I wished there were unlimited internet so we can watch Netflix or the roku we hardly get on because of that reason. I am not very satisfied with that I don't have money to throw away for more gbs.

Unlimited internet is available from most ground based internet suppliers. However, those companies choose to ignore those of us living in the less populated parts of the country. We all would like unlimited high speed internet, but for now I am very happy for my Exede service, which is far better than the dial up I previously had, with a top speed on good days of 18 kbps.

They don't "ignore" us. But if you had a company that provided these services, wouldn't you want enough paying customers to cover the cost to run the cable lines in that area? That's usually the problem. Not enough money to justify the means.

You might want to take a look at https://www.gonightshift.com/learn-more/

It may allow you to squeeze enough Netflix out of your current plan's free zone to be cost effective - those using it seem to be happy with it (basically schedules downloads during the free zones  to your router which works as a recorder and you watch them later).

In addition LorrieL may come by and explain her positive experiences with PlayLater...

Hi Sherry, I love watching Netflix myself and I want you to be able to see a movie too! Have you experimented with viewing al lower resolutions? I know an unlimited plan would be ideal but since it is not available at this time, there are sites, and setting and late night free zone, that will help you to view your movies. If you are having any system issues, or want to look at other plans, please send your account and contact information to exedelistens@visat.com.

Sherry - That's why the recommendations for the time shift programs.  Record automatically while you sleep and then watch when you get home from work.
