It’s true — Viasat has launched unlimited data Viasat Internet plans for the first time ever! We think unlimited data plans are the future of satellite internet for everyone. While we’ve launched unlimited service plans in select areas for now, we’re planning to offer these types of service plans in more areas across the U.S. and beyond in the very near future.
Anything you routinely use the internet for. Banking. Shopping. Homework. Streaming music and video. Downloading files. Social media. News, sports, weather. Everything you love – more of it.
Viasat Internet is a great choice for people who don’t have cable where they live. It will be an upgrade for your family if you’ve been stuck with slow DSL or a local wireless service.
In some areas, we’re offering three types of unlimited data plans. The main differences between these plans are speed and video streaming quality. Here are the details:
GOOD FOR: Smaller households that don’t use many connected devices; people who mostly tend to stream videos on their phone or tablet. Think more YouTube than Netflix.
NOT IDEAL FOR: Households that stream video on large-screen TVs; people who stream most of their shows or cord cutters who value high definition quality; households with more than a few connected devices running at the same time.
GOOD FOR: Families with many connected devices; people who don’t mind watching shows in DVD quality and tend to watch on laptops, tablets, or small TVs.
NOT IDEAL FOR: Film buffs who prefer their shows in HD quality.
GOOD FOR: Everyone! Families with many connected devices; people who want the best quality regardless of the device they use; people who watch video on big-screen TVs.
NOT IDEAL FOR: People who want to watch shows in 4K definition.

We recommend picking the service plan that best fits your video viewing habits, desired speed and budget. You can always upgrade using your account portal. There’s never a fee to change service plans, and your upgraded service will be available within a matter of minutes.
No. There’s no need for a Free Zone with unlimited data plans. The Free Zone was created to give additional data to our customers on our older plans during the wee hours. With our new unlimited data plans, you don’t have to wait until 3 a.m. to download files.
The unlimited data plans launched September 28, 2017. Just enter your Zip code at Exede.com to see what service plans are available in your area. Current customers can upgrade their service plans (where available) at your account. Check out this article on more information about changing service plans.
Unlimited data plans are not offered everywhere yet. If you don’t see these service plans available in your area, check back in a few months. More new service plans will be launched in 2018.
On an unlimited data plan, there are no limits to how much data you can use during your monthly billing cycle. However, if you use more than 150 GB of data and the network is congested, Viasat may prioritize your data behind other customers.
When the network is not busy, nothing will happen to your service speeds. When the network is busy, Viasat may prioritize your data behind other customers, which will result in slower speeds. Web pages and videos may respond and load more slowly than during periods of non-congestion.
No. If you used more than 150 GB of data on a Freedom plan, your speeds were slowed all day, every day until the end of your monthly billing period. On an unlimited data plan, your speeds remain normal after 150 GB of usage. Instead, when the network is busy, we may prioritize your unlimited plan data behind other customers after 150 GB of data usage, resulting in slower speeds.
