I think that Hughes would "sooner eat dirt" than offer someone a legacy 9000 plan.
The "ugly truth" is that with the 9000 "Gen4 Wannabe" Top End Connect Pro plan with 10/10 GB (including uploads) this translates into 333 MB per day time period per day or else you are going to be either in FAP for that period or buying tokens.
Yes I know that some items can be scheduled with a download manager .. emphasis on some items.
Right now a subscriber could use the late night free time to get big items ... my last Win7 update was 150 Mb on just a single machine.
If a user "messes up" with a legacy plan ... good, you paid your dues .. and the next day you are back in business ... with the monthly plans .. if you don't know how to "budget" your monthly allotment or with the increased speeds,if you have a problem .. be it on the customers end or the Hughes end .. you are soon out of business.
Just my opinion of course.
I would rather have a daily allotment with free time than a monthly allotment. And I don't want to be locked into another 24 month commitment. I've been with DirecWay/HughesNet ever since I moved to our off grid property.
The tech was supposed to be here this morning but called about an hour ago to let me know he was on his way. He should be here in another hour. And of course I was just now able to connect with the net and see everyone's comments.
Wish me luck.
