Exede created their own performance issues. When exede increased their data limit plans a few months back in an attempt to bring new customers onto their old service, it was all in an attempt to line up as many new customers as possible so they coudl introduce and migrate those customers over to their bright, new shiny satellite. The problem is their new satellite service is horrifically expensive. So why would anyone pay $160 per month for unlimited data and faster speeds? Because their old service has so many customers it can't handle the traffic. We have all seen the issue of low performance speeds continued outages and poor support. Don't even think about getting out of your contract. You are their hostage. When Microwave technology is available in our area for 1/2 the price for unlimited data, we are forced to accept excessive network issues and poor performance and the only solution Exede offers, other than keeping you only hole for a week and a day, is to pay their early termination penalty for a service they don't even provide. It is corporate greed, plain and simple. Don't stand for it. We all deserve better.
