Your speeds will slow down to the point to where you won't be able to pull google...I'm NOT kidding. I had a customer just the other day who had gone over and my speed app had them at a blazing .11mbps. Please notice that there is a big dot right before the 11

Just validating the other 2 replies. Once you go over you are hit with a restriction. You can purchase more data at that point at 9.99/GB but that can add up.

there is an option now to "double your GB on any plan" for $10.00 per month. Unfortunately, once your exceed the 150GB there is no "slowing" but rather a total block, cannot receive/send emails, cannot use the Facebook chat feature, and as I have a VoIP phone, there is so much static you can't even call for assistance. Forget about trying to change your plan.

I might add, I have Exede internet only, 150GB, I use 2 Roku TV's, 1 during the day, 1 at night... I generally stream CNN/MSNBC, no HD movies. I reached the 150GB max...in SEVEN DAYS!

Steve that would be about 22 hours per day of HD video, be that TV or Movies, it doesn't matter HD is HD and, that's about 1 GB per hour. Yes, speeds are drastically slowed once you use 150 GB in a month, that is a lot of data. Please take steps to reduce that, as I have linked below.
