The Exede web site concerning Exede Voice shows people with 12 Mb connections can get Exede Voice. What about customers that already have Exede Voice, will it work on the Liberty plans if they change to that plan?

I made the switch to the Liberty 10 plan yesterday, and my Exede Voice is functioning as always. I am not into the Liberty Pass mode yet, so I can't speak for how well it will work on the slower speeds, but I can say that when I had the Classic 10 plan, my Exede Voice always worked even when the speeds were slow. Exede Voice goes directly through the modem, and doesn't seem to be affected by the speed accessing the internet. One of the Exede moderators can chime in to confirm how the Exede Voice will work under the Liberty Pass conditions.

As a long suffering Wildblue/Exede user, keep us posted on how it works out with the Liberty Plan, Steve, especially once you hit Liberty Pass - still on the fence on this one since I'd have to become a "new" customer without it being offered through NRTC.

P.S. I have to go back and crunch the numbers some more since I keep forgetting that a switch would allow me to bundle Exede Voice also.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for responding.   I have Exede Voice too and just saw Liberty has come to my area (YES!!). I'm haunted by the 12 Mb requirement to get Exede Voice connected in the first place.  Maybe it can't do the speed override in the Pass situation?

I suspect the 12 Mbps requirement is simply meant to convey Exede Voice isn't available on the Exede 5Mbps plans - just the 12 Mbps service plans.

That makes sense.  I'm rapping my fingers on the table waiting to hear from someone at Exede that can give the definitive answer.  i suppose the question comes down to this:  Will Exede Voice work while in the Liberty Pass mode of operation?  Your answer makes sense because Exede Voice works perfectly in the classic plan even when DAP'd but the Liberty Plan data allocation and capability may be quite different.
