Is the online daily usage meter including the unmetered nighttime usage in its calculations? I see no way to distinguish one from the other online.

The online usage meter does not include the Late Night Free Zone.  It only counts your usage within your data plan.

What's the free zone thing?
I have Liberty Plus and I'm so confused still.

The original plans offered some 4+ years ago included the Late Night Free Zone whereby any data consumed between 12:00 AM and 5:00 AM was not counted against your monthly data allowance - these plans were available to all and are referred to as the Exede Classic plans now.

Some 2 years or so ago, two additional plans were offered - Evolution and Freedom. Evolution offered an Early Bird Free Zone from 3:00 AM until 5:00 AM. Freedom was a 150 GB plan with no free zone - these plans were limited to specific service areas.

The current plan offerings are called Liberty, which do not offer a free zone. There is one other plan called Essential 10 which offers a free zone but is no longer widely available.

Plan availability is dependent upon which coverage are (aka spot beam) you are on as well as which satellite you are on.

Hello Marcey, 

The Free Zone is offered on some Exede plans, it is a period of time during which data usage is not metered or counted toward your monthly data allowance period. Liberty & Freedom do not have the“Free Zone”. Your Liberty package does not have the LNFZ due to liberty pass. The Liberty Pass also works in the overnight hours. 

Plans that provide this feature 
Classic Exede: Late Night Free Zone (10, 15 or 25GB): Daily from 12 midnight to 5 a.m.
Evolution: Early Bird Free Zone: Daily from 3 a.m. to 8 a.m.
Essential 10: Early Bird Free Zone: Daily from 3 a.m. to 8 a.m.
