Connecting your receiver to the internet would be a very bad idea in many cases.  The receiver will also download content without  you doing anything.  Your data threshold can be used up very quickly.  Viasat doesn't work well for a lot of streaming video.  Many, or most plans have a video limiter, limiting the resolution, some streaming starts at dvd quality (even lower).  A lot depends on your location and how congested the service is there.

UNLESS you live in a rare high capacity spot beam (since it's not public where they are, I'll use that term).  Performance -may- be better then.  No doubt that one particular person may be commenting about that at some point.  Their service experience is not "typical", and does not apply to everyone (fact).
