Something weird is going on today. For the first time in probably a month, I have more than 2 Mbps download speed. I am sure this won’t last as apparently their throttling software is broken and I am sure they will fix it soon.

There is less congestion or maybe less subscribers on your beam today.  Possibly an improvement in the network.  Whatever the reason I hope it is not temporary and it only gets better.

Maybe all the people that recently fled Viasat have relieved congestion on your beam. Don't worry, pretty sure contractors are rolling trucks full of roadside signs advertising Viasat to your area and they are buying more ads for your local TV stations to broadcast as of this moment. Viasat should get your issue cleared up soon.

Don't jinx it by acknowledging it!  You just have to slightly notice, then look away and never say anything about it, lest it drops back to the 2Mbps levels.
