My brother and i recently moved out into the country where Exede was the only internet provider around, and now we are being slapped with a 25gb cap for internet use. We now have to cancel our various other subscriptions because of this ridiculous cap.

But just think how you'll be able to get outside and enjoy the country life when you're not playing games or watching TV.

Jeff, I know just what you are talking about. Moving into the new house was really close to not happening. I was sure I would find something close to what I had with suddenlink, 50 megs of unlimited service, and only had the 50 megs for about a month. The only big thing is the down loads. I can search what ever and really not notice any difference, where it hits me is downloading. I now try to down load after midnight. Then another thing was we had a VOIP phone system. I had over $500.00 invested in this service. Phones in every room, as many people could call out at the same time. We could transfer calls to different rooms. If some on left the house they could have there calls forwarded right to their cell phones and not bother any calls already on a call. It was amazing set up. And cheap. We was looking like .001 cents per minutes or maybe less. It was the way to go. I don't mind it at all, speed is not a issue other then for down loads. I think Exedel is great, it has not been a problem with me, but I am missing so much. I have all theses smart TV's and stuff and cant use it, so as cable  or phone internet comes through my area, I will have to tell Exedel good bye. Not because of the service, the speed, its the unlimited is what I am missing. But what did we do when we didn't have internet? One thing our family is getting more group time. I think that is the best thing of all. The family time, what is sad, it took the internet to show me we was not spending enough time with each other. Maybe keep it and get rid of the cell phones. We do have good phone cell service. Just think of the fun live we would have together if we didn't have cell service. The new technology is taking over our families. Country living is fun, we walk through the woods and actually talk to each other. Maybe this is what we needed, and others should see what it don't to the families.

Excellent comments.  I agree not having the unlimited is making me break out a few old toys so to speak, but also spending less time online isn't a bad thing.  Though like you I will jump ship for the first service that comes through that is unlimited or at least a much higher cap.
