And when Viasat - 3 is launch and up in functioning properly Viasat will hopefully offer better speed improvements and higher priority data options.

Viasat better hurry up and let us know what plans we can expect with Viasat 3.

Meanwhile, I will keep bragging about my Liberty 12 plan.
