Worst service ever. Internet speed is terrible. Speed is sloooow. 2gigs on my phone if lucky. Game systems dont work at all online. Downloading a video takes forever. Can't use on demand on cable .
Keeps buffering. If not for penalties would drop service. WORST SERVICE EVER!!!!!!!!

What are your other options?

What do you mean 2 gigs on your phone?

Did you ask about gaming before purchasing service?

What resolution does your plan support & what resolution are you attempting to download/stream?

The penalties are not that high if you have alternative forms of internet to switch to.

Can't use on demand on cable . 
If you have cable, why would you want to use ViaSat for your On Demand, or really ViaSat for anything?  Satellite internet can't compete with cable internet.

Well, I can see redundancy being an advantage with something like mobile service or even DSL, but cable?  Then again, I was just reading an article about how awful Cox's cable internet is, so maybe.

No matter how awful cable is, it isnt going to have high latency and I doubt it has buffering while streaming.
