I have had Excede for just over 2 years and my contract is up. My plan is $60.00 a month for 10GB. In the beginning I was told that this was a plan for most people I.E. work all day come home in the evening, do not stream or watch many videos. At first this seemed to be working as promised, but little by little the warnings started to come. Watch your usage. Since I am not at home during the day, I turn off the receiver so there would no doubt that I could not be unwittingly using any data. I also turn it off when I go to bed at night.. I also make it a point to avoid watching videos. But it has been a losing battle. Going over the data limit has become the norm even with these tactics. There have been times when I have paid for an extra gb to get through but since my contract has been up it seems like the allowance is getting used up even faster. The last 3 months I get two weeks before it is gone and I have just been dealing with it.. I recently started learning Italian online and again two weeks into the current cycle no more data. So this time I decided to buy not 1 but 2 gbs extra. It was gone in less than 2 days and I did not spend any additional time online either I just wanted to have the speed necessary to run the program. I CALL B.S. I do have a data tracker and it consistently says I am using less than Excede says. I am in a rural area. There are no options for me except for Excede or Hughesnet. I feel like there is a deliberate attempt to force me into a new plan and a new contract. Before I moved to where I am now I had access to a DSL from the phone company. Half the cost unlimited data and great speeds. Lately I have been going to library I have to drive 30 minutes to town but it is always free with better speeds. Crazy? Maybe but I am beginning to think it is better than $60.00 for two weeks.
