DirecTV's offering a new satellite broadband bundle the company hopes appeals to rural users, though it suffers from the bane of all satellite broadband: annoying usage caps. We've known since May that DirecTV would soon be selling ViaSat's Exede satellite broadband service, and now we're getting a good look at some of the bundle pricing DircTV is offering. According to the Exede website, new DirecTV TV customers who bundle 12 Mbps down, 3 Mbps up can now add on Exede broadband in three flavors:

• 12/3 Mbps with a 10 GB usage cap for $40 a month.
• 12/3 Mbps with a 15 GB usage cap for $70 a month.
• 12/3 Mbps with a 25 GB usage cap for $120 a month.
Those are actually 12 month promotional prices providing $10 off the regular price, which is an offer the companies say will only last until January 31. To get those prices you have to be a new customer, and you have to sign a new two-year contract. Those unfamiliar with Exede pricing should know the usage caps don't apply between midnight and 5 AM, and users have the option of buying extra bandwidth -- at $10 per each additional gigabyte.
New agreement creates opportunity to shape high-speed Internet bundle that helps DIRECTV subscribers get even greater service value
Carlsbad, Calif. – ViaSat Inc. (NASDAQ: VSAT) has added another wide-reaching channel to distribute its high-speed ExedeSM by ViaSat satellite Internet service. A new agreement with DIRECTV initiates plans to add ExedeSM high-speed Internet service to a selection of video and broadband bundles for the home. Introduced in January, Exede delivers speeds of up to 12 Mbps (megabits per second) via the highest capacity satellite in the world.
“Satellite TV customers are a natural fit for our Exede service, making this an important part of our distribution strategy,” said Mark Dankberg, ViaSat chairman and CEO. “Exede’s fast broadband connections offer an Internet service that will complement the DIRECTV connected home video experience. This new agreement creates an opportunity to shape a high-speed Internet bundle that helps DIRECTV subscribers get even greater value from their service.”
The speed of Exede Internet service makes it very competitive with wireless home broadband service as well as legacy DSL and many cable services. The satellite Internet service, now available in all 50 states, brings together the highest capacity satellite in the world, next-generation ground equipment, and breakthrough web acceleration technology. The service offers speeds up to 12 Mbps downstream and up to 3 Mbps upstream beginning at $50 per month.

Where is the Exede Dish Located?
Dish broadband systems can be mounted on a pole in your Fargo backyard, on the edge of the roof, anyplace that has a clear aim at the satellite in the sky above North Dakota. The Exede dish is small and can even be hidden from view if the location allows clear line of sight. Your installation tech will go over ideal mounting spots with you. You can then agree on a spot to mount the dish. The small dish antennas will be a great addition to your Fargo satellite tv service.
Fargo ND Internet Services by Exede
Speeds will vary depending on your location in the US. New technology though Exede internet has boosted download rates from 1-2 mbps to as high as 12mbps. Your Fargo ND internet provider options are entered into the availability search tool and depending on your service location there should be 3 download plans available to choose from. Up to 1-2 mbps, up to 5 mbps, and up to 12 mbps. The 5 mbps plan will be 2 to 3 times faster than the older satellite systems. While in some select regions your available speeds can reach as high as 12mbps through Exede. For satellite carriers this new speed availability of up to 12 is a huge improvement over anything else previously seen.
What about Download Caps?
Fargo satellite internet providers currently have download caps on monthly usage. Typically Fargo ND Exede satellite internet services caps are 10 GB, 15 GB and 25 GB monthly. Other carriers limit data on a daily usage, 250 mb, 350 mb, and 450 mb. A rough simple conversion is 1000 mb = 1 GB, every 4 days you have used 1 GB, 1 month of the 250 mb daily plan will entitle the user to roughly 7.5 GB a month. Sounds a little confusing but it’s not. If you hit your limit the carriers typically turn your available speed down, not off. With practice you will become familiar with the amount of data usage required to stream video, download music and surf the web. Usage caps and plans are variable, call for current terms and conditions. There may be off peak unlimited download plans available. With technology booming we hope to see unlimited plans soon. Call us for the Exede internet current caps.
Can I Move My Exede Dish From Fargo?
You may move but your system must be professionally installed by a certified technician. The Exede upload and download requirements of your broadband satellite system requires a very precise aim. Satellite systems are permanently mounted at a location the home owner and technician agree upon, prior to installation. If the home owner needs to move service to a different location you will need to call your Exede satellite provider for current installation fees. The satellite providers do not want to lose a good customer so ask if there is a free move promotion you can take advantage of.
Wireless VS Other Fargo North Dakota Internet Providers
Wireless is for those looking for internet on the go. Wireless has been recently gaining popularity. Speeds vary from 1-6 mbps, so this service is not ideal for a home ISP but great for on the go. This is why so many rural customers choose a Fargo ND Exede satellite type service. Wireless Fargo providers will have coverage maps. Phone service may be available but not internet. You may be in a 3G neighborhood or possibly be in a 4G area. Service may be spotty or you may have rock solid reception. Very similar to your cell phone, location and proximity to a tower is everything.
Do Wireless Services Have Download Caps Like Satellite Internet?
Yes and no, for the most part wireless carriers in North Dakota will have monthly data caps. Be careful, some companies overage fees can be excessive. However there are a couple of wireless companies that are currently offering unlimited service. Plans, prices, availability and data caps differ.
Exede Internet VS Satellite TV
Do I need a Exede Internet Dish in Addition to my TV Dish?
Does Dish Network or DirecTV offer Internet Services?
Many people think that they can get online through their existing ND dish TV service. This is not true. In addition to tv you will need Exede satellite internet services. There are two satellites in the sky so you will need two different dishes. One for a tv product and one for Exede internet service. Dish Network & DirecTV do offer internet but usually go through a third party like AT&T, Wildblue, Exede or Hughesnet.

What internet provider you want will depend on your needs. Cable is for speed, DSL is for savings and Exede is for rural customers that need satellite.

There are many free TV and movie sites as well as pay sites like Netflix on the web. Because Exede has a data cap you may want to go with a traditional service if available.
Typically if you can get a cable service for your property this is the ideal service provider. Cable can normally provide faster downloading speeds needed to stream video with out buffering. Cable lines are being upgraded to satisfy the ever expanding usage. Even though priced similar to DSL, cable can offer superior down load mbps. If none of these types of solutions are available, Exede satellite internet services can be a ideal alternative. No longer are the times of dialup being quick enough for the typical home, eventhough simple emailing is definitely still popular, the internet has developed into a very interesting place. Search for just about anything, stream online HIGH DEFINITION videos, purchase airline tickets, you can even list and sell your old sofa on the internet.
Hold on tight, we all are in for a ride. Over the next few years providers like Exede Internet will be making some pretty interesting improvements. Get set for faster speeds and reduced costs in your city soon! Can my family access the internet for free anywhere?
