Re: Speed

Welcome to Hughesnet. Words like S-L-O-W, unreliable and intermittent barely begin to describe it. And don’t forget expensive. Laws of physics account for the some of the issues—horrid lag, insufficient bandwidth (especially in prime time or during widely watched events—e.g., Sunday football), natural events like rain that interfere with receiver or just overcast that slows the system even more. But when you’re somewhere that has no better service available, as my wife says, “It’s country living. Get used to it.”

Re: Speed

Satellite internet has limited bandwidth, and if everyone wants to watch football, or stream a show, the limited bandwith goes fast and things get slow. Limited bandwidth accounts for issues during prime time because everyone is taxing the limited system.

The laws of physics are responsible for the latency, not the bandwidth. 

Do you have any alternatives that you could go with? Depending on where you live, you may have wifi provided by phone companies.
