We have Exede, and before that we had HughesNet. Of the two companies we MUCH prefer Exede- great customer service, we've gotten a real English-speaking person each time we've called. Our service is much more reliable with Exede than it was w/ HughesNet, but it will go out in heavy rain. The main issue I would say is the download limit. We have a higher-up plan, with the Liberty Pass. It does cost more $#$, but we run out of allowance regularly by the last week before our monthly renewal. WIth the Liberty Pass, I have no problem with my kids watching a few videos during school hours that last week. As far as robbing allowance, HughesNet was terrible about that! We watch our allowance at least once per day, and we shut off internet availability (disconnect router) anytime we are not actively using the Net. Having both companies, and watching so close, I would strongly recommend Exede over HughesNet, even if the plan looks like it's better.

Satellite internet has come a long way. Hughes Net and Exede are the two companies and i recommend Exede. Both offer service around 12 MB/Second and they have data caps. its a great service

I spoke to a few people who had Exede who expressed satisfaction. However, all but one were names given to me as references by the dealer. In my area more people seem to have HughesNet, but I had decided to choose Exede because it was supposed to give better, faster service in terms of the internet connection itself.

We have Exede. No complaints - it is exactly as advertised for us. My lRents have Hughes Net and their internet speeds. Are much slower than ours.

I have Exede and am very happy with them. In fact, I just upgraded to the Liberty 30 plan.
