Cruel Exede Redirect Page

Exede/Wildblue randomly redirects to http://notice.exede.net/dap-redirect.php  when you're being throttled.  Other people have also asked about this... why haven't you fixed it?  Why do you have this redirect page, as if we don't already know we're getting only 50 kilobytes per second?  The reason it's cruel instead of just uselessly annoying, is that we lose the page you we're trying to load, unless we happen to remember what it was.  So we never get it. 

Please don't deny this is an Exede/Wildblue page, like you did last time I asked.  I've included a screenshot with the URL.  Please fix this unnecessary cruelty, we already know you aren't giving us much bandwidth.  We are reminded every single day, 50 times a day.  We don't need to lose our webpages as well.

In case people are going to continue with the claim that this is not an Exede page, I examined the page source.  It contains the following:

<script src="dap/assets/jquery.js"></script>
    <script>window.jQuery || document.write('<script src="http://www.exede.com/wp-content/themes/exede/assets/js/libs/jquery-1.7.1.min.js"><\/script>')</script>

Also, if you claim this is not Exede:

Why does it never happen unless we've used up all our data?
Are you denying it's an exede-owned url?
Any alleged malware would have to infect Linux, Mac, and Windows, and effect Opera, FireFox, and Chrome.
If you claim it's a phishing attack, why doesn't it ask for information, or even contain links?

Yes Concentric Circles, that is a reminder that you have used all of your data for the month. It is supposed to be displayed once per day, per device used on your account as long as you do not have any data remaining.

If it is displaying more than once per dat for you, please send an email with your account and contact information as well as explaining what is happening to exedelistens@viasat.com so that they can look into it and see why you are seeing the warning too often.

Will do, thank you.  It does appear several times a day.  I wrote a script to ping the page every few min, but that did not keep it from redirecting the browser.  Even once a day for the 26 days out of the month we only get 50 kbps is  an entirely useless annoyance which seems designed to garner ill-will.  But thanks for not denying that the page exists (:
