Looking to sign up can't get any real net out this way only 1.6meg DSL Conection.
But i like to use utorrent to download my update for itunes video games and such. I read that its not allowed and some say it works and others say it dont.. if anyone could clear this up for me thanks..
We do offer speeds up to 12mbps. We have seen people use file sharing but keep in mind that Exede has a data limit depending on what plan you go on and once that plan's limit is reached, most plans will slow it to dial-up speeds. We do have a late night free zone with some plans which you can download and not be metered.
I personally don't like Torrents, but I know that they can work with Exede. But it really eats up the bandwidth. One of my household members was using torrents for awhile, but he was instructed to remove the torrent programs from his computer because they would start to download even when he told them to pause and it ate our bandwidth up.
If you can still get a plan with an earlybird or LNFZ, you can schedule your torrents to download during that period.
If you go over your limit, you'll end up with slower speeds than your current DSL.
As for the speeds, depending on your area, the speeds can be pretty good. My first few months with Exede on the 12Mb down pack, I was getting 20Mb down. Its slower now, but I don't know if that is because of something in the hardware or if its because there are now more customers all using bandwidth at the same time.
It's still better than the 1.6Mb conneciton most of the time though.
