Wildblue Censors Links to Stop the Cap!; We Are “Counter-Productive,” Says Satellite ISP

Phillip Dampier August 1, 2012 Consumer News, Data Caps, Editorial & Site News, WildBlue/Exede, Wireless Broadband 4 Comments

Wildblue’s customer forum will not allow its readers to link to Stop the Cap!, because in the view of Wildblue’s forum moderators, we are “counter-productive.”

We suspect the company is uncomfortable about exposing customers to the fact Wildblue is selling “broadband” satellite service with a “fair usage policy” so strict many customers cannot actually use the service for more than basic web browsing and e-mail. Wildblue consistently ranks  near the very bottom of broadband service providers rated by Consumer Reports (only HughesNet is worse).

The good news is Wildblue still allows customers to use Google. Most will have no trouble finding us even when the company spends time and effort censoring a direct link.
