I've had cable or direct access to Ethernet (not the cable) most of my adult life. The last place I was at I had cable in NY. It's been a big adjustment for me because things are not loading so fast I wonder if it knew I was going to click on it.

I've used my phone before and while it is much faster I don't like paying the fee for it! I'm not sure how I feel about sat so far.

Living in the country again, as when I grew up, I found that connectivity is pretty important to me. This is much better than dialup ever was though, haha.

I have two options the excede and the Liberty Pass. Which is better in your opinion?

That depends on how much downloading and streaming you want to do and, on how you feel about being a night owl. If you want to download a lot and/or stream a lot and, don't mind being a night owl then, a classic plan is probably better for you.

If you don't download tons or stream a lot or, can't be a night owl because of work or whatever, then a Liberty Plan is probably better.

Personally I do a few large downloads and, my partner does stream a little on weekends but I don't stream at all during the week. I went with Liberty 30, it's best suited for what we want to do online when we want to do it but, that's me, you may prefer a classic plan with the LNFZ.

I think I might go with classic. What are the hours we are talking about? And what happens when one goes over the data? Is there a fee for extra data?

With Classic, your free zone is Midnight to 5 AM your time. When you go over your limit, you can buy more data at 9.99 per GB or, you are slowed, sometime to a crawl and to the point that some webpages will time out. That's usually during peak congestion times, late afternoon to around 9 or 10 PM. Speeds are restored during the LNFZ, even if you are over your limit.

With Liberty, there is no free zone but, you are not slowed as badly when you go over your Priority Data allowance. Most of the time, you can still stream video on Liberty Pass, possible a bit stop and start due to loading at peak congestion times but, that's when any plan that is over the limit slows the most.

Depending on what you use your computer for. I don't stream just do a little UTube. I have Liberty plan-12. I'm very happy with it.
