For years we had an older HughesNet 15 GB plan and almost never ran out of data. "Upgraded" to Gen 5 30 GB plan and, over the past year, have exhausted the 30 GB with a week remaining in the cycle almost every month. I'm the only user and haven't changed my use habits - don't watch movies, etc. Simply web data use.
While I notice a slight speed advantage with Gen 5, it's nothing remarkable. What bothers me is that despite the claimed speed advantage and doubling my download package, I spend a week, or so, with significantly slower response. According, I regret the "upgrade" and wonder about the system's use monitoring accuracy.
Am just curious if others have a similar experence.
