Re: [Exede] $9.99/GB if you want more

Hughesnet has stated they are committed to their FAP free download zone. That certainly is better than a $9.99/GB deal any day of the week.

Latest stats I could find...

In the first half of 2009, the median broadband user
consumed almost 2 gigabytes of data per month, whereas
the average (mean) user consumed over 9 gigabytes
per month.

Mean usage is driven by a small set of users who consume
large amounts of data.

Hence, for typical users, having a download zone in the wee hours of the AM morning is an irrelevant matter.

For "power users," by all means, use Hughes.
