so I think we all know that regardless of the download speed ie.. 25 mbps that Viasat throttles or limits the video stream  to its " optimized speed " so  just say 5 mbps on a gold plan , is that per account or per stream ?  in other words if i was getting 25 mbps and started a video stream at 5 mbps (720)  and then had another going in same house /same account /same time would it cut that stream in half or give me 2 separate streams at the optimized speed

Should be per stream. But the more streaming, the more your account will slow down in general.
