I've been with exede for a number of years and I always looked for something cheaper. Well AT&T just released their fixed wireless internet in my area. It only tops out at 10mbs but it cost $60 a month for 160gb. I know I'm sacrificing a little speed but my I will be paying over half what I'm paying now. I'm not on any contract so I don't have any worries in letting them go.

Living the dream man. Hardly no one currently chooses satellite if something decent is offered as well. I keep hoping something will come along. That speed is fine for anything you would ever do. What happens when data is gone though?

You will be charged $10 for an additional 50gb. Not bad if you ask me.

Not bad at all. Been hearing a lot about this in areas. Wont get huge speeds, but low latency and fast enough for video.

I am sure Viasat and Hughesnet have been losing sone customers to thus service.

That does sounds good, but I won't see that in the southerntier of New York state where I live. AT&T doesn't even have any cell service here, only around the major cities. They seem to concentrate on serving the southeastern part of the country, and highly populated areas. For now, Exede works just fine for me.

Mississippi isn't highly populated and that came as a surprise to me. I'm glad that they are offering the service to rural areas  which Mississippi has a lot of. I haven't pulled the plug yet, I'm going to try the service out first. If it happens to satisfy my needs, I will go with them. Unlike a lot of negative post on here about exede, I've had very few issues with them. Overall, I'm satisfied with the service. I just wish they would lower their prices.
