Not the same thing as no data cap. Whether Hughesnet will implement something like this in the future? Who knows?
Don't forget that Hughesnet gives you 50GB of Bonus Bytes at full speed. Exede doesn't. I'd rather have 50GB at full speed than HOPE that Exede's speeds after going over the initial allowance would be anything worthwhile. There's a lot of assumptions there. "UP TO speeds of 1-5 Mbps" UP TO are the key words.
Exede: 10GB of high speed, then hopefully decent speed.
Hughesnet: 10GB + 50GB of high speed, then Smart Browsing (for those who have it), which is still high speed for regular browsing.
They don't even offer Exede where I live, or they are filled up and can't sign on any more customers here.
I think I'll stick with Hughesnet. The individual results between Hughesnet and Exede are telling.
Perhaps when you do what was asked of you on the thread that you started you could start getting somewhere on your speed problems.
