I live in West Virginia. I am about 24 or 25 miles from the nearest town which would be Logan WV. Where I live we have no cable TV or internet. We depend on Dish Network or Direct TV for television service. For internet we depend on Exede or Hughes Net for internet service. I work as an information systems technician. I rebuild PCs, run network cable, and trouble shoot many other pc issues. We have super fast internet at my work place. But I am happy to have Exede for my internet access. I get 6 to 25 mbs a lot of times. But even if I didn't and I only got 2 or 3 mbs I would still be happy and thankful because at least I can get internet service. I am willing to help Exede expand and help them how ever I can so that they can provide us more plans and options with super fast speeds.
I see and hear so many many people on hear that have hardly anything good to say about Exede. I think it is so sad. Yes they are a company but they are doing the best they can to make this service the best it can be. Technology is something that takes time and patience to develop and make it work. I say this because Satellite technology is expensive and time consuming. Yes I am well aware that companies like Comcast, Sudden Link, Shantel are going to be faster, but even if they are I would not put Exede down because Satellite does have its limitations such as rain fade. So instead of everyone complaining and constantly crying. You should be thankful that you have internet service. All I had before Exede was dial up internet service. Has everyone forgotten how slow dial up internet service is? My Grand Father used to say "if you don't have anything good to say then you shouldn't say anything at all." I am guilty of not doing what like my Grand Father said, but then when I hear him in my mind say this I repent that I have said things that are negative when I shouldn't have. I don't want any of you to think that I am without making mistakes because I am by no means perfect and I want know this.
So we should stop for a moment and think we could have no internet service. Be thankful everyone for the good things we have because some folks don't have what we do. Please don't get mad at me. I am not telling you this to make you mad. I want you to be thankful. We need to more patience. Have a great day everyone!
