Tonight I thought I'd do the speed test a little earlier in the evening ... about 6:45 PM local time. To my surprise, my first download test resulted in 15.26 Mbps. A little more than the speed I'm paying for. Awesome! I did an upload and got 1.16 Mbps. OK. I decided to come here and post the results. While trying to log in to myhughesnet.com, the modem froze and I couldn't do anything online. I rebooted the modem and reconnected. i ran speed tests again. Now I have 2 Mbps download and 1 Mbps upload. results here: http://testmy.net/quickstats/euchredad63
As always, these tests are done after rebooting the laptop, clearing it's cache, and directly wiring the laptop to the HughesNet modem.
Amanda, are you still monitoring? I am actually home this week so I could test regularly. I will be gone next week. I would LOVE to use this service if you could actually get it working for us.
Thank you! I received a voice message call back from HughesNet! And it was in the evening ... which is great since that's when it is slow. However, it was Friday night and we were out. And as I said earlier, we are now (in about an hour) going to be leaving for a week.
If Amanda or someone helped make that call back happen, thank you! Can I get one in the evening a little over a week from now? I'm upset that I missed the call and hoping it can happen again April 3rd or after.
