When looking roughly 35 degrees above the angle arm I think I may be okay. Only time will truly tell. BTW, is 118 on a cloudy day a good signal? I've seen it at 124 on a clear day.
I'm about right where I put the red dot on beam 24, so I'm getting a good signal. I know that during off peak times my speeds are fantastic.
No, not at all. I was just posting my beam footprint and demonstrating that I am getting a great signal because my speeds during off peak are great. They are less during peak, but I've been with Hughesnet a long time and expect that as I understand what happens during peak demand times. I am not complaining at all. I'm perfectly happy with the service I receive.
To wit, I'm at somewhat of a loss as to how, out of these posts, you got that my main complaint was speed issues.
Actually, my peak time speed are usually around 3-5Mbps (but they actually seem to be improving), but I sometimes reach over 20Mbps during off peak. It definitely gets lower during peak, but I'm still happy with it. I wait until off peak if I have to download something large, so 3-5 is plenty for browsing, which is mostly what I do, anyway. I'm happy with it. I went on earlier and downloaded a program at about 7:30pm and it was downloading at nearly 10, so that was great. It actually seems like it's speeding up with successive days. LOL.
I actually had a VERY bad experience one time with Hughesnet with not leaving mostly well enough alone and regretted ever calling and complaining, so unless the speeds really become a problem, I am fine with what I have.
It's miles above the old Pro plan that I had with maximum speeds of 1.5Mbps, and it's nearly the same price.
