Do you like it? How much do you pay? Do you know your upload/download threshold/limits?

We have Verizon broadband with the usb card. Our download is 5gigs not sure the upload but we pay $65-70 a month for it.

I'm not talking about speed. Do you have unlimited usage?

Have you tested it at speedtest.net?  It will tell you what your speeds are (both d/l and u/l).  It can be brutal (esp. if you pay for 1 mbps like we do.. at almost $50 a month!!).  Our upload speed is ridiculous.. it's not even a full mb.. it's kbps.  SMH.  We get it through our local phone company, and we live in a tiny, tiny, tiny town.  It's a cable modem.  We can't get anything else (except Hughes.net but that would be worse than what we have, if that's possible.. lol).

My brother has Wildblue satellite internet, which is what we are thinking of switching to. I've never seen any problems with them.

I was wondering because a lot of people stream movies through their internet and we tried that when we first got Verizon and were under the assumption we had unlimited data. Our first bill was $13,000. Yes they took it off.

Oh wow.. that's crazy.  We have Verizon for our cell phone but we've never used more than.. 2 gigs of data.  We do get the unlimited data but heard about their cap.  Did you have a heart attack when you got that bill?  I would!
