Slow Speeds

So I was told I would always have at least 3 mbps and I’m barely at 1 can’t do anything with streaMing media. Looks like a cancellation is needed. Heck it took multiple attempts to post this message

Re: Slow Speeds



First, please make sure that you are not out of data, which you can do either here or with the HughesNet Usage Meter.  If you are not out of data, the reps will need some speed tests to be run in order to help, but they need to be run in a specific way: i.e. while signed in to a created account, using specific test sizes and in a specific manner.  The following are the instructions for the tests...



To help the HughesNet Customer Service Reps get a head start on your speed concerns, please create a account (if you do not already have one) and, while signed into that account, perform a batch of 3-5 tests during different parts of the day, then share your testmy Results page URL with us here.

Most important points to remember during this test:
-do the tests while directly connected to the HughesNet modem with a LAN cable (NO third party Router or Wireless devices can be used)
-disable the WiFi in the HT2000W modem while the speed tests are being performed
-the testing device should be the ONLY device connected to the HughesNet modem while testing
-use the manual 25MB size download test file
-if testing upload instead of download, use the manual 3MB size upload test file
-space each test at least 5 minutes apart
-post your testmy results URL here, it may look something like

For a more in depth guide on running the tests, please see this site.

The Reps are on M-F from approximately 9AM to 6PM EST. They will be the ones to address your speed issues, but they will need these tests to do so.

If you don't know how to disable the WiFi in the HT2000W modem, please see "How do I manage my built-in WiFi modem?" in this PDF. Please be sure to click "Save Settings" after unchecking "SSID Enable" for each of the four tabs individually (2.4Ghz, then 2.4Ghz Guest, then 5Ghz, then 5Ghz Guest).
