New Plan availability? Came on board late July, heavy user, and bought 15GB plan but still not enough

Living in zip code 04460 I have no other options than satellite, and didn't know DISH network (which I bought for TV) also was capable of internet. I don't know the details of their plan, and am already contracted with Excede, and honor my contracts.   Oops.  So I bought originally 10GB plan, which is not much these days with so many streaming videos etc., and upgraded to 15GB, but was told of a coming "unlimited" service in this area.  When will it be available, and how much will it cost per month?  Meanwhile, why can't purchased plan "Bytes" be rolled over, like cellphone minutes used to be before they all came out with unlimited talk and text?

I expect to live a few more years, but one never knows.  If unhappy with Excede, I will have to look at DISH when my contract is done.

P.S.  How do I find out when my contract is over?

Colorado Bobby,

FYI, Dish uses Exede for Internet access I believe.  I don't believe you live in an area that offers the Freedom Plan.  I wish you the best.

Dish Network sells both Exede and HughesNet and re-brands them as DishNet. Unless you specify which one you want you may get either Exede or Hughes. Exede is superior in all respects in my opinion. Although you can save $10 per month by bundling DishNet with your Dish Network TV, the data packages are not as attractive as the ones you can get from Exede. Another advantage of buying from Exede is that all their customer service and tech support is based in the U.S. so you are more likely to get someone who at least speaks American.
