I don't mind the slow speeds after data cap is used.
I hate the fact that they block entire websites and links after data cap is consumed.
that's unheard of, we don't live in a 3rd world country where internet is blocked.
can't wait for a better internet service provider to come around here....
there's a new company coming into town next month..., great speeds..., unlimited data usage..., and no contracts.
the community is aware of the ISP's via the community fadebook page and there much talk about everything....
people here are exited to here about new ISP's coming in this quarter.....
Me.., I could just never get used to having a data cap with followed blocked websites and links.
I beta test software, and yes I have to download what I am going to test. Most of the time that's under 500 MB but, occasionally it's far more. Then I have two choices, use the LNFZ, pause the download during the day and, go again the next night or, get all of it I can during the LNFZ, let it run and buy more bandwidth that month.
That's what I agreed to when I signed up for Exede.
"Will Netflix work?" is a very general question. If I interpret the question to be "will the technology allow me to watch movies?" then the answer is yes. The technology will. If I interpret the question to mean "Is 10 GB enough data to allow me to watch Netflix as much as I want?" then the answer is no.
I don't know what happened to Pam or anyone else. I understand your school issue. I've watched many sessions at the library and downloaded plenty of sample data sets and test at the library.
A similar question about using VPNs on Excede was asked within the last week. Will VPN work? There's nothing in the technology that would prevent it. It's all just ones and zeros. But, the inherent latency of satellite might cause the VPN to disconnect..but maybe not. It depends on the settings of the VPN not the settings of the satellite.
Now I have been on Satalite Internet for over 9yrs now on a 10Gb plan and haven't had issues with going over. Now I don't watch a lot of movies or anything because I know I don't have the data for it. Occasionally I might watch a TV show or two if I missed it. Now the Facebook games and stuff should work just fine I used to play farmville and countyville and currently I play wartune which is 100 times more demanding then eather of those. Yes it can get quite laggy especially when my speeds get down to 1-2meg down load which I'm working with Beau now trying to get that up. I guess point being is yes the data plans do suck big time but they are there because of the fact that the satalite only has a limited capacity of it's own. So in order to keep the speeds up for everyone they create data plans so you don't go crazy and start being a bandwidth hog.
I am irritated but not angry about missing the sign up for Evolution in our area but I am not happy with the unequtiable treatment of user access policies. If you are going to affect classic users downloads, streaming and even web browsing, then the least you can do is slow down evolution users on the non web browsing activities in the same manner when they hit their cap. Either that or offer the same plan to all users so we can get the same experience.
I would like someone from Exede to address this here in the forum so we can understand what is going on and when will the slowness be addressed. I believe once evolution users are slowed down when DAPd on the downloads and streaming it will greatly help to alleviated some of the congestion we are seeing.
