Re: [WildBlue] after 6.5 years, FAPPED for the first time, and i
It's a temporary, free package increase they say. Still have to keep usage below 7.5 for when they shut it back down, don't know how long. They said they didn't know what was going on.
Head over to wildblueworld forum. There are like 6-7 threads open right now with people ranting and raving over unexplained usage spikes. I'm one of them -- usage date reset on 11/1, got a 70% usage warning on 11/3, by the time I called on 11/4 I was at 98%. Usage exceeded today. Called, complained, they reluctantly added 5gb today, and now 2hrs later, 0.6 of it's already GONE.
Something is SERIOUSLY WRONG with Exede's usage meter right now, but thus far, they're pretty tight lipped. I have a feeling they know there's a problem, but nobody's saying. LOTS of people are really, really mad right now.
Seriously -- go share your story over there. We need more people who know what they're talking about so that we can at least try to build a case for them 'unfapping' us.
My Wildblue FAP meter is not doing anything beyond its normal quirks. The problems might be limited to the Exede DAP meter. I am getting several slow page loads and page timeouts today.
