FCC Broadband Report Ranks HughesNet #1 in Meeting Advertised Performance

Folks, it works, pure and simple. If your system isn't working up to par, then it can and should be fixed.

"Folks, it works, pure and simple. If your system isn't working up to par, then it can and should be fixed"

Very true.

It is the very nature of computers and networks to have issues crop up.

Some are hardware related (modem, ODU, Gateway) while others are software related. Example some people are having connection issues after installing one of the latest Microsoft updates.

Some issues such as speed can be Hughes network related.

Any issue needs proper troubleshooting to determine and correct the root cause. One of the best ways to do that is to post right here in the Hughes Community.

Some folks are looking for "blame" while the rest of us are looking for "cause" and some of course just don't get it.

Shhhh!

Many moons ago when I repaired ATC radios every once in awhile a problem would come along that took me weeks to solve. One bad component would lead to another, then another, then another........you get the idea.

Those experiences taught me new troubleshooting techniques and patience even after I thought I knew everything there was to know about fixing radios. 

Satellite internet is so much more complicated than those radios, and then there are the customers devices. Said before it is amazing it all works as well as it does. And the satellite is 22K+ miles up in space, not on a workshop bench where it can be repaired hands on.

And then there are some with truly legitimate issues that others scoff at, claiming, incompetence, faulty equipment, ignorance, etc. After the technician left here last Tuesday, the culprit is now known; a dieing satellite. A lot of people have put significant effort into attempting to help me with my data and speed issues and I sincerely thank you all. It is now wait and hope for a successful launch of the replacement satellite.

"Spaceway 3 dying?"

Overloaded? probably. Older technology? for sure. But dying? I haven't read this anywhere. Can you post the link to the source for this information?

There had been at least two major shutdowns of Spaceway3 . Hard to say how many functions are assigned to redundant systems. That might affect capacity .

Fake news is great. Throw it out and see if it sticks.

Spaceway 3 is old and doesn't have the throughput capacity of the newer satellite but it is alive.

Who knows, maybe they will give people who stay with Spaceway unlimited data once the newest satellite is up and operational. My contribution to fake news. : )
