  1. I pay $29.99/month on a grandfathered unlimited data plan with Verizon
  2. Got rid of Hughes... For years it was the same game: launch a new satellite up, overload it then lie to paying customers about performance issues. Hughes seems to hope that most people wont ever figure out they arent getting what they pay for....not to mention hope they dont understand data caps. Takes quite an effort to even get past the script readers for a key player in getting problems fixed. What a relief dont have that hassle any longer. Verizon 4G unlimited plan for me.
  3. I have noticed the test on this site showing very high scores on download for me, when in fact my speeds are very slow lately with HughesNet as well as very sluggish web browsing. Im not really surprised as this seems to be the trend with Hughes.....sell all you can get, worry later about providing the service? Last evening HughesNet tech support told me to turn off anti virus and disable firewall.....well today we will just file another BBB claim, simple enough.
  4. I have an unlimited Verizon Wireless 3g data plan for my phone, read somewhere that even though the unlimited data plans are grand-fathered speeds will be throttled after 5Gb of data. I only ever went past the 5Gb once.....myself did not see any reduction of speed. Does anyone know how this works?
  5. My speed has been between 2-4Mbps even during the peak evening hours.....overall not many issues since I have been on the Ka band. https://testmy.net/4LXDct9.png
  6. Im not sure about rollover, however my Download allowance or FAP limit has doubled.
  7. Wildblue?.....for real, got to be kidding me. My experience Hughesnet speeds have improved over the last years.
  8. I have went over my allowed 24 hour data usage with Hughesnet: Bamm.....FAPed :::..

  10. You mean the scientist couldn't convince you not to use your system only in the wee hours or that your system was installed incorrectly but worked in the early am hours.
  11. If your on the newer Ka band HN9000 modem....you should not be seeing that much slowdown as the lowest plan is 1000/128k mine is the 1600/250......working fine, however show me dsl and the sat is gone for sure. :::..

  12. It seems Hughes has again tweaked the service.....no more elite plan speeds. The FAP meter is now working again as well as a new reset time. The new reset time for me is around midnight, prior to the screw up the counter reset at 2:30pm.
  13. Yes, I did experience some down time on Saturday 4-3-10...... when I called in the idiots credited me $79 and schelduled a tech to come replace my transmitter. (Hughes assured me bad radio and possible dish alignment problem) A few hours later all was running fine, but did not notice the speed increase until today. Still getting great speeds, hope it last.
  14. It seems Hughes is getting more generous with the bandwidth? :::..

  15. you right thats what the topic is. and you posted on topic? uh no. So now your going to tell me what I shouldn't be posting about? wow. like the general said, what planet do you call home? why you should call WildBlue for help? 1) you never get your upload plan speed of 256k 2) your downloads reveal speeds of only 13% of your 1500 plan speeds...... 200k (download) and your tech support for how many years at what web site? once again wow! I'm 99% certain your a scientist in disguise. It apperars you are going with plan B and pretend there is n
