Plans and video resolution

The sharpness of your image depends on both the resolution and the size of your display screen.
We've pulled together some examples of video streaming quality (resolution) that can help you decide which Viasat home internet service plan will work best for you. Low-resolution video (typically 360p) is best viewed on small screens such as phones or tablets – it uses the least amount of data – while DVD-quality (typically 480p) is best viewed on phones, tablets, laptops, and small-screen TVs. HD quality (typically 720p) looks good on most screen sizes. If you want your video to look good on even the largest screen sizes (including projectors), you'll want to stream at Full HD video (typically 1080p). For the highest cinematic standard for video resolution, designed for wide screens and digitally produced content, you'll want to stream Ultra HD (typically 4K). Here's a quick reference guide:
Understanding how the network is shared
Viasat's internet plans come with a monthly data allowance or other monthly usage threshold. Viasat's unlimited data plans that are available in some areas include a set amount of High-Speed Data and unlimited Standard Data. Unlimited Standard Data kicks in after you've used up your monthly High-Speed Data and during that time, you may experience slower speeds if the network is congested, such as in the evening. When the network is not congested, your service speeds won't be affected, even if you have used all of your High-Speed Data.
Check the plans available in your area for exact monthly usage thresholds. Watch the video to learn more about how we manage network traffic to keep you connected.
To get the best experience, it’s important to select a plan best suited to your usage needs, and to learn how to manage your data usage.
Managing your data usage
We offer a variety of resources to help you manage your data usage for the best value and experience. These include Viasat Shield, My Viasat mobile app, and My Viasat web. Once you’re signed up, our Help Center will also be a great resource with tips for how to check and maximize your data usage.
Selecting the best plan for you
If you’re still not sure which plan is best for you, feel free to contact sales for help choosing one. Or sign up now — if it turns out your internet plan is not meeting your monthly usage needs on a frequent basis, you may be able to upgrade your plan to one that better suits your needs.
