I play a game called secondlife, I am mostly homebound and I use my computer for everything, I was wondering what the best plan would be, I am currently on liberty 50 but was wondering if it would be a good idea to go unlimited?

Cameron, that all depends on how much data you are planning to use each month. If you are going over your 50 GB and still have time left before your reset, it might be wise to upgrade to an unlimited plan. If you enjoy watching movies or TV programs then you need to understand that the unlimited plans have different video qualities associated with them, with reduced resolution, which may cause your viewing on a larger screen TV not to your liking.

I haven't heard that games name in a long time but this week between this post and a NPR story I realize it's still a very active online game.

I would safely assume that the 50 *might* be OK but I have to agree with Steve 100% on this. If you are almost always hitting your data limit and that's your primary usage Unlimited might be a good move but like he suggested, I'd want you to review the resolution restrictions on those plans to see if it works for your purposes. If you'd like you can contact us at viasatlistens@viasat.com or call 855-463-9333 to review the current and prior month's usage to make a better decision.
