Does HughesNet offer any RollOver Data plans?

In the old days, I would receive a complimentary Token for not exceding my data plan (FAP)

Is there a plan that will "rollOver" unused Data Useage from the previous month?

Actually, that 3GB of token data was given to everyone who was on a part of the system that experienced the seven or eight hour outage on the night of 1/1 to 1/2.  I'm not sure if it was everyone on the Echostar 19 satellite, but I think it may have been.  

 

Nevertheless, you'll keep those 3GB of tokens until you use them.  Smiley Happy   And, with regard to the tokens, keep in mind that they are automatically used when you run out of data, and before going into FAP.  

 

I have a Verizon home phone.  I want a few shares of that stock.  LOL.  J/K.  God knows I've earned them at $70 - $90 per month over the last 13+ years.  Smiley Tongue

No, there are no data rollover plans with HughesNet.  The only data that rolls over from month to month is Token data, if you have any.

Thanks for that. I feel a little less important now. I do remember The outage now that you mentioned it. I lost a bid on ebay cause of it. Smiley Indifferent

The bonuses were for employees, you knew that. Old customers get a bill increase about this time of year. Smiley Sad  And I still cant believe they got out of the e-mail business. More into video streaming these days.

 

You did solve the mystery of where the 3 Gb came from. I'll give you two Kudos

Are you sure you're on the ES19 satellite?  

 

To see, take a look at the Satellite box on the following page and see if it indicates Echostar 17 or Echostar 19.... http://192.168.0.1/#!/home/information

 

AFAIK, the outage affected only those on the Echostar 19 satellite, and though I don't know if it was the entire ES19 system, I know it was widespread on that system.
