Although satellite internet technology can't give you the speed of, say, fiber-optic cable, there are times when it's your best option. For those living on the outskirts of El Paso or in pockets where cable, DSL, and fiber don't reach, Viasat offers plans that can give you reliable internet access -- but at a price.
Viasat's four monthly plans are not priced as competitively as AT&T or Spectrum, but the company offers reliable internet with top speeds comparable to DSL and cable. Viasat plans should be more than enough speed and data for most internet users. You can also find TV and phone bundling options.
- Price: $50 - $200/month
- Speed and Data: 12 - 100Mbps; after reaching monthly data allowance, you will experience slowdowns
- Plans/Packages: Add DIRECTV for $35/monthp & phone for $19.99/month
- Contract Options: 24 months, unless you choose a no-contract option, which requires a $300 non-refundable payment
