use a proxy to bypass viasat's streaming restrictions. or if your router supports it use an ipv4/ipv6 tunnel to access netflix and youtube via ipv6.

I would suggest you purchase playon and record Netflix etc . in off peak time. I also pre-buffer as was suggested by someone on this site. Start your show and pause for a few minutes. That helps during peak times.........................................................................................................

How do you record Netflix, etc in off peak times?  I'm assuming to avoid the slowdown in speed so they can advertise the "unlimited" data

PlayOn PC or PlayOn Cloud. With PlayOn Cloud get 720p no matter the plan you have or the time of day.

Yea. Takes a long time to hit a link and start a download in a browser. Maybe 30 seconds.
