When I bought this system I was told the data would be unlimited January 1st at no extra charge. I really don’t think that is going to happen. Right now after my data is used (less than a week) it is so slow it is worthless (.2 mbs). What are your thoughts. Should I just shut it off now. I still have my DSL that works much better.

Well assuming your DSL has a lot higher data cap or is actually unlimited i would question why you got satellite in the first place. Also, lol no unlimited is never the unlimited that we want, it is only technically unlimited because you can still theoretically do stuff online though at far lower speeds. As far as i know, there is no reason for January 1st to make a difference in this, the new satellite won't be operational until late January/early February, so it can't be that.    Basically, if your DSL meets your needs then 1: idk why you got satellite and 2: You should just stick with it.

Hi Keith. Unless you know a dealer in the know, we really don't know when or if plans will appear on certain days. Plans and availability will vary by location. If you are referring to Viasat 2 launch that will happen shortly after the new year (most likely February) but I would recommend checking routinely for plan availability (we won't ever automatically switch anyone to a new plan...far more would be upset had we done that than the other way around).

Brad knows I would show up at his house with a live chicken and a weed eater if he took my Liberty 12 plan away.
