Something else that is HORRIBLE, when bad weather is coming, I can't even watch tv because Dish goes outThen, regardless of whatever you decide to do about HughesNet, you need a service call to get your Dish Network antenna properly realigned.
I think Brianne's main problem with not being able to load Facebook and such is due to her data being used up and the speed being throttled back to 150Kbps. The streaming is just going to have to be curtailed. There's no way around that.
I'm glad that you have had a good experience and also that you knew what the service is and isn't capable of. I truly do feel bad for the people that aren't aware of what it means to have a capped service, then get it and are disappointed to find out there are certain things that they really can't do, or at least do fully and all the time. It's great when used within its means. I've had Hughesnet since 2004, but didn't upgrade to Gen4 until Feb of this year. I'm so glad I did.
There's a lot of info on these boards of what needs to be changed on one's computer and such so that they use much less data than otherwise, including what to adjust on a Windows 10 computer, how to adjust Facebook, ad blockers, etc.
It's a great service for those of us that don't have the traditional high speed services available to us. I'm glad you like it.
