(*In this case, we’re defining “All night long” as 12 midnight – 5 a.m.)
Every night during the wee hours, we’re giving Exede customers a free hall pass to enjoy their superfast Internet service just a little bit more. Or a whole lot more — it’s up to you. From 12 midnight – 5 a.m., you can take advantage of 5 hours of free Internet usage to download movies, games, music, and software updates. In addition, you can upload photo galleries, blog postings, videos, perform online backups, and a whole lot more. During this time period, the meter isn’t running, so your late night usage doesn’t count towards your monthly data allowance. Here’s how it works.
When it’s past bedtime, people use less interwebs. With all that free bandwidth, we thought it was silly to not pass it on to you.
Q: Will I see my Late Night usage in the Exede Usage Meter?
A: No. During the Late Night Free Zone, your usage will not be counted. Therefore, you shouldn’t see the Usage Meter changing between 12 midnight – 5 a.m local time.
Q: What if I need my speeds restored now? I can’t wait for Late Night!
A: You always have the option to Buy More. For $9.99 per GB, you can get additional data allowance for use outside of the Late Night Free Zone.
Q: I purchased Exede through DISH or my local telephone company (NRTC). Do I get Late Night Free Zone?
A: If you receive your monthly bill from ViaSat (provider of Exede), you get this feature. If you receive your monthly invoice from another provider, please contact them directly to determine if this feature is currently available.
Join the discussion on our WildBlue/Exede World forum and Facebook. We’ve asked customers to tell us what apps they prefer to use to make the most out of the Late Night Free Zone. We’ll post the favorites here soon.
