@troutman Yes, cost remains a real issue. But Viasat & Hughes have never been inexpensive either, and they’re inferior services in so many ways. The FCC Affordable Connectivity Program can also be leveraged, for a $30-$75/mo discount.

@CanadaKaz Mostly accurate. It usually comes down to Fleet x Wifi tech.
Viasat > GoGo 2Ku > GoGo ATG-4
Delta's fleet is a mix of 2Ku or viasat. Large swaths of other major carriers are still on old tech.

Apparently at the start of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, Russia took out ViaSat's internet coverage in the region with an exploit targeting ViaSat modems. The UA military was contracting ViaSat for mobile internet service and when that went down, they turned to SpaceX's Starlink.

The Viasat outage remains the most publicly visible cyberattack carried out since Russia invaded Ukraine, in part because the hack had immediate knock-on consequences for satellite internet users across Europe and because the crippled modems often had to be replaced manually.

Never use Viasat Internet! They have ****ty service. They don't have enough subcontractors to ensure service or fix problems even while Viasat takes your money for service you aren't receiving. If you disconnect you must send them the components while they take the cost first.
