    BRUCE AT THE ROCK got a reaction from TedCarter in WHY IS HUGHESNET SO HORRIBLE !   
    I'm just prayin' for the day someone drags a cable to my front door.

    I've had an FCC complaint against these people - Spent HOURS AND HOURS on the phone w/them.
    Things go OK for a day or 2 every once in a while then right back down into the toilet.
    I've heard since Dec. 2015 "Yeah, they've been having problems w/that beam !"
    Is there a sane answer out there ?
    Follow the dollar and you'll always find your answer.
    I can't stand this dial up speed - No place to go but Verizon Wireless w/same speeds.
    There must be someone out there in the brain trust that can answer my question.
    Thanks !

    Use TESTMY.NET to determine your speed.
    INSIST on it.
    The Hughesnet speedtest site is fake.
    Several years ago they insisted on the TESTMY.NET site.
    They've developed their own testing site and now, unless you INSIST on TESTMY.NET they'll use their own fake results from their fake site.
    I've spent hundreds of hours on the phone w/these people.
    I know them well - There is a resolution for your wows but it takes LOT's of time.
    Expect an hour every time you call them - Have a hard wire cable so you can wire the router directly to your PC
    Tell your family you won't be available for and hour or so.
    Don't get mad, don't yell, don't get frustrated - Work w/every thing they're asking you to do.
    Their call center is in Brownsville, TX, I believe, so you'll talk to nice folks but not local.
    Get - Did I say "GET" the case # - They record and document every second of their conversation with you.
    Make sure you're polite but firm - They usually will work with you - Just keep in mind the peep's you talk to have limited ability to fix your issue - But I really like talking to them - They really do want to fix your issue.
    Take notes as you go through your conversation w/them.
    Get names - Note times.
    This won't be the only time you'll call them - It's a game - Learn to master it and you'll win.
    Good luck !
