We are allowing access to Facebook, however the receiving side is not so friendly. HughesNet can get to Facebook, however outside infrastructure is not making that trip easy and sometimes impassable. Again, HughesNet has already ensured we are free to access Facebook with no issues, but things out of our control are causing the inability to access Facebook.
Seriously...your tech departments answer is to post down detector? so the 22 people who reported facebook down in the past hour are probably ALL hughes net customers. I am having no issue accessing facebook through my phone and in surrounding areas ...I am only having an issue accessing it through Hughes Net at my house this tells me that YES this is indeed a hughes issue.
It has basically boiled down to what could be a routing issue that is well outside the control of Hughesnet. Nothing that Hughesnet can do at this point aside from wait and hope whoever between Facebook and Hughesnet decides to finally fix the issue.
