Re: [Exede] HN7000S -> Exede questions.

That location is close to the edge of the spot beam, but it would be either spot beam 339 or 331 which both provide Exede-12.

There is a 24 month service commitment which you can buy out of at some fraction of the remaining term.

Exede and Wildblue have a Network Management Policy (NMP) that slows the speeds during periods of congestion. On Wildblue's Value Pack it makes downloading and streaming perform poorly, but there may not be as much of a problem on Exede-12 because it is much faster. If you stop transferring data, your speed is restored in 30 minutes to an hour. The NMP probably will not be active during the LNFZ because it is not prime time. For me the NMP stopped triggering last spring but returned last summer.
