For many broadband Internet users, fully utilizing their connection is hampered by usage caps, which restrict how much data a user can send or receive in a given time frame (usually per month). With this in mind, many providers offer ways for users to get around these caps, usually through special plans or one-time increases in the cap. However, Exede has recently launched a service that offers more flexibility for heavy bandwidth users, particularly those who are nocturnal.
Known as the Late Night Free Zone, this service from Exede essentially turns off the meter in the late night hours. Since most users in any given time zone aren’t using the Internet after midnight, Exede allows users to use all the bandwidth they can handle between the hours of midnight and 5 AM, without restriction, for uploads and downloads. Even users who are under speed restrictions due to plan limitations can take advantage of the Free Zone, as Exede lifts those restrictions during the midnight-5 AM span. Furthermore, Internet use during those late-night hours isn’t counted against caps.
