HughesNet data tokens

Bill Solomon

Recommended Posts

Okay, now please explain something to me? I got an email from HughesNet to purchase data tokens. It says on this email that “ data tokens help keep you connected at full speed”! Now, why do I pay for a high speed data connection and they are saying basically I won’t get a full speed connections. Unless I purchase Data Tokens to keep my service at its highest speed? Something’s fishy here with HughesNet! 
 I would like to know what I pay for every month? That I get these ads saying this?

here is the email:

Hi Bill


I'm not sure about your base plan, but these data tokens sound like a lot of the satellite/hot spot plans in the US. Essentially, on these plans you purchase a certain amount of data that isn't throttled. After the data cap, either your connection is throttled, de-prioritized, or very expensive.


I'm not sure where you're starting and what you're prepared to do to avoid this

Thanks , but it’s just HughesNet really sucks. I pay for a high speed line and get throttle back makes no since! The highest speed I have ever seen with HughesNet is 15 Mbps. At night I’ve seen 9 Mbps. Makes no since! Weather is clear not a cloud in the sky. (Wow, that sounds like lyrics to a song?) Anyway very unhappy with my decision to go with HughesNet. I’m going to talk to AT&T next to see what they can give me. And pay to get out of HughesNet! I don’t have a lot of choices where I live. Xfintiy does have cable out here. I’m not in the Boony’s. They are plenty of homes to service. But xfinity does see it that way!
