Wildblue Satellite vs. Verizon Broadband
We had Wildblue satellite with 10,000MB usage cap for $90/month, but it is SLOW. Talked 2 separate times to Verizon about their 5 GIG service. Asked how 5 gig compared to 10,000 megabytes. We were told that the Verizon 5 Gig was "10 TIMES WHAT WE HAD WITH WILDBLUE" and at much, much faster speeds. This was confirmed when my husband went to possibly sign up for the service. So, we canceled the wildblue and got the Verizon. SURPRISE!! 5 Gig is HALF of the 10,000 megabytes we had with Wildblue! So...what was supposed to cost us $60/month was now a $222.00 bill for ONE MONTH. Talked to them about it...they don't care. They have a 10,000MB plan so we would have the same capacity as Wildblue, but it is $199.00 per month! (Crazy, I can buy 2 of their 5 gig plans for $120/month, but ONE 10 gig is $199/month ???) Their suggestion was to go back with Wildblue and use our "plan" for a wireless phone. In other words...we duped you, but you are stuck sucker!
WARNING, WARNING, WARNING: A 5 GIG CAP WILL NOT NOT NOT LET YOU WATCH MOVIES, DO GAMING ETC. We are on the net a LOT, but we don't even do THOSE things! And, their retailers can lie through their teeth when you ASK them to educate you on the difference of gig vs. megabyte, etc., but they still hold YOU to a 2 year contract that isn't worth 2 cents to us!!
GRRRRRRRRRRR I now officially HATE Verizon!!
