Choice 25

Twice the speed

The first plan from Viasat, Choice 25 gets you 25 Mbps of download speed for $49.99/mo. After your first 3 months, the regular price of $69.99/mo kicks in (same value ratios apply). Overall, the 25 Mbps is plenty fast for a medium-sized household with 3-4 connected devices at once. If you're consistently pushing 5 or more simultaneous devices, you're probably better suited for the next higher package, Choice 30.

Plan Review

As far as equipment goes, as with all other Viasat plans, Choice 25 gives you the option of leasing a modem/router (about $10/mo), purchasing one from them (about $250) or just using your own router. We recommend the latter as it's much less expensive long-term. You'll also have the best control of your network and, of course, get to keep the router whenever you make a change. Simply connect your router to whichever Viasat modem gets installed with your dish.

With regard to the 60 GB/mo cap on this plan, that tends to be a very loose cap and often not applied at all. If you exceed it, Viasat reserves the right to slow you down to under 5 Mbps for the rest of the month. It's an option because it really depends on how many other Viasat users you have in your area. If it's relatively few, you may not be capped at all. If it's a ton, you may experience the slower speeds in the evening or other peak times. Worst case, you can buy data at the end of the month if you really need the extra speed or just wait until next month.

PERFECT FOR: a mid-sized household that streams on 3-4 devices at a time.

Other Viasat packages

As you can see, Choice 25 is a nice low/mid-range plan. There are still three Unlimited plans above it. If you're unsure, give this one a shot first and upgrade only if you exceed your cap for two consecutive months.

Total Cost: Choice 25

Here's the full cost breakdown for the Choice 25 plan, including receiver, installation and other misc. monthly charges. Keep in mind state or local governments can add additional charges to your bill. The set-up below assumes you're using your own modem (which we recommend). Otherwise, you'll pay an additional $12.99/mo to lease one from Viasat.

The current Viasat deal gives you a $20 discount off this plan for 3 months. After 3 months, you'll pay $69.99/mo and that price will be locked in for 2 full years.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of customer service do I get with the Choice 25 plan?

All Viasat plans come with 24/7 technical support. That's a relatively rare perk these days. When we had Viasat, we didn't need to call support all that often, but it's always nice to know they're just a call away, even at 3 AM.

Does it matter what time of day I use data with Choice 25?

No. Unlike other the older Viasat plans (e.g., Liberty), the Choice plans don't factor in time-of-day with data usage. Stream or record stuff whenever you like.

What's it cost to switch plans?

Nothing, even if you downgrade. Call up customer support anytime and change plans as needed. You'll simply be charged or discounted the prorated difference by the time your next billing cycle rolls along.
