Thanks for your update, that sounds great! Glad the tech was able to confirm that the tree growth was also a factor. I had an inkling that could be it too since you mentioned this issue started a few months ago. When it gets warmer out, we tend fo get more cases like this, all because the leaves are growing back. I'll leave this thread open for a bit to let you post any further findings.
Thank you Liz. Everything seems to be running better. Most download tests are running in the upper teens or low twenties MBs. We were able to stream a show Saturday evening. It only stopped to buffer once, right at the end. It may have been the site (Direct TV) and it may have nothing to do with Hughesnet. Not sure which. As far as I am concerned, this thread can be closed.
Peace to all.
