HughesNet... low speeds and not enough data to do anything worthwhile...

HughesNet... It's fast enough to browse, but no streaming video or music, it's too slow and you will burn through all your data allowance weeks before your service resets. Pretty much get ready to pay $100 a month for $20 worth of service... the bulk of your data will be available only between the hours of 2am and 8am... garbage.

Re: HughesNet... low speeds and not enough data to do anything worthwhile...

Good morning Rory

Welcome to our community and thank you for posting your concerns. We're here to help you get your system running the way it should be and help you get the most out of it. What websites do you prefer to use for streaming video and music, and what devices to you have in your home? Some websites do not offer the ability to lower resolutions or minimize bandwidth impact and can really slow you down or eat up your bytes. Alternatively, maybe our community members can offer suggestions on how to download certain things you want to watch or listen to during the bonus hours without having to stay awake. 

Looking forward to hearing back from you.

Thanks,

Amanda
