HUGHESNET LOOK AT THIS

Recommended Posts

That's a very impressive downlink speed for a satellite link, especially for the time when most people are online.

 

For the upload test, I recommend trying a larger block size.  On the Upload page, select '6MB' for the manual test size drop-down and allow a minute or two to complete.

Actually, during that time it's not too bad.  I've found, at least for my beam and gateway, that it slows down the most somewhere around 8:00pm to 11:30pm or so.  Then right around 2:00am.

 

For the upload test, you can use 6MB, but for the speed of Hughesnet that's really a waste of data.  The 2MB size lets it run long enough to average out the spikes and dips.  The engineers there recommend 2MB for upload and 12MB for download, though I use 15MB for download as the 12MB test almost always upsizes to the 30s or 40s, wasting data.
