Here in the Midwest, we have had 2 major winter storm events in the past 2-3 weeks.  I live in a rural area where the only 2 options for internet are a Fixed Base wireless connection at 1Mbps or satellite.

During the recent weather events my Exede and Exede Voice stayed up even during the 2-3 inch per hour snow we were having.  As long as I had power, I had internet and phone.

I had another satellite provider in the past, and it was not as reliable, and had similar data cap issues, but with the other provider, when I was FAPPED, I could not use the internet at ALL.

Yes I run out of data with Exede some months, but even when Dapped, I can still surf and email at least.  25gb works most months, but we watch our data usage and know where the data is going.  Kudos to Exede for all they have done to provide internet to us out here in the sticks!

Hi Randy,
My experiences are almost exactly the same as yours. My sticks are west of your sticks, Colorado boondocks. But all is good for an internet connection.
