Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Dike
They were great for about 18 months
I live out in the country where there haven't been any good options for internet service. That was until about 18 months ago when I signed up for Viasat (formerly Exede) for the second time after having nothing but problems with my wireless carrier's internet service. I bought the "Unlimited Silver 25" plan for $150/month + taxes and everything was great. I was promised that I wouldn't be throttled until I used up 150 GB of data, which I never did. Everything stayed great until a couple of weeks ago when they changed their terms of service so that people with the "grandfathered unlimited" plans like the one I had got to go back of the line whenever there was any network congestion, i.e., anytime in the evening or on weekends. Now I get maybe 2 Mbps at best on evenings or weekends, rather than the up to 25 Mbps I was getting before. I understand that they need to make money, but punishing their old customers so they "upgrade" to plans with lower caps and higher prices is really not a good way to do business. Now it's back to looking for an alternative...
