Upgrading from home to Pro Plan...Is it worth it?

Recommended Posts

Well I just upgraded from the DW6000 home plan to the HN7000S pro plan. I am very disappointed.

Yes indeed I was Tommie. I have no idea what has happened. I have a fresh install of Vista right now without any tweaks at all except for Firefox tweaks.

tm24ns58 it would be likely to say you may need to tweak the system (dish alignment) for the new modem especially if you changed transponders. I don't remember Hughes telling anyone about this since there is really no way of knowing until after the upgrade but I do remember some having realignments after upgrades. Also sometimes it may take a day or two for the system to stablize, it does some seff adjusting.

Is it worth the extra $20 bucks a month to upgrade from the home to the Pro plan at Hughes? Will I see any noticable differences do you think?

Hit or miss if it will improve, more toward the miss side. I would save the cash as you would be better off with out the upgrade.

I wanted to come back and post my speed today. It was not long after my other post that my speed tweaks took effect. Below is my speed today. This test was taken at 4:11pm EST. So that is peak time. I am getting very good results in my opinion.
