Will you ever have or move over to unlimited data? Or at least have your 50 gig data in a normal usage time? Not 2 to 8 am.. You don't even have weekends for your additional data. Very disappointing

Most likely only when competition from country wide, high speed wireless internet makes it necessary for them to do so.  Remember, wireless internet is the future.  When people begin to have a choice, their plans will surely change.

It gets back to capacity regardless the competition. Perhaps when the new satellite goes up there will be larger plans across the board. Unlimited, highly doubtful.

Hi lmbrjck,

This question is asked a lot. We understand. There's a new satellite launching very soon which will allow much more flexibility and should improve the QOL of our customers. Unfortunately satellite internet is a not cheap, expandable, or on the level of cable and other ground based ISP's. There will always be some limitations. Look out for more info coming in the near future. 

Thanks,
Chris

Daily refill with one day rollover but never unlimited. Was still a daily limit.

Jezra, you sure love sour grapes. Still gets back to individual beam/gateway capacity and how heavily loaded it is. You can call it luck I suppose and you could always move.  🙂

Lol Jezra, great, thanks for asking. I knew you'd bite. And now time for some serious reflection if I sound like Bill.

Pam, in researching it seems it may have been unlimited for a short while back then but it was also 500kbps speed and $599 installation cost.
