Went with cable :(!
Ok afrer the months of deciding I went with a year commitment with comcast cable....after dealing with them they installed the cable to my house without chare and it took 4 hours since im in an old neighborhood. Got 200 Mbps down and 10 Mbps up package for 69.99 a month plus free install so no way I could turn that down.

Just got it installed today and dang...250 down and 15 up is the normal.

I hope to return to what exede has to offer in a year....I just could not commit to 2 years with current offerings

No flame war and I think exede is excellent...just saying what worked best for me

I'm confused, so you have amazing cable service for a relatively cheap price and iirc comcast gives 1TB of data standard and has an option for true unlimited for $50 more a month.  Yet, you want to return to a service that will give you less for more? Exede is just fine for people who have no other options such as me, so I'm not hating on them, but if I had service like you described the thought of going back to Exede would never cross my mind.

:::scratching head:::  Who would go with satellite if there was a cable option. I have had a satellite ISP since 2001. It is the only option where I am. Not even close to a cell tower

Yeah it's perplexing. Not only does he have a cable option, but he has an amazing one.  So, why would he want to go to a service that would charge significantly more for significantly less?

I know it doesn't make sense
I will revisit exede in a year from now and make a decision

Makes no sense to me to want to get Exede when you have an amazing ISP, great speeds, unlimited data and latency of less than 25 mb. Satellite has a latency of 650 ms on average, which can limit what you want to do with your internet, and causes some connection problems from time to time.

I have no choice, but if cable ever became available, I would get it in a heartbeat.
