Well there are other internet providers beyond satellite so yeah they compete with them too now. Until recently we had no other choice but hughes but now we do. Tough luck for hughes.
Unlimited plans with Hughesnet are not a possibility at this point due to a lower amount of throughput compared to it's competition. That throughput has to be divided between many users, so it must be restricted, lest everyone's speed would be reduced to barely anything due to so many people trying to stream.
Hughesnet has a two lane road compared to most others having a 20 lane highway. Only so many cars can go down that two lane road or there's a traffic jam. They MUST restrict it so all of their customers can get on and use it.
Works fine for me. Not garbage here.
