So, while this is marked a problem that is merely because it is the closest thing to what it could be appropriately marked as out of the 4 options, I understand very well why this is this way lol. 

Speeds after using a little over 200GB (http://prntscr.com/hhitju) have been about the same as I got during Prime Time while on Liberty 10, which isn't fun obviously, but I suppose 200GB is the cut off point for people on my beam lol.

For better accuracy here's one using a 12MB download size: http://testmy.net/9AJ2Tq4XC.png

So, for those who might be curious about what speeds you *might* be able to expect when over the 150GB threshold, here ya go.  Clearly this is not a broad, will affect everyone sort of thing obviously it depends on beam stuff and blah blah blah.  Anyways, yet again I'm not really complaining, while it does suck that it is about the same as before right now I understand with the new plans people have probably flooded it even more, so prime time now is far worse than pre-unlimited plans prime time.  The new satellite should alleviate this a good deal, so I'm still looking forward to that a lot lol.

Agree.  The only reason I would upgrade to an "unlimited" plan and be throttled down to 480 or 720p is to stream more during the month.  Being cut off of streaming after 150gigs is no better than the Freedom plan.  This needs to improve or there will be a lot of  upset people.
