Kim, any modern router should work fine with Exede service. You can get a perfectly good Netgear or D-Link router on Amazon or at Walmart for around 50 bucks (and up) -- they all work pretty well. If you want to go high-end, the Netgear Nighthawk is pretty high-powered, although it's $200. If I was going high end right now, I'd hold out for the new OnHub Google router coming out in a few weeks. It looks pretty cool, although it's also 200 bucks.

That's good advice Alex but I would also add look for one that has a data meter built in like I know Asus has in most theirs like $70 and up I'm sure netgear and Linksys do also just don't personally have a newer one with that feature.

OK so update....I finished reading over the link Alex posted about the new onhub by Google and it does have data tracking on their onhub app that installs on your phone. All in all it looks to be a nice router .
