WildBlue was 1st, then turned into Exede. Classic Exede 12, is the plans offer now; aka, 10, 15, 25 Gig plans, Evolution, Freedom (if available in your area).

Willy, remember; Google is our friend...

The wheel was invented about 5514 years ago. What's a wheel? What's a tire? What's a wheelie, Willy?

So many question, so little time.

Word's to ponder, Willy:
Docendo disco, scribendo cogito. “I learn by teaching, think by writing.”
Enjoy the forum.

Willie - The history is as Everett stated.  The different accounts are on different satellites.  I was originally on WildBlue (Anik F2 Satellite) and now am on Exede 12 (ViaSat-1 Satellite).  Most locations have overlapping coverage of the satellites, but in some locations the accounts are limited either do to physical availability (no beams) or capacity availability (beam has max customer load).

Thanks for the info.  I too was on wildblue at one time. I left for the same problem I'm having here. Paying for one speed and not getting anything close to it most of the time!

I think that A. Everett Neuman is filled with knowledge. I remember him running for President a few times, but he was always beat out by guys from the Big Parties.
