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

Exede claimed that Viasat-1 can support 1.5 million customers. I estimate it can support 500,000 customers. Then there is the issue of whether Exede can find 500,000 people who want to spend money on their sorry, overpriced service.

At what speeds was that based?

I've seen old estimates at:

1.5 million total subscribers on one satellite (compared to 500,000 on
WildBlue-1)

Two million total subscribers on one satellite (compared to 500,000 on WildBlue-1)

***************

But, I have seen new estimates at around 650,000 users

Spice300... "Then there is the issue of whether Exede can find 500,000 people who want to spend money on their sorry, overpriced service."

I am betting no they can't. For people that do their homework, they will know better alternatives are coming.
