My speeds are at 767 down load and 25-33 upload, direct wired into modem, spent an hour onphone with tech with no improvement.

I had the Hughes Net service installed 5 mos ago, my property is in an open field with zero trees, the dish is mounted on the ground so no obstalcles of the building. From day one I had internet but awlful speed. I have called custoemr support multiple times, the first time they blamed it on a storm the next time I spent an hour on the phone with a tech and direct wired into modem both times, I ju the last ime he said we'll do some repairs on our end and in aday or 2 o you'll get a call. It never happend. I was told I'd get a $25 reduction on my$90 bill. Frankly in should be an $85 reduction.......my service is running at 767 Down Load and 25-33 upload which is 97% worse than the avgrage Hughes net customer.

Jeff. 

If you haven't already, could you run some tests at testmy.net.  The instructions on what to do are in the link below.  Also, make sure that when you are running the tests, you use a single device connected directly to the modem.  NO ROUTER.  Also make sure to create the account, run the tests under that account and use the test size described.

Hello Jeff,

Thanks for posting today and welcome to the community. We definitely need some speed tests posted here to evaluate and better address your concerns. We'll look out for them. I'd also like to run some diagnostics on your site and make sure you are effectively communicating with the satellite. If you can provide me with a recent case number or your modem serial I can start investigating on your behalf. Looking forward to your reply.

Thank you,
Chris

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled https://community.hughesnet.com/hughesnet/topics/my-speeds-are-at-767-down-load-a....

I have tried on different laptops with and without VPN installed and both have similar results.  I don't have drop box on the main laptop and don't use iCloud, its a pc.  Usually there are only one or maybe 2 devices that ever connect at a time.  Usually when I run diagnostic with IT its one device and the one device with very little on it and its relatively new so the machine is not bogged down.  I am wide open to anything that will fix my speeds.  this address is not primary home so i am not there to be able to catch a level 5 IT person at a certain time but i plan on calling back in the next few days to connect to try.  I'm not far from my end of the rope with trying though the other day with level 4 IT the speeds were so pathetic even the Tech was shocked.  We've tried all kinds of things, direct wired to modem, safe mode.......   Is there a way to see the modem has the speed what if there was a wire issue between the dish and the modem?  Realistically If I don't find the answer soon I'll look back into Exede, I have it at my mountain home and its faster and no problem and frankly way cheaper.  I was sold on your newer satelittes, bandwidth and speeds but I have never received any of that since the service was installed.  somehting isn't right.  By the way they say my wireless router is working properly too.  so I'm clueless, this is not what i do for a living.

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for posting an update. What are your most recent speed test results. Based on your recent case history I don't see any calls in for support listing them. I see some attempts for our trouble shooting center to contact you, which were unsuccessful, but that's about it. Also, what website are you using to run the tests.

Me and the last level 4 tech ran it six times download is roughly 1.3 -700 mbs download and about 800kbs upload, I'm going to make an attempt to call level 5 today after 1 pm EST

I got # to call tech support level 5 and been on hold for 45 mins, the recording said 15mins, it has taken me since June to get to this level and the amount of delays and being put on hold, we'll call you back, oh your case # got cancelled we'll have to start over, once before I was on hold trying to get a level 5 rep and the phone cut off and couldn't get back then it was after hours.  its 9:08 est so that could happen tonite unless I can't sit here and listen to elevator music any longer.  I'm at 49 Mins now on hold.  All I want is service that is within the range of being acceptable for the ultra plan.

I ran speed tests just a few mins ago  1.2 Mbs download and 176 kps upload, this will no operate any decent web based applications.  I'm not on VPN, I'm on a PC, I'm direct wired into modem.  I think the refund policy may be nasty but if I don't get a level 5 tech to fix my problem, then I guess I'll be forced to craft my letter to the FTC and see what needs to be done to get a full refund.

This customer service process is the worst I have ever experienced!!! in 55 YRS!  unbelieveable, after 1 hr 5 mins phone disconnected.  Worst customer service company ever......

Lets get me on phone with level 5 and try one last time if they can't fix it you owe me a full refund.

Hello Jeff,

I'm sure we can help you here. Although I still am not seeing any of these recent calls come up in case notes. If you don't mind answering some of my questions I'm sure we can help get this resolved. Where are you running tests with our level 4 and 5 techs? Via www.testmy.net?
