I am extremely disappointed with my "Unlimited Silver" service. As I formulate plans to move forward, I would like some advice from the group. First of all, I have been using the Exede modem/router thinking I would get the best management and transfer on their system. I have no problem using another router, and indeed I cannot get a signal from one end of my house to the other, let alone to my workshop 100 feet or so from the main house. First question: what is the normal speed loss when connected directly to a wireless router, assuming of course you have at least decent signal strength? As I have posted previously, my "Silver" plan above when unthrottled (usually around 4 days) posts maximum speeds of 8 to 12 Mbps as measured with an Ethernet connection directly into the modem. If I connect one wireless device, the speed measured on that device drops significantly to, say 4 to 6 Mbps. Once throttled, the speed at the modem is usually 400 to 500 kbps, with a wireless device coming in at 150 to 200 kbps when "prioritized". At $150 per month you can get an idea of my frustration. Additionally, I feel even if I should remain with Exede, dropping down to a lesser plan would be only reasonable, since it appears I am paying for speed that is never achieved. My question related to that is, since I'm getting less than half the "maximum under ideal circumstances" speed, if I dropped down to the 12mbps "maximum", would I most likely realize only half of that advertised speed? I asked an Exede support person that and never got an answer.
