  1. I usually test at 6MB, simply because it's a more accurate display of the performance I get, because most of my downloads are small. But here is an average speed for a 130MB download (and another user on the network was downloading a Windows Update (~50MB): :::..

  4. we raise chickens also, but not even 240, much less the extra 3 Zero's.
  5. Free upgrade from what ? Were you on the old Ku system ? DW-Series terminal ? If so, the smaller dish and 1 watt transmitter for the HN series is sufficient. The bigger dish and 2w xmit is only going to help during rain events, and the HN system already does a good job of mitigating rain fade by automatically increasing power on the xmit side. If it's bad enough weather to knock one of them offline, it's probably severe enough to kill the connection even with a bigger dish and 2w xmit. The only real benefit of having a bigger dish and 2w xmit is for larger commercial packages where upload

  7. Well that is interesting... I was not aware that the beta software code was live yet. You are using the same terminal code that the beta group is on, 082065ab - which contains the building blocks for a new TP. But the GenVersion of your terminal is important, because the new TP has not been ported to Gen3 code yet, and is only live on Gen4 terminals. You can find out which genVersion your terminal is by checking the Advanced LUI (System Control Center) and looking at the ESN number at the top left hand. If it starts with "1101" it is a Gen3, other number indicates a Gen4.

  9. Could you please specify what your commissioning software version is, along with the operating version too.
  10. There has been issue's with the Elite level service plan (Note: that Elite Plus & Elite Premium does not seem to be affected - maybe regular elite is oversold?), I am noticing quite a few reports of dramatic slowdowns on Elite, but as far as I know, only Gen4's were affected. Do you know what generation terminal you are using? I am using Gen3, and from what I have seen, Gen3's are unaffected. More reports from users stating their generation model terminal might be able to shed a little light on what's going on. I am on Elite Premium, and I do not notice any degradation of speeds durin

  15. It's a 2 year commitment. Contract's suck, we all know that. But not bad if Hughes is your only broadband provider. I do not have to worry about finishing out a contract if landbased broadband makes it to where I live, because it will never happen. So the commitment is not a problem, the 2 years I'm in a contract, is 2 years that I have some leverage (others may see it the other way), but I have used the contract's stipulations several times to gain advantages (such as an installation repair that went sour). People also must keep in mind that Hughes has a prime directive. PROTECT GUARANTE
