BFH uses about 250 meg in 2 hours. I just found out that a new wireless internet company is building towers in my county. The local government is subsidizing it. You chose your download speed package and get unlimited data for what seems to be a very reasonable monthly price. They hope to be up and running in the next month or two. I need to find out how much Hughes Net will charge me for a couple of months early. I may have to wait until September if the penalty is too high.

Cool, glad they're are giving you options now. 250 meg for 2 hrs isn't too bad really.

No it isn't. The only issue is the Windows 10 updates that can come through at any time and kill my data plan. With the extremely limited control they allow the end user, Microsoft screwed the pooch with the way they it up.

You can go into the network settings for your connection and set it as a metered connection, windows will then not download updates when you are connected to that network.

link to how to set it up.
