Worse thing I've ever done is purchase exede. Pay over $100/mo for crap speed, crap service, and to only be able to use it for 4-5days then get cut off for data use. Upped my plan to 18gb and it runs out just as fast as the 10gb. And now stuck in a 2 yr contract. Mainly got it for kids to do online homework now it's back to the library after less than a week. I get 10gb on my phone plan and stream videos, movies, play games, download music, etc. never run out of data. Explain that.

Hello Alyssa,

Unfortunately cellphone data and satellite internet are 2 VERY different things in how the data is sent, the usage, ect. Plus if you're on a wifi connection you're not using any of your cell phone's data plan.

If you'd like for us to review your usage please contact us at
