Don't get me wrong - there have been hiccups - but without exception - Viasat/Excede/Wildblue have worked with me on every issue I have had. I had a problem connecting with an old AT&T email account I have and they stayed with me until I got it to work. There has never been a time when I did a speed test that Excede has not beat Comcast's speed - hands down. I know what Comcast/Xfinity promises - but they NEVER DELIVER. I am not a tech, but I was able to connect a $40 wireless NetGear router to my modem and get it to work. This service is worth moving to - even in the city!!! ~~Good luck, Lee Tipton
I have had Exede Satellite internet now for 4 months, and I have been exceptionally happy with it. In general, I run two web sites and use it for general home computer work, I do not game with it so I really can't say much for that. Otherwise there is to this point, nothing that I have been unable to do with this internet connection. In the past we have had air card and mobile phone internet connections. All of which produced poor service, slow download, upload and inability to properly run my web pages and keep up sending pics in emails. With Exede Internet it takes just moments to update my web sites and seconds to attach pics or send video via email. I had heard mixed reviews in the past about satellite internet services, everything from slow speed to inability to use it during bad weather or cloudy conditions. Let me tell you I have had lightning fast internet even in down poor rain storms this spring. The only time I have experienced an outage was this past winter in an ice storm, my dish was covered in over an inch of ice, no surprise that it didn't work then, but it melted quickly and within an hour or so we were back up and running. Another thing that is helpful, is that Exede has online usage monitoring so that I can watch my usage, they also have late night free usage which is great and allows me to download and upload large files without touching my monthly usage amount. So the long and short is that I have had the best service , fastest speed and consistent availability which has far surpassed all other options available in my rural area, in Missouri. Thanks so much Exede for producing an exceptional service!
Got Exede, like it so far
I got Exede last month and I like it so far. It is a lot faster than what I had before (slow DSL which was all that was available).
I am taking off one star because of the high ping times but every satellite service is going to have that so I don't care too much.
