Because Exede makes the rules and that's their rule. Fair?  No, I don't think so. Sure, they need to keep data hogs from pigging up all the available bandwidth at the expense of other users. People with data allowance left at end of the cycle certainly are NOT data hogs. Unused data allowance should roll over.  Who agrees?

I agree. I paid for that data I'm not using.

I think purchased GB should roll over to the next month.

We've had a number of people make this comment. It's something we've considered but we have no immediate plans to do rollover data.

Verizon does not roll over data, and AT&T claims to rollover data, but only for one month, then it is gone whether you use it or not.

Well, it is more like rollover internet ... and verizon and att have unlimited internet.  Exede is minimum $30 for 10 gb which would mean you could watch 3 HD movies in a month or search the web a few minutes only each day.  They told me that I had to turn off my computer "updating" or change it to the free hours.  I pay $125 month just for internet and then I run out and have to buy extra ...nd I don't do streaming or watch movies on my laptop or anything other than do my work and occasionally look at FB.  For instance, being careful, i still used up my 25GB the day before my end date...if I bought another GB for $9.95 for that one day and didn't use it, I would lose it.  In 4 months I have spent over $650 just for internet - and not without interruption.  And I still pay for landline and dish tv

I use Exede because I'm in a rural area and don't have many choices.  The data cap and their new email migration shows how clueless they are.  But I don't have much choice.
