Step into The Free Zone.

Unmetered uploads and downloads daily.

If you have an Exede Classic, Evolution, Essential or select Liberty plan, then you get a hall pass for unmetered internet use for five hours daily. Classic plan customers get the Free Zone from midnight to 5 am. Exede Evolution and Essential plan users get it from 3 a.m. to 8 a.m. Liberty 12, 25 and 50 plans have a 3 a.m. to 6 a.m. Free Zone.
*Note: Plans not available in all areas.

The Free Zone gives you unmetered internet during certain hours to download movies, games, music and software updates. You can upload photo galleries, blog postings and videos, perform online backups, and do a whole lot more. The meter is turned off, so none of your internet activities count toward your monthly data allowance.


How does the Free Zone work?

  • 100% UNMETERED data usage from 12 midnight – 5 a.m. (Classic), 3 a.m. – 8 a.m. (Evolution or Essential) or 3 a.m. – 6 a.m. (certain Liberty Plans) per your local time zone.
  • Both DOWNLOAD and UPLOAD usage are unmetered.
  • Regular speeds are restored during the Free Zone. If you have already used up your Data Allowance for the month, you can still use the Free Zone at regular speeds.

Why do we have Free Zones?

When it’s past bedtime or early in the morning, less people are using the internet. With all that open bandwidth, we thought it was silly to not pass it on to you.

Do all plans have the Free Zone?

No. Only Classic, Evolution, Essential and some Liberty plans have the Free Zone. If you’re on a Freedom plan, you should have plenty of data to get what you need done without a Free Zone.
