They lie, They won't be around long. Elon Musk is in the process of sending 1000's of satellites into orbit to blanket the earth with gigabit internet so the whole world will have high speed internet. He already started launching them. I would say within a year or two and these people (viasat) will go the way of AOL, Gone. So they have to hurry and steal all the money they can while the getting's good. A market summary shows their stocks dropping daily, today so far, down 3.09 dollars, (4.64%) with that being said, I expect their service to continue to get worse. Here's an idea, give people what they pay for and they will tell their friends and the company will grow exponentially, lie to them and watch them tell their friends and your stocks drop. Everything is a fast buck these days, get your money and run. No morals.

LEO sat internet isn't going to cause GEO sat internet service to go anywhere.  Viasat and its direct competition will be doing just fine.

Have you gone over your priority data? If so then you will be slowed, especially during prime time. You will need to adjust your data usage while still on priority to keep good speeds. I have the Bronze Unlimited 12 and it's been working fine for me.

If you are that slow while still on priority, then I suggest you send an email to viasatlistens@viasat.com.

Jeez.  The three 12Mbps unlimited plans are what I have showing for me.  I think I'll stick with what I have.  81Kbps?  Just unreal.
