Exede Rib Off Internet

Does anyone else have Exede satellite internet? The salesman, based out of Alaska, guaranteed me a constant 25mbs on the download and a constant 3.0mbs on the upload. This morning the download is 0.8 and the upload is 1.1. But that's not the only problem. When my old service, a T-Mobile hotspot, was 1.1 on the upload, I could send one of my 11 newsletter emails, with 490 names in each, in about 1 minute. When Exede is 1.1mbs on the upload it takes 5.5 minutes each to send the same email. I called the main office and they said they would never tell a customer that the speeds were constant. Yeah, tell that to your sales people. Now I'm stuck with them for a year. Does anybody know a way out of this contract? To top it off, since I got the Exede, T-Mobile has upped their game and it's much faster now so I am paying for both. Shoots!! I feel so victimized.
