Yes, Viasat uses a two-year contract for satellite internet services. Service can be discontinued before the end of the contract, but there is a fee of $15 for each month left in the service contract for doing so.

Can I opt-out of the two-year contract?

There is a no long-term contract option at sign-up if you don’t want to have to pay for early termination fees, but it might not be the best option. If you don’t want to have a two-year contract, you have to pay a $300 fee upfront when your service begins. If you use the service for more than four months, the early termination fee will be less than $300 though. So, for most people, the two-year contract is a much better deal.

Do I have to sign up for another two years after my contract ends?

No, after your two-year contract has expired, you can continue to pay monthly for your Viasat satellite internet service without an additional contract. If you want to upgrade your service, and the new service requires new equipment to be installed, you will have to sign a new two-year contract.

The two-year contract protects Viasat from malicious people trying to steal the expensive satellite equipment. That’s why they charge a fee if you choose to opt-out of the contract.
