The only way I'm willing to upgrade to the unlimited gold plan and pay $150 - $200 a month is if it will provide sufficient speed and data for us to stream all our media and eliminate my Directv bill. I'm very skeptical this will be possible with the 100 GB de-prioritized limit. If we streamed all of our media I'm thinking we would blow by that limit in no time. I would love to have the opportunity to have a 2 month test trial of the unlimited gold plan so I could see if it would work for my household, but of course viasat shot that down and said I would have to sign a 2 year contract. There's no way I want to get stuck in a 2 year $200 a month contract for something that I have doubts will be worth it. So, I'm turning to the masses to see what you think. We have 3 tv's in our house that we would stream things like Netflix on, a laptop for some occasional work, we don't do any serious gaming, and our phones have unlimited data so we could keep the wifi turned off on them. Do you think the Unlimited Gold Plan would be able to serve us well enough that we wouldn't have any speed or data issues while streaming all the video we want?

I don't care what anybody tells you....satellite internet is NOT the avenue to use if you want to "cut the cord". I've had customers try it.
