THE GOOD

Freedom plan offers virtually unlimited access:

Exede offers a relatively unique satellite Internet plan with no data caps. The Freedom plan is currently only available in select areas and you can find out if it's available where you live by going to Exede's website and entering your zip code. You won't find another satellite Internet company that has a plan like this, so it's worth taking advantage of if it's available in your area.

Fast download and upload speeds:

All of Exede's satellite Internet packages come with 12 Mbps download speeds. This is significantly faster than some other satellite Internet providers and could have a big impact on your Internet's performance. Upload speeds are similarly fast with Exede, with a 3 Mbps rate included in all their plans. This, too, could have a serious effect on your overall experience with satellite Internet, and both of these features are especially appreciated by those who use the Internet to look at or upload photos and videos.

25GB of data per month:

With Exede's satellite Internet, you can get up to 25GB of data per month, which is extremely valuable to anyone who uses the Internet frequently. Many other satellite Internet providers only offer 15 to 20GB at most, so that makes Exede's offerings especially desirable. If you happen to surpass your 25GB limit, Exede also allows you to purchase more data so that your Internet speed does not slow down. This adds some flexibility to their satellite Internet plans that many are sure to appreciate.

Bundle with DIRECTV to save money:

Those interested in purchasing satellite TV as well as satellite Internet can enjoy Exede's special discount for customers who also sign up for a contract with DIRECTV. With this deal, you receive $10 off your monthly bill for the first year of Exede's two-year contract, and you do not have to pay the setup fee, either. You can choose from five different DIRECTV packages and any of Exede's three satellite Internet packages. This is a valuable offer that you may want to consider if you are looking for satellite TV service in addition to an Internet provider.

Late Night Free Zone:

Exede allows customers to use as much data as they would like between the hours of midnight and 5 a.m. without having to worry about data limits. This is a great bonus because, though many other companies have similar times of the day when Internet usage is not counted against your monthly data, these "free zones" still have their own data limits. With Exede, you can spend less time keeping track of how much data you have left and more time online.

THE BAD

A little pricier:

Exede's satellite Internet plans are a bit more expensive than some of their competitors, but it's also worth noting that they do offer much higher data limits. You should also be aware that you could be charged a fairly high installation fee on top of your monthly rate depending on your region. Installation fees can be $0, $49, or $99. However, if you're looking for a satellite Internet provider that offers fast download and upload speeds along with high data limits, Exede may still be worth it despite the higher costs.
