I have to agree with most of your statement ....
One thing that we see over and over is confusion or lack of understanding over the "bonus bytes" thing.
Common definition of "bonus" is .... something "extra" and the practical application of bonus bytes are anything but an extra.
How many times have we seen a new user with the idea that he/she has 20 GB and when that is used up they have 50 GB "extra" bonus bytes waiting in the wings.
It should (bonus bytes) be rename to something that better defines it .... Late Night Bytes, Over Night Bytes ... anything but "bonus". If a potential subscriber is not very savvy or the conversation is fast moving its really easy for that all important point to be lost ... that there are TWO distinct time periods.
For sure. I don't play online games so it doesn't bother me, but because of the latency there are a few quirks that I have here and there. I assume it's the latency, anyway. I have a problem with updating Malwarebytes, in that for some reason that server doesn't like Hughesnet very much and it takes anywhere from five to seven minutes to even begin to update. It just searches and searches. I also can't alter my Paltalk profile, though I haven't used it in a VERY long time. I actually don't know if it's the latency that causes these problems, or if it is something inherent to satellite internet, no matter the company.
BirdDog, I went on Malwarebytes to ask them about it taking so long to update, and they said it was because of having Hughesnet, but they didn't explain why. It still eventually updates, and once it starts updating only takes a few seconds, but MAN it takes for ever to find them. LOL.
It's funny that it finally does update, though. I figure if it had a problem with Hughesnet (or a sat ISP altogether) it wouldn't update at all, but I find it interesting that it eventually catches, and always at about the same time when checking. It's a head scratcher, that's for sure.
Although it was a good idea, it didn't make a difference. Still nearly seven minutes to find the update, but just a few seconds once it did. It would be interesting to find out what is causing this. Do you use Malwarebytes and does yours update quickly?
Yup I run it.
Just got a program update here a few days ago.
Trying it now and the updater has been running 3 minutes and still going .. this is new.
