Re: LOSS OF MB'S

I've found using the Apple utility Activity Manager that FB and Hugesnet's home page suck up MB's. I've read that the new versions of Windoz spend lots of background processing checking for updates and downloading. Only cure, shut off auto updates? Check with forum for Win experts, as I threw my PC into the trash ten years ago. Never looked back!
 P.S. I have the 5/50GB plan and have never run out. I use the net about 2 hours a day, when we used FB we bought tokens every month with the 50GB plan, movies are just too big, 4gb each?  Guess move to town is only way to stream movies? If only there were some worth watching!

Re: LOSS OF MB'S

You'll be better served if you start a new topic instead posting here, but there is plenty of info on what kinds of things can cause data loss. 

If you have HughesNet Voice, then your phone should work, whether or not you've used up all your data. Please start a new topic so we can help troubleshoot what the problem is.
