Re: Big Windows 10 Update August 2

Their are many months I don't use all of my data. When I don't, it would be nice if Hughesnet would roll that data over to the following month, just so I don't run out with a big update in the future.  Keep the price as is, and if a customer actually needs more each month, the customer needs to buy the upgrade. It is a win win for both Hughesnet and the customers.

If I lived in area that had unlimited cable I would use them instead of Hughesnet. Unfortunately, I don't. So I am stuck with them. I do have to admit though, since I signed up for Gen4 it has improved some. Thank God for small favors!

Is there any way we can keep Microsoft from updating our computers to W10? I don't want their damn program. I'm using Linux on one of my two machines. Will it be affected by this update?

rodrob43, GWX Control Panel is one way: http://ultimateoutsider.com/downloads/

The Linux machine will not be affected by any kind of Windows update.

So then tell me , why is it if you live in an area that has cable, you can get unlimited usage? I believe the cable companies get their data from satellites also.

HerEntrprs,

Completely different infrastructure and method of providing the service.

HerEntrprs,

To add, although cable uses satellites to relay their TV services and such, as do the individual networks they provide, the internet they provide is hardwired.  It doesn't use satellites.

Then what does it use? It has to come from somewhere.

Mostly fiber optic, these days, which has replaced actual wiring.
