Interesting if finding out how many people have data speeds below 1 meg often?

Some people say they never have a problem with extremely slow download speeds once
they use up the plan data. I read where one person stated they always stream videos with 
no problem. Why are so many people complaining of fractions of a meg download speed? Is it because of the strain on the system in many cases?

It just took me 10 min. to open my e-mail to reply here. This sucks. Still trying to recover from Direct TV  auto downloading ON DEMAND programing without me knowing it.  They used up all my Data in 11 hours after my data renewed on the 20th of last month. Now I have suffer through it till the 20th of this month. I swear my download speed is now slower than dial-up.

I got exede on 12/28/16. I was told I used up the 10gb hi speed data in 1 day. It was (so they say) the downloads of Directv. I TRIED to download 2 movies and was unsuccessful when the message said I didn't have enough data or it was too slow. So. On Jan.1,2017 I renewed the 10GB data. It never changed saying I used it and I did NOT try to download anything on demand. I have called at least 4 or 5 times complaining and get the same answer from illiterate non-english speaking persons. Now I changed the settings on Directv as read on another blog. I will not know if I use up the 10GB until Feb 1st or 2nd but for now, I placed a data counter on my Mac and I never use more than 350mb in a day. I still cannot download Facebook videos unless I turn on my ATT cell phone data and use that. I am not going to spend $95 for enough gbs to download one movie. I hate this Exede and am seeking something better.

How many months left on your contract and what would you have to pay to get out of it? Just curious
