I now feel that there should be a low speed limit minimum. If Exede is offering unlimited bandwidth to some areas, and eventually all, that means bandwidth isn't an issue, and then there should be enough bandwidth to give at least everyone 1mbps slowed speed, or even .50mbps slowed, no less. (not counting technical issues etc.) So, If you go over your cap, you won't get the full 12-15mbps, but a slowed .50 or 1mpbs.
My point being that if they are offering unlimited data plans, that these so called "heavy abusers" that are getting restricted to the point of being restricted and can do nothing, not even surf a page, this should not be enforced to the point of not being able to surf the web. I know many people have expressed their disgust at this tactic.
For Exede to just be restricting speed to the people to the point of not being able to use their service just because they went over cap is despicable. The main reason being that they are now offering unlimited to select areas, and soon to be spectrum wide. Yes I understand slowing their services. I do not understand, however, slowing their services to the extent of them not being able to surf at all.
I clocked in a speed test of 0.04mpbs on a slowed or restricted speed. As soon as my contract is up, I feel forced to depart from Exede unless they fix some core issues that everyone is experiencing. (See the multiple data issue threads, ghost data charges and usage issues)
Thanks for your time
