Future of Hughesnet.

Re: Future of Hughesnet.

No 4G LTE where I live.  EDIT: Nope, that wasn't accurate. There IS 4G LTE, only it doesn't work well at all due to very few towers. Most of the time it is just unavailable.

Same here... Weak and spotty 4G signal.  But that's for a cellphone.  A cell modem/router doesn't have the limitation on antenna size and amplification power.  Plus, they're putting in new towers all the time.

HughesNet still has the edge on price compared to other non-wired options.  But, if the others actually provide real broadband that enables streaming, etc., that advantage may not be suficcient.

Re: Future of Hughesnet.

I've been in the area for a long time and so far, no new towers. I guess in my area people like living the paleolithic way. Smiley Happy  But in a pinch I can drive 20 minutes and get Verizon 4G, which I know a lot of people who live in remote areas can't do at all, as they're much more isolated.
