Worst Ever

I hate that where I live I have to have Hughesnet for a internet provider. It is the worst ever. I have had internet when I lived in New York, Spectrum was one of them and they charged me the same amount every month and I never had slow internet. I never had to purchase tokens. Hughes is ridiculous on their pricing. What they want 180.00 for I was getting in New York for 55.00 a month, no crashes, no slow-mo, no interruptions. I am so over this company. My contract is up in seven months. Hopefully by then another service provider will come into our vacinity. They are talking putting up lines. I hope they do and then Spectrum can give Huges a run for their money. Come on Huges, you know you're ripping us off. Shame on you. Greed is not becoming.

Comparing cable internet to satellite internet is like comparing a 20lb watermelon you grew in your back yard to a small exotic fruit you had to import from the Orient.  

 

Satellite internet has much less capacity than ground bases services, so it's more subject to the effects of congestion.  It can't be expanded like ground based service can.  It has twenty times the latency, which can negatively affect some activities.  It's also considerably more expensive, per capita, to both provide and maintain.  

 

Good luck with your new service.

Re: Worst Ever

I just had installed & seems streaming TV on this service is a constant issue. I even connected a LAN to my TV & still can't stream 1 TV show. Seriously debating going back to no internet at all!

Re: Worst Ever

You may want to consider cancelling the service, then.  Hopefully you have some other options.

Think this thread needs to be locked down... becoming too much of a pity party.
