Go to www.exede.com and use the dealer locator to find a dealer near you. Local dealers are usually your best bet assuming you can get good references on them. Be sure and do your homework. If satellite internet is your only option, you can learn to live with data restrictions, and you get a good installation you will be happy.

Some addition help and advice would be ...Be sure that you read your contract carefully because each dealer may tell you something
different as to what you think you may get in service.

I noticed my question did not even appear. So the question would be is it worth going from Hughesnet. I live in the South West of Wisconsin and looking for better speeds with youtube playing.

Yeah it would be best to wait. Exede is having problems right now and seem to be blocking ports on people that have gone over their arbitrary data allotment of which said data disappears over night now for no logical explanation.

In fact, how is HugesNet? I'm thinking of switching myself.

Well speeds are over the place. When you want to sit down and run speed tests, then things are fine. I havent had a problem with the ghost data being used. They have an app gauge you can install on your computer that tell you how much you used. I been using the same modem and dish for 4 years. Im afraid it might just need a new modem due to the slowness inconsistencies.

Alright, thanks.

We have been with WildBlue/Exede for over 6 years and still have our same equipment and have often wondered if equipment age has had anything to do with some of the problems we have encountered.

run to any other service.  you will lose your data in less than a week, no downloads or streaming, only 1 unit on service.  This is ot a great place for internet service.

A bit of a gamble which is better. All depends on loading so Exede may be better in one area while HughesNet is better in another.

Wouldn't truly know unless a person installed both providers at a location then compared results.

Neither company posts loading and average speed for a given area which is sad but not surprising.
