For $100 per month(+rental fees) -- 12Mbps/50Gb or 25Mbps/Unlimited Gb
Is there something I'm not seeing in this?
Liberty 50 allows you to turn the Video Data Extender OFF and, thus stream HD video as long as you have Priority data. Unlimited Silver does not allow you to turn the Video Data Extender off, it is ALWAYS ON, No video over 480p resolution will stream, it must buffer and not all sights allow you to buffer a full TV show or movie before pushing play. Basically on Silver, you can't watch HD video, DVD quality or lower only.
If you go out and an look at new service, the $100 for unlimited is a 3 month promo. My guess is that the list above is also promo and after 3 month it goes back up to $150. It dosn't say it anywhere, but I don't trust it as of today and I personally wouldn't do it until I actually talked to someone at Customer Service.
We got the same offer on our beam last week. I considered the issue of 480p since we have a 70” high def tv and I won’t watch fuzzy buffering programs. On the other hand, abiltity to watch Netflix with 50 g while possible, was very limited at 1 g per hour. Nevertheless , I can only imagine what it will be like not worrying about using our data and asking guests to be considerate of our limited WiFi! We signed up immediately. Now we are waiting for the modems to come in. They are back ordered for at least a month! This is potentially a life changer and I can’t wait! No more trips to the library to use public WiFi! Thank you via sat.
Yeah, from the looks of the "New plans," if this is what it looks like with the new satellite, we wasted our money waiting for Viasat II. We already pay about $70/mo, and we aren't paying more than that. And we aren't switching to a plan where the free zone is 3 AM. So it looks like Viasat II is a DOWNGRADE.
