I have to turn off my modem when not in use because of solar power restrictions, so it is only on for up to 6-8 hrs per day. Upgraded my data plan about a month ago, and though my usage has not changed, I am somehow out of data with 5 days left to the billing cycle. Previously, with less data, I only used about 2/3 of it in any billing cycle. So... MORE data purchased, INCREASED cost, NO change in my usage = data depletion before end of billing cycle. I see that I am not the only one to experience this, and would like an answer to this dilemma before I pull the plug entirely. That would be unfortunate since I have been a happy long term customer who has frequently recommended Exede to others.
