Will never recommend Exede to anyone I know or even don't know. Satellite usage was terrible. We went through our amount of usage in a couple days without performing much of anything. Then, the internet ran very, very slow. Will never go away from wired internet in the future. Also, customer service was not flexible and forced me to get on my roof in the winter to send a part from the dish or be charged another $200. Also, tried to email customer service for 3 months and never heard back. Was able to reach someone over the phone but again as noted not very friendly and appeared to only be after my money for cancellation fees. Go with any other carrier instead of Exede!

Sorry you had to learn the hard way, Kurt.  Satellite Internet is really only for those people that have no other choice (except in rare circumstances).  Having been a satellite user for over nine years, Exede has raised the bar considerably and is my first choice for satellite Internet.

Mary,

I can definitely see why you're upset I would be too. That is strange that they just sent a label I cancelled HughesNet to come here and after my 30 day grace period was up to be able to reactivate my old account they shipdd me a box with instructions and I'm assuming they got it I haven't seen a charge on my card. Now I have heard before from people even with equipment from other company's that some times they miss that they got it back and you get charged. That being said send an email to exedelistens@viasat.com woth your account amd contact information amd reference this post and one of the reps here will get back to you and they can review your account and make sure the credit is applied for the equipment and you can talk to them about the cancel fee.

Thank you. I did call and my credit card should be credited, so I will catch for that. I will try the email you sent and see if they can help me with the cancelation fee.

Mary, I'm very sorry that you have had such a negative experience. It sounds like you may have been sold our service despite being in an area where cable, fast DSL, or fiber are available, which we generally do not do. Our service is aimed at rural users and satellite internet has limitations inherent in the technology that other types of internet service do not.

As for ViaSat and Exede, we have been in business since 1986 and operate satellite networks that span the globe. That being said, it sounds like mistakes were made and I want to make sure we correct them all. Please email me at exedelistens@viasat.com with your account and contact information and I will double check to make sure that you're refund has been processed. Please reference your post in your email.

Hello Kurt, thank you for sharing your experience. I understand that we could not provide at this time what you need in your household. I hope that you find what your household requires with your new provider.

Kimberly, if you are going to ask for our assistance, then you must realize this is a two-way street and that you must set the example.

This means that any of the representatives that professionally point fingers, disregard issues, claim issues to primarily be the fault of the customer, and to demonify, demoralize or desensitize or goat the customers is considered disrespectful and harsh language.

Saying things professionally doesn't make the representatives immune to what the nature of their actual message is. Good luck changing yourselves to set the example.

I'm not so sure you can sneak in the back door with your kindness, Read his back profile comments Kim before you put a lot of stock into this, Maybe our weekend warrior.

Thanks Bobbie I did not know you could look at back post. I just read his profile and you are right. Almost every thread is someone attacking him. It's all about him being attacked. That sounds familiar. And now the butter up, kiss up. I think Alex has just about sent all the Champions away, I always just stop by every afternoon to read the post but theres nothing interesting here. Now on the humorous side I think it would be funny if all the regulars just set and watched and stop helping anyone for awhile, just let the paid employees deal with it as Alex commented in a tread the Champions don't get paid there just here. We all know who you are lumi so just feel attacked if you like because you're about the only one that cares. Have a wonderful night.

Oh I'm sorry Sue, you think I was whining. That's convienent isn't it? The way I say things is asserted as a complaint?

I'm sure no one cares that the word attack is in a definition pertaining to each conversation in context. Thusly you have failed to take it as it is meant and perceive it conveniently.

There is an explaination for you. But you perceived justification didn't you?

What's not civil? Alex?  There are people here that really help the customers that come in asking for help, which in turn saves you a lot of time. I think this forum is truly respectful. As far as the same person coming in every weekend with nonstop complaints we have no control over that. Slap me if I abuse the forum. It's my option how I feel about giving exede 3 gig's this month when it should be rolled over.

This is unusual to see a employee just drop by and leave a negative comment to the people that are the only real hands on experts here. Your staff Alex know what they can do for a customer and usher them to their e/mail. They do so because they can not explain like some of the regulars here can. How can you compare comments ' lonely in moms basement ' which by the way was not directed towards anyone. Compared To Liars, thieves, jerks and thats putting it mildly from rude consumers pointed directly at the very people in this forum that give the hands on help ask for. Your staff also get that treatment and thats allright. I'm a exeid customer and have been helped in this forum in the past and think it's a crying shame the way the Champions have been treated. From both directions. I thank them for there help and understanding.
