I live in the country and have used a verizon mifi device for over 5 yrs. I had a 10gig limit for 3 yrs and a 20gig limit for 2. I never came close to going over the limit. Since switching to exede, I struggle every month to stay within the 20gig limit. I have put a data counter on my computer, the same one that I used with verizon and found to be very accurate and it never even reads close to what exede says I am using. I like the service, but if I was not under contract I would go back to the mifi device. I have tried to switch plans, but the area I live in has no options for me to switch to. Don't know what exede does to measure usage, but it is way above my actual usage, I find myself using my phone nearly as much as my computer. Sad situation.
