Hughesnet is ruining my sleep schedule

I'm already out of normal gigabytes so I have no choice but to resort to staying up till 2 am and using the free bonus bytes. And that's the issue.... I can't keep staying up till 2 am just to use the internet normally. It's so ridiculous. I can't even watch youtube videos without them buffering for 30 minutes. Hell I can't even download a file over 10 megabytes without having to monitor it constantly in case it cancels because of how (Please watch the language - Chris) slow my internet is. The free bonus period is nice and all but I hate having to stay up just to do all that kind of stuff.

Did hughesnet forget that most normal people never stay up till 2 am? Because of hughesnet (and summer time) I've started staying up till 5 am just to take advantage of it. (please dont tell me that bonus bytes is best used with download manager, I still have to deal with crappy internet throughout the month which tempts me to stay up)

Maybe hughesnet is engaged in some kind of psychological warfare with us. If they can tear aware at our psyche maybe we'll give up and throw our credit cards at them?

Can a new form of bonus bytes be made? Maybe if you run out of gigabytes it immediately takes affect but with a smaller amount , ex. 30 gigabytes.

Having to curse to make your point shows a lack of intelligence or education, maybe both.

Re: Hughesnet is ruining my sleep schedule

I only cursed once. And it really doesn't. I curse to emphasize a point I'm trying to make. You have 9k individual posts on a hughesnet forum, you have no room to talk (Language #2). I'd recommend you reavaluate how you spend your time, little bro.

Mr.Mason
Profanity is against Community guidelines and can result in you being suspended from the Community.

As too "little bro", BirdDog is a well respected member of this community and has helped countless users over the years. Much more productive than anything you have posted so far.

Now on to the points you raised in your topic:

I'm already out of normal gigabytes so I have no choice but to resort to staying up till 2 am
Some of the reasons you may be out of data so soon may include failure on your part to monitor your rate of data consumption. Hughes supplies several methods of doing so and I will post them here for you if need be.

As to not having any choices .... that is clearly inaccurate. You have the option of putting your money where your profanity ridden mouth is and purchase some Tokens.
If you need assistance in the procedure of buying and applying the needed Tokens you need only ask.

Did hughesnet forget that most normal people never stay up till 2 am? Because of hughesnet (and summer time) I've started staying up till 5 am just to take advantage of it.
No they did not forget. You failed to understand that the world is not your oyster and you are not the center of the universe.
Your reasoning and understanding falls apart in not grasping the fact that the satellites are machines, in orbit, non-expandable, non-repairable. As machines they have capacity limits. Its called data throughput. Think about it.

Can a new form of bonus bytes be made? Maybe if you run out of gigabytes it immediately takes affect but with a smaller amount ,
Already done, its called "Available Token Bytes".
You subscribe to a data capped service ... when you have consumed your monthly contracted data amount you are FAPPED. You can purchase more data.

You might look into your browsing and downloading habits as well as the condition of your machines in regards to AdBlock and Script blocking extensions as well as virus/malware activity.

There is something you are missing. I presently have  47 GB of my 50 GB Anytime Bytes remaining as well as all 50 GB of Bonus Bytes.

Now here is the kicker: I also have 28 GB of Token Bytes setting in reserve.

(please note: this post was able to express thoughts and ideas without profanity)

"sain" = sane 

And in the context you wrote it should be "insane".

Again, education. At least use a spell checker, man. Wait, maybe you are talking about making the sign of the cross. Now I'm confused.

Resorting to petty spelling corrections would be a great insult...in 2005. I'm moving on, arguing with you will only feed into your ego fed by 9k posts on a hughesnet forum.
