"My experience with this over six weeks - HN is adequate for general information service, spotty when attempting to shop, stream, etc. Better off on my cell phone. "
It must depend on where people live and how many phone towers are nearby....I can do just fine with HN, including streaming and shopping, while the internet service via the phone is pretty rotten. I can't stream with the data from the phone, unless I drive to a town.
Don't know if you all realize this OP is over 3 years old. If you'd like actual help it would be best to start a new post. Comparing cell data and satellite data isn't really asking for help which is what the Tech Support section is for.
