I would like to know if I use my 18GB and have the liberty pass, am I going to incur charges for anything over that 18GB still? Or is the Liberty pass slower with no additional charges of overages.

I have Liberty Plan. So far have not had to use Liberty Pass. But from others that had Liberty Pass have heard that it slows down but not bad. That is depending when your on the computer. If it's when a lot of other people are on it will slow down a lot I guess. But there is NO additional charges when in Liberty Pass.

Hello Jason,

With the liberty plan you will not incur additional charges after you go over your primary. At that point you'll be slowed between 1-5mbps so you can still use the internet but you won't be charged for that. It will reset once the new billing cycle for you begins

As noted by Brad above, no additional charges are incurred for data consumed during Liberty pass mode. While speeds are typically in the 1 - 5 Mbps range during non-peak hours when on Liberty pass, they can be slower during peak usage periods as you receive a lower priority than those who've not exceeded their monthly data allowances. There are no speed guarantees at any time (and all speeds are clearly advertised as up to).

From your other post, it appears you are in a service area that is approaching its capacity since sales are limited to the Exede dealer channel - so take that into account also.
