Exciting news for satellite internet users!
From 12 midnight to 5AM, local to your installation time zone, you can download an unlimited amount without it affecting your monthly bandwidth quota. Woot!
I rate this new feature 5/5 stars!
NOTE: HughesNet has offered this for a long time on many of their plans and it is one of the main reasons I really liked Hughesnet… the NEW high speed HughesNet, probably faster than Exede, is also reportedly going to have a (inferior) nighttime download zone of 2AM-8AM local to your time zone. The reason I say it is inferior is that the nightly download time is limited to an amount equivalent to your regular plan. More info here, http://www.dslreports.com/shownews/New-Hughes-Gen-4-Satellite-Broadband-Prices-Unveiled-120885 Example: Exede 7.5GB monthly allowance + 500GB nightly downloading vs. gen4 HughesNet 10GB monthly allowance + 10GB nightly bonus bytes = 507GB vs 20GB!
Exede now offers an unlimited download time period,
