Noah Friedkin|2018-11-10

I have several concerns about Viasat. 1. I was told that I had a locked price for the 2-year contract. I was told that payments could be temporarily stopped upon notification that I would be on summer vacation for two months. I was not told that, upon my return, Viasat could terminate the contracted plan that I subscribed to and switch me to higher cost plan. This what they did. 3. Whatever the plan, you are very likely to exhaust its high speed internet allotment quickly, at which point your speed will automatically be seriously degraded. 3. If you decide to discontinue Viasat at the end of your 2-year contract, then make sure that you terminate the service several days prior to your monthly payment date. You prepay for monthly service, and Viasat will not reimburse any portion of the prepaid month. I discontinued service the day before my monthly payment date, and at 12am the next day Viasat charged me for another month even though it was providing no services to me for the month. Given the above, my bottom line appraisal of Viasat is exceedingly negative. I'm happy that I am no longer dealing with this company.
