Satellite Internet users: Exede is faster & costs less.

Yes, here comes a commercial.  For Internet users out in the country, a new satellite Internet provider has joined the playing field among HughesNet and WildBlue.

I have never endorsed HughesNet because I felt they underdelivered and overpriced their service.  WildBlue overdelivered for the price, and now that I read ViaSat owns both WildBlue and Exede – with Exede boasting the faster speeds – I am curious to see if they will market Exede to the more demanding Internet users, where WildBlue will be marketed to the more casual Internet user.

Keep in mind – satellite is still satellite, and is very subject to weather conditions.  So on a stormy or snowy day, your Internet experience might be terrible, but if you don’t have any other connectivity options, take a look at Exede:  http://www.viasatresidential.com/exede .

    I install the satellite internet for parts of North Dakota and I will tell you that it is much faster than before. PING rate is still high but your burst downloads are good.

      @William – Ping times won’t change because of the distance required for the packets to travel from the subscriber to the satellite in space and back down to the ISP’s headend, but I’m happy to hear the good news that burst bandwidth has increased. Thanks!

    I just moved to River Falls area, but not close enough to be able to get any ISP other than satellite or a 4G service(huge mistake). I ended up with the 4G service because it was the same price as satellite, lower pings, and they seem to be more reliable. Only downside is the data cap is lower, only 10 GB a month. 10 GB is pretty pathetic but then so is most satellites’ competitively priced packages at 15 GB.

    There are so many companies who provides satellite internet services. And I guess, with all these great choices, subscribers must find out about the limitations
    and whether the company offers ‘off-peak’ usage without hindering the amount of usage.
