The Liberty 25 plan from Viasat offers 12 Mbps download speeds and 25 MB of data usage. This outclasses competing offers in the price range by 5 MB, meaning you can use 5 MB more data before your plan gets slowed down. Like most satellite Internet plans currently on the market, Liberty 25 has a soft data cap — once you go past the data limit, your plan will be slowed down to 1–5 Mbps.
In some areas, Viasat has launched “unlimited” plans that offer higher cutoff points before you start getting throttled. In our opinion, the Liberty 25 plan is still a better choice for most customers. This is mainly because the “Viasat 2” unlimited plans still cut off data usage at 40–100 MB, which means that they’re still not an entirely viable choice for frequent streaming. If you can deal with 25 MB of data per month (and most small households that have a separate TV provider like Dish or DirecTV can easily), then the locked-in $75 price on Liberty 25 will save you a lot of money… to the tune of $25/month, or $300/year.
Viasat is currently knocking the price for Liberty 25 down to $50/ month for the first three months of a two year contract. Keep in mind that the price will rise to $75 after that, and remain at $75 for the length of your contract.Includes:
