Re: I paid my bill but my internet is still running slow

Where are you seeing this "your internet is poor" message?  

Could it be that you've run out of data?  That would make things slow.

Paying your bill doesn't have any effect on whether your service is "poor" or not.  Who or what is it that said your "internet is poor"?  

 

Regarding Netflix, if you're streaming in HD, make sure to turn off, or snooze, the Video Data Saver, or you'll encounter buffering.  Also, please ensure that you are not out of data and being subject to the Fair Access Policy.  You can view your data level here.   

 

If you're using WiFi, please also ensure that you have a good WiFi signal in the area of the device you're using to stream.  You can do so with the HughesNet Mobile App, which you can get from Google Play or the App Store.  

 

Lastly, while streaming in HD is possible, it's recommended to stream in SD or lower to save data, as doing so in HD can use a lot of data.
