As this is supposedly a 'community' support site, and you are part of the community, perhaps it is your place to say what is entailed in the requisite tech support visit.
There aren't a lot of options as what is required by the tech visit, it could be:
1. replacing the modem
2. repositioning the dish
3. updating the modem software in a manner that can not be done remotely
Hopefully HughesNet becomes quite a bit more transparent and open regarding this issue.
While gokartergo24 is part of the Community, he is also an installer, and the two things are separate. That he volunteered the info he did is nice, as he doesn't have to divulge anything.
I just hope the issue is fixed soon.
Thanks,, I wish I could say more. I am just an installer. Not one of the engineers.. But what they have planned that I know of. Sounds like a really good start..
I'm sure if we word it properly, we could probably only pay for the service we are getting...

Dear Hughesnet, I am consistently receiving only 1/20th my Gen5 speeds. This issue has been going on for several months. As a result, I am only paying 1/20th of my bill until the problem is fixed.
"Your cooperation, patience, and understanding are much appreciated."
Signed, unhappy user

It works for them :-) Maybe it will work for us. What do ya think?
COME ON HUGHES, BE BETTER!
