No, you did not have satellite internet at 50mbs 4 years ago.  Or even 4 minutes ago.

If that was true, we should ALL move back to Missouri.  Let me guess. He had DishTV and it was bundled with a ground ISP.

50Mbps sat internet four years ago?  Um...sure.  That must have been some sat internet, and unique to MO.  SMH.

Most likely a WISP. They are quite viable in the flat lands of the USA. They are line of sight only. However, not very useful in the hilly or mountainous parts of the country, as in Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania is not a "backward state", just very hilly.

Yep. I live a mile from a WISP repeater, but no chance of getting a signal because of the darn hill in between!

Nah. You first have to quote a piece of somebody's post. Then you have to attach some discrete article link, which may or may not be pertinent to the topic.

The Pros and Cons of Going Commando:

"Another underwear option is to wear no underwear at all. This can be fun and feel great in the right circumstances, but our experts advise proceeding with caution. “Going commando can be very sexy, but like everything else, there's a time and a place,” Masini says. “Commando is great if you’re going for a sexy evening with a predictable outcome. However, dancing the night away first is going to have a sweaty outcome, which is not ideal. Also, linen trousers or shorts are going to reveal a little too much of your commando profile. If you go commando, wear something that makes your underwear status your little secret revealed by choice, not visual impact.”

That guy's complain'n kind'a makes me think he just has it too good everywhere else in his life. 
His happiness depends on his Internet speed?

Willis McNeal...

You poor baby... your Internet just isn't fast enough.  That condition of "up to" speeds just didn't apply to you when you signed up and you thought it was only a worse-case thing, so no worries.  You have the Internet where you live.  Plenty of people out there don't have Internet at all because to them it is more important to eat at least every-other day.  You're a spoiled brat.  I used to call people like you an Idiot but my post kept getting removed by the Moderators, so I'm going to go with "Spoiled Brat" and see if it stays. 

YOU think You've got troubles?  Mister, I said you have it too good in your life.  Wanna see someone who doesn't give a rats-behind how fast their Internet goes?  Take a look HERE and then tell us how anything below Max-speed Internet just ruins your day.
 
Oh, and just for the record,  I do think you should be happy.

Wow, Judge and Jury, was THAT really necessary?  Do you go completely over the edge often, or just with this particular person?  

And you believe that by removing the word "idiot" your reply no longer constitutes a personal attack?  News flash....it still is, and there's absolutely no need for it.

Absolutely, and to be honest, I'm shocked that the mods let a post like that stand.  I realize that a few of us made smart remarks and such, but that's a flat out personal attack, and completely unjustified.  Just unreal.  He very much reminds me of someone on the old HughesNet board who eventually got banned.

@  GabeU

You haven't been around here long, have you?  That was nothing.

Yes, it was necessary, and it was a good thing- as long as he learned something from it.  Using the word 'idiot' actually has resulted in a total of 4 post out of about 11 being removed for it's use.  It all depends on what else I say with it.  Willis McNeal's rant here was not a direct blind-sided attack on Viasat so I went easy and showed him just how shallow he is rather than tearing him to shreds.  He thinks his less than Max speed is a real problem in his life.  I showed him one person who's life has a real problem, a problem so severe she's asking anybody that will to pray for her,  a sort of reality check for Willis.  His life isn't over because his Internet doesn't always go as fast as he wants it to, her life is over unless an absolute miracle happens.  I guess all this can also be called "count your blessings" and stop and consider how bad your problems really are and have a reference, not an attitude.  She's a good reference.

I've been around HERE for a while.  I've been around internet forums for much longer.  I've been around this earth for 45 years.  Completely going off the deep end on someone who complained about the service is on you, not him.

It wasn't Willis' shallowness you demonstrated.

You are not my mother, but that won't stop you from trying to act like you are.  Your spin won't change that Willis is a big baby.  Be a busy-body here if you like, but If you think what I had to say to him was over the top, you really haven't been here much.  I already said I went easy on him, and I did.  I put deserving people in check and I don't care who the bleeding heart liberals are that don't like that, especially you.  I don't buy that we can't say anything anymore that might offend somebody, maybe they need to be offended.  I don't go over the deep end, I go straight for the throat.  Willis only needed a tune-up, some need to be crushed and I go for it.  If you don't like it, don't click "like" on my post.  This is a forum, not a school of social decorum, and I don't have to please you in the slightest in what I say.  
 
When people show up here and state their troubles with their service, they get advised to contact viasat by email, but when they show up slamming viastat right from the start- they get trounced and that's the way it is.  Willis got a mild tune-up and you should quit pretending you run this place.  You'll have better results yelling at the neighbor with the barking dog.

I always get a chuckle when people say, "Viasat is only giving me 1 mbps during primetime.  This unusable internet has ruined my life."

I wish my life was as perfect as those people.

So, Brad, are posts like that from Judge and Jury okay on this forum?  Are there no rules here?  It's okay to personally attack folks here?

James Besser, I don't know where your comment went, but I fully agree with you.  There's no need for posts like that.  It's evident that the rules, if there are any, are very lax.  It's not only disrespectful to the person being targeted, but also anyone who uses the forum.  There should be at least a degree of maturity required of those who post on this forum, and again, respect for those utilizing it.  After all, a support forum should be a welcoming place, not a place that makes people think twice about asking a question because they fear that they may be attacked.

@GabeU:  "James Besser--Gab U going back with hughes net at the end of this month Pay the $30.00 my deal with  via sat  is over can not stand seeing that little person with his big mouth bashing people employees put up with him. Brad saw this did zip been going on with him bashing people So Brad see ya-"

Here is a POSSIBLE translation, can't be 100% sure!  "GabeU, I'm going back with Hughes.net at the end of this month. I'll pay the $30.00(?)  My deal with Viasat is over.  Can not stand seeing that little person with his big mouth bashing people. Employees put up with him. Brad saw this but did zip.  His bashing people is ongoing. So, Brad, I'll see ya"

That is, as close as I can figure, what James was saying!

Seems like those who complain about their internet being way too slow just get torn to shreds. Wouldn't it be easier to just bump up the speed a bit so that people get what they are paying for? I feel ya, Willis! Nobody could possibly be happy with these speeds.

Jason....

You haven't sent an email to viasatlistens@viasat.com, but you should.
Send the email, describe the problem, include your account number and contact information and then see how it gets handled.
 
Complaints are met with proper suggestions. Rants and accusations are handled differently.  Your other thread is well worded and if you send the email, you can expect good results.
