Exede lies! Rip off service, NEVER GET EXEDE!!!!

When I first had exede and when i went over my data allowance, on my slowed speeds (400kbps) I could still do pandora (requires 64kbps min.), magicjack (requires 200kbps min.), youtube 140p (380kbps min.), along with itunes downloads, and file downloads, sure they took maybe 10 minutes but they did download and I was happy.Well that all changed two months ago, all of those services that I use stopped working when I was slowed and I didn't understand why because I was getting the same speeds I had 2 months ago.

I called and called and called exede, they "didn't know" what was wrong. So today I decided to run a port blocking test while on the phone with exede, the rep said exede doesn't block ports... that's not what the test said! I told her that all the tests failed and said that exede blocks ports.

So I was put on hold while she looked into it, when she cam back on she said, "Our system is dynamic and we can sometimes block ports on slowed speed only and sometimes we won't." OK so first of all why sometimes!? Second of all, I'm already slowed to complete ***! Why block ports along with that!? I've had it with exede, all they do is lie lie lie!!!

I have told countless people not to get exede, I've spread it all over social networking. Guys we need to show people what exede is really like! How much they suck and how much they lie! I'm going to add screenshots of what pandora and youtube do, pandora doesn't even load the login screen, it'll eventually say that the server wasn't found.

Eventually youtube will say an error occurred.

Why is it that when we buy extra gigs, we can still only get the slowed down speed? We called the consumer service department and were told that once our limit was reached, we would only get the slowed down speed regardless of whether we paid or not. How is this fair? Why would anyone pay extra for nothing?

That's not right... email exede directly at exedelistens@viasat.com

I like exede. Yes, they slow your internet when you go over your limit. But hey, you went over your limit. Now your internet is slow, that's a consequence. I don't stream over exede, but they make it pretty clear that streaming takes a LOT of bandwidth. It's reliable, I live in a very rural area with a lot of strong weather. My exede has only been dropped once, and that was during a tornado.
Instead of streaming video, I have my computer set to download during the free zone. It works fine. I have zero complaints.

I think the point of the complaint is that they pointlessly block access to websites.

I hate exede as well! The speed I'm supposed to get is way slower than I was told. Why would I have to stay up till 5 am every night just to get on Facebook? Even when it is unlimited they update it and I can't use it. I call in all the time and never get my problems fixed.

After you have reached your data cap, instead of cutting your services off altogether, we slow your speeds. When your speeds our slowed, some ports get blocked due to the slow speed. If I'm correct, you have no problem utilizing the different sites when you are at regular speeds? Port blocking also has to do with your router and the slower speeds. If you need further assistance, please send me an email to exedelistens@viasat.com, with your contact information and when you will be available for a phone call.

I have found exede to be over priced, is slow and during a rain is intermittent, more off than on and have terminated them.

I have a vacation rental and I just switched to exede. Just moved up to 15 gigs and am running out so I have to buy 25. I have advised guests to limit video etc, but why should they? The fact is I will run out of data in a week even with the 25 gig upgrade. This ridiculous and I have been monitoring it every day and 4 gig were apparently used in 8 hours!! Impossible!
I am so sorry I changed from Hughes. Wrecking my business in a busy summer season.
As I can see, I am not the only one!!

4 gigs in 8 hours is very possible. HD content streams at about 1gig per hour. I would suggest going with 50 mbps fiber.

I'm sorry to hear that you are having issues with your service and I can definitely understand your frustration with not being able to access the same websites as you were in the past when your speeds were slowed. I will be glad to address your concerns with our data allowance policy and the slowed speeds when you have met your data limit. Please send an email to exedelistens@viasat.com and I will be happy to assist you. Thanks.

The only way I will email exede is if you know that you can get my slowed speed working again. I'm not going to lie about this but before these issues I LOVED exede! Even when it was slowed I still loved it because it was faster than my old connection and I could listen to my pandora slowed and have a home phone. But now I hate it because of this, can you just please get my slowed speeds like they were before? I want my awesome exede back.
