Viasat Internet:
Funny about the data usage yesterday it said i used 258 gigs and this morning it says i have used 150 gigs Just wish these people would get it together and give us what we pay for and stop trying to pull the wool over us

From what I can remember about the Viasat usage meter, it will top out on the maximum number of the plan you have. Therefore on the 150 GB plans, the maximum reading will show as 150 GB, and not the amount you have used if you are over the priority data limit.

I have a 150 plan and last month, last few days actually showed 154.8 used.

Started trying to watch some DTV on demand.

I had to work to use that much data.

Normal internet browsing, research, even my on line teaching, 7 computers updating, two iphones updating, probably 85 or 90 GB would do.

Used to have cable internet and my kids play online games,watch utube videos and only once did we ever go over 300gb now with viasat by the middle of the month we r over 200 every month and we r not on the internet a quarter as much and cant get over 15 megs fast 90% of the time really sucks hardly can watch hulu,or netflix most of the time

2mbs is more than enough to stream with.  Again, the unlimited plans are lower than that as is the Data Opto-throttle that other plans can switch on and off.  Other issues can affect streaming from having the resolution set too high on Netflix to your streaming device not having enough memory to help with buffering.
