Good Afternoon,

I wanted to post another review. I have been seeing speeds as high as 60MBps on gold 30 on VS1. 

So far the service is working correctly depending on the time of day. 

Thanks again for being able to replace my crap DSL service.

My next question is. What happens to the customers who can't move to VS2 or 3 when VS1 closes and gets retired? I have not seen anything for VS2 service in my area yet. Worried would be forced to switch to another ISP.

Probably bad. They would still launch the satellite and provide the tech, but there would be another middle man selling and servicing. I mean the NRTC already is a reseller. Dish Net was at one time too. Maybe still is.

So yea. Doesn't sound like a lot of Viasat users in your beam, so you get good speeds.
