Both upload and download data are counted by the Exede meter.

Steve,

Interesting... makes me wonder whether not breaking out upload/download separately on the usage meter is a source of some confusion for novices regarding usage - what I'm using vs. what something else is using on my behalf. Not saying that's necessarily the case here, but you've got to wonder with online backups, cloud services, etc thrown into the mix. I'm at a loss to explain the disparity between those who can live on 10GB and those who can't live on 150GB.

I don't do movies but do do some 2 minute YouTube just small ones. Also I'm the only one using computer so 10 GB works good for me.

All the more reason, I guess, that the meter should explicitly break usage down into upload and download (as it did early on and previously with Wildblue) as well as cumulative total.
