HughesNet HELP!!!

Recommended Posts

On January 25th my download speeds went from a fairly constant 1.2 Mbps to a constant 525 Kbps or less all of the time. I have been running speed tests on the HughesNet site so tech support could see what was going on. My case got escalated all the way up to Tier 4 and then they escalated it to the NOC. I have been told that there are no problems with my hardware and there is no problem with the sat. I am on. When I call back to get updates on the case the only thing the customer care reps. do is start to act confused and say there has been no progress on the case. Does anyone have any clue as to what might be going on? I am on AMC 9 with the Small Office Plan and an HN7000s modem. Ever since I have been on the business plans my speed has never been this bad for this long without getting any improvement.

the computer is clean. It is free from spyware, adware, viruses, and I have cleared my cache. I restart my modem about once a week. I went and checked the dish and the only thing in front of it is a clear blue sky and the feed horn is dry inside and out. My signal strength iss 89.

AMC 9 used to be my bird too. But its quite possible its just been over sold like the rest of them. Why I was glad to switch to EVDO.

You sure they didn't accidently put you one the home package. If it is constant that might explain it. They shouldn't have, but it would make sense. Since it is 500 DL.

When is your contract up, and is EVDO available? (verizon or sprint, sprint beng the better one )  :grin2:

I had thought that they might have put me on the wrong plan, but when I asked them about it they said I was on the Small office plan. Is there anywhere I can go that would reflect which plan I am on so I could see for myself? My contract is up right now, it ended last year. EVDO is not available unfortunately. The only isp's that are available to me to my knowledge are hughesnet, wildblue, and at&t dial-up. I am in college right now and I am taking a course online along with my on campus classes. A major problem that I am having is that hughes is going so slow that it times out when I try to login to my campus account. I talked to campus tech support and they said that with satellite internet, you need to have a fast connection to compensate for the latency so it won't time out.

I have not been on it for about a year. But if it was me they'd either be giving me my speeds, or put me on the home package and not be paying the extra for nothing. And I'd want my extra money back for the last 2 months.

I'd say keep looking, something new will come along soon for you to use and kick them to the curb.

Try this map just n case, you might be closer than you think to EVDO.

Thanks for all the help Tommie, it is much apreciated. From a business standpoint, HughesNet has a golden ticket with the line of their subscriber agreement that states"Speeds are not guaranteed." Whoever came up with that should be given a huge raise by the company and then put out on the street so HughesNet customers could get a chance to beat the crap out of him repeatedly. With that little line hughes gets to legally screw over their customers and there is nothing we can do about it.
