Yeah I've had viasat for less than 2 weeks and I can't believe how awful it is. Didn't realize that I'd be paying for three days of internet. So my question is how much is it going to cost to get out of this lions trap of a two year contract?

P.S. just to keep the streak of vague/nonsensical Suspicious Minds references going...

Viasat is a trap. You can't walk out...

Hello Frosty, If you are having issues with your internet service, please send an email to viasatlistens@viasat.com  and include your account and contact information.

If you choose to disconnect, it is $15.00 for each month remaining on your contract.

"Didn't realize that I'd be paying for three days of internet."

Sounds like Frosty used all of their Priority Data in three days.

Yes.  We can never go back to "limited" data.  The genie has left the bottle....

Yes, but reading comprehension is another matter altogether ;)

You are paying for a connection to the net and a data package with which to use with that connection.  How you use your data is up to you.  If you blow through your priority data in three days that's your choice.  If you ration your priority data so that it lasts the entire month that, too, is your choice.  

So, you aren't paying for three days of internet.
