Re: Internet for $100



To get help with speed issues, the reps will need some speed tests to be run to not only verify the issue, but also to help point them to the issue.  The protocols for the speed tests are as follows....



To help the HughesNet Customer Service Reps get a head start on your speed concerns you should create a account and, while signed into that account, perform a batch of 3-5 tests during different parts of the day, then share the account results link with us here.

Please keep in mind that HughesNet will only accept and the official HughesNet speed test results. Tests from other sites like are not accepted due to the compression technologies and latency that satellite deploys.

Most important points to remember during this test:
-do the tests while directly connected to the HughesNet modem with a LAN cable (NO third party Router or Wireless devices can be used)
-disable the WiFi while the speed tests are being performed
-use the 25MB size download test file 

-If testing upload instead of download, you must use a 4MB size upload test file
-space each test at least 5 minutes apart
-post your testmy results URL here, it may look something like

For a more in depth guide on running the tests, please visit:

The Reps are on M-F from approximately 8AM to 5PM Eastern. They will be the ones to address your speed issues, but they will need these tests to do so.


If you are unaware of how to disable the WiFi in the HT2000W, the steps to do so are in this PDF, in the section titled "How do I manage my built-in Wi-Fi modem?"
