slow during peak hours

I'm a new customer that is getting between 0.5 and 1.18 mbps from 5:00 PM until after I go to bed.  It's great at 5:00 AM  Customer service is a joke with 30-45 minute hold times and all they can tell me is that it is congestion in my area.  Is this all I have to look forward to for the next 2 years?  They offered to upgrade me to the 25 mbps plan but if the 12 plan gives me 0.5 what will the 25 plan get me? .06???

Welcome. I wished you would have found this blog before you got sucked in. You are not alone with this issue. I have had exede for two weeks and every evening I get those speeds. You probably did like I did and took what they said to be honest. My speed right now is .94 Mbps. I have called more times than I can count. I was finally told by tier 2 tech to just basically live with it because that's the way it is. I have filed a complaint with FCC. I doubt it does any good. They have over sold the network. I will probably buy my way out if I doesn't get better on a month or two. I can get unlimited at 6mpbs through local WISP, (wireless internet service provider). One person on here got a discount for 6 months.

Britt same here, but for a few months now it's getting worse. I have seen as high as 42 Mbps but not too often. Been like this from 11/2016 til now and still doing it. I am about to call At&t and look into wisp from cell phone towers.

I'm out. No more exede. I'm a WISP customer now. Good luck guys. I wanted exede to work for me, it just didn't. See ya. Going to unfollow all these blogs.

Some of it just depends on where you live and what beam you are in too because I have very little trouble ever I don't think there alot of poeple on the same beam as I am so it works better
