Le'sigh, it took 4-5 years before Jupiter One got to being oversold, you really think they have signed another 1 million people only Jupiter Two in the few months it has been online? -.-

 

Subscriber numbers don't matter, what matters is the plans sold to subscribers and how they pull down data.

 

The fact you admitted HughesNet oversubscribed another bird, is an admision they have no probelm with oversubscribing the new path.

Knowing that they oversold on the ES17 isn't the same as saying that the ES19 is already oversold.  A bird with a higher throughput oversold in less than 1/8th the time?  Don't think so.  

 

Assumptions aren't facts.  Get your FACTS straight.

My opinion only, they are having growing pains with the new bird and ground infrastructure. Nothing to do with overselling the design capacity of the satellite itself. Again, my opinion.

I'm with you on that.  And, though it's no doubt frustrating to those affected, growing pains aren't surprising, espcially with something as complicated as this system.  

 

Hopefully they'll get it ironed out soon.

Re: Download Speed Problem

My business cap on:


HughesNet is not that huge of a company, Echostar is. It is why huge corporations have smaller subsidiary companies such as HughesNet. If one dies, the whole corporation doesn't necessarily go down.

 

That said, HughesNet would have been very stupid to invest capital on ground equipment before the satellite was successfully launched, in orbit, tested and online. Launching a communications satellite is still a very risky endeavor.


So, I have a feeling there is still a lot of upgrading going on when it comes to the ground side of things like the gateways, servers and pipes into/out of the gateways.

 

I'd bet the competition hasn't invested much in ground infrastructure to support their new unlaunched satellite.


My screwy opinion again. Could be full of doo-doo.

That makes sense.  I'm sure they're still doing a lot more fine tuning than any of us are aware of, and even on beams/gateways that don't seem to be, or may not be, having any issues at all.  No doubt a work in progress.  

 

I can just imagine what the headaches are going to be like if/when they get that LEO system that Hughes is somewhat involved with up and running in the future.  Eek!

Re: Download Speed Problem

Thanks everyone for your opinions, but please start a new thread if you want to carry on those discussions. I created this thread as requested by support and have been working with them to resolve the issue here so I'd rather not get constant updates that don't relate to solving the problems..

Sorry here to, we got off topic a bit. Is what happens on public forums though. Do hope they fix it to your satisfaction.

No problem, I just wanted to keep this for my issue since Liz has been helping and all the responsese kept making me hope there was a final solution.
