Sounds like you just need to sign up for one of the unlimited plans and teach everyone how to manage their data.  

They can either have no high speed internet at all, or manage what they have.  

Here  is a suggestion, sign up and make sure the plan you select is Gold 50 or the Platinum plan.  This will automatically put you on Viasat 2.  This bird is brand new and not congested yet.

After a month or so, drop down to a Bronze or Silver plan.  You will still be on the latest satellite and will save a little money.

The Bronze and Silver plans limit video quality and this will help conserve your data as well.  They stream in 320p and 480p.  The video quality isn't HD, but it will help you conserve data and is certainly better than dialup.

The Gold and Platinum plans are for streaming HD video in 720p and 1080p.   Naturally these plans have better video, but will use your priority data faster.

People should have to take some sort of multiple choice test before they are allowed to sign up for satellite Internet.
