Re: COVID-19 and HughesNet...

Might be a good idea not to recommend people turn their data saver off for the foreseeable future.

In fact, it might be a good idea to do the opposite.

Yes. Elsewhere, @GabeU recommended that HN block turning off, or pausing, the VDS.

Re: COVID-19 and HughesNet...

Even when I'm supposed have the high speed I only get 2-3 mbps. This was before covid-19. I've had all of my high speed data completely disappear when my family wasn't even home and nobody even using the service. They only care about the money and take advantage of because they know they're the only provider in these rural areas.

Re: COVID-19 and HughesNet...

Would you like to have help with your speed issues? Open a ticket under Tech Support  and explain what's going on, providing as much detail as you can.  Be prepared to run some tests on your network so people here can help you figure out what's going on.  

 

Remember they're the only provider in rural areas because companies like Comcast don't care about your business or you.

I wish people wouldn't make ignorant comments.
