WiFi Booster

Does the booster use our data from our plan in addition to what we are using while on our computer. Does it use data sitting ideal if we are are not using our computer.

The HughesNet WiFi Booster itself doesn't use any data.  What it does is extend the range of the existing WiFi from the HT2000W modem, so any data that you would normally use via WiFi would still be the same while using the WiFi booster.  


In reality, though, it could actually help to save you a little data, but that all depends on whether you were using more data than normal due to a weak WiFi connection that caused dropped data packets.  If that was happening, you may see a small benefit, data wise. 


Hope this helps.  🙂
