I am going to unsubscribe from this forum due to the fact that I am met with whining in my inbox about Excede every time I check my email. And it is always, always, the same old whining about slow speed and data disappearing. Those whining never consider that Junior is in his room watching Youtube in high definition at 4gigs per hour or that little Susie is watching Facebook video's in high def at about 1gig per 15 minutes. Or that the baby monitor, yes the baby monitor is operating via the internet and using data. Don't forget that iphone that every family member has attached to their face, it is wifi enabled and don't you know it automatically connects to the strongest signal around which is the radio signal emitted from your router. Speaking of that router, have you even bothered to log into it and see just which device or devices is using your data? Probably not, why actually look for the cause when you can just blame it on the evil folks at evil Excede. The computer that you send your whines from, when was the last time it was optimized to minimize unseen data usage? Turned off those live tiles on Windows 8? Does your computer have a data usage app downloaded onto the screen so you can see right there on the screen how much data it is using,broken down by the hour? Will each and every one of you (you know who is guilty) face reality and accept the fact that a satellite in space sends you the data that you call the internet. Once it enters your satellite dish and your modem: repeat once it enters your satellite dish and your modem: where it goes from there is strictly up to you. Yes it is. You can be lazy and not search out when and where the data is being used but it is being used on and by devices that belong to you and yours. Excede isn't stealing your data or slowing down your speed. Time to stop complaining and spend that time educating yourself about how modern technology operates and the role you play in that operation.

Actually, I was being factious, had I wanted to unsubscribe all it would take is one click on the unsubscribe notice at the bottom of each e-mail. But your dour comment is duly noted, nonetheless. If I am ever searching my brain for a solution to a problem presented on here, I will remember that you don't have any "junior's or baby's" and that you do not recognize a generalization when you read one.

Emory,

No need to unsubscribe, simply go to your profile and under Email & Notifications uncheck everything to stop receiving those emails.

With this post you've brought more to the table than all of the whiners combined and have undoubtedly helped those genuinely seeking help.

As the Lama once said: "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness."

So ya got that goin' for ya, which is nice.

Good reply Emory,
You have nailed the main issues several people whine about and all the blame goes toward Exede.

I also get burned out at the mass Exede blasting, but then some members do listen to honest help and get their issues fixed.

Like Lab said, you can change your email settings, but your input to the forum is valuable. Honest opinions whiter good or bad always are.

Enjoy the forum,
Everett

Emory isn't going to unsubscribe from forum. He's just making a point and a good one at that. People say Exede  doesn't answer there calls and don't help them but if they ask question nicely on forum people do try to help.  Think of all the people who have to get on internet by satellite Thousands I'm sure.  I have heard remarks made about Hughes net not being so great either. So Exede is not picking people out of thousands and messing up their internet. If something's wrong with equipment they are good about fixing it. Well if you ask politely.

Hello Emory, we encourage our customers to post to our forum to express their issues, so that we can assist them. Sometimes they just need to be informed about how data usage works, but we want to be able to reach those customers so that we can educate them.

Amber, I did educate them; I just disguised possible solution's in the form of a tirade against the "pass the buck" mentality that is rampant on here. Most will continue to complain,but if even one takes the initiative and realizes that they can solve their own problem, then it was well worth my time and effort. Personally, I enjoy helping those who encounter problems; but there has to be some acceptance of responsibility on their part rather than constantly pointing at Excede.

Pleasure to have enlightened you. Closing out? I wouldn't dream of doing so, especially now. The need for new members', with fresh and relevant input,has never been more apparent.
