Slow downloads and text message with images

I’ve run multiple speeds tests and amazed at the stated “download” speeds, but consistently wait for items to load. Particularly frustrating are iMessages with any photo or images attached. In a recent “text chat” with HughesNet, after the standard un plug and plug in again request, was informed that iMessage may not be compatible with the system. At $150 a month with download caps, I’ve about had it. Suggestions??

Re: Slow downloads and text message with images

Good morning JJRHN,

 

Engineering has completed the rollout nationwide so please let me know if you are still having this issue with iMessage. If you are, please let me know specifially what is giving trouble, i.e. can't send text/media and/or can't receive text/media.

 

  Your cooperation, patience, and understanding are much appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Liz

@JJRHN 

 

Apparently engineering is already aware of the issue, or at least they've been informed of it.  What may be going on regarding such only the reps can say.  The following is a thread concerning the same issue being experienced by others...

Good morning JJRHN, 

 

I see it's your first post here, so welcome to the community! I'm glad you found the community, thank you for posting. I've let engineering know that we have more folks with the same issue. I'll post back once I have any news to share.

 

Your patience and understanding are much appreciated.

Re: Slow downloads and text message with images

Hi JJRHN, 

 

I appreciate your patience while our engineers investigated this issue. As you might've already read in the bigger thread, apparently engineering has already rolled out a fix to some portions of the network. So please check and confirm that the iMessage issue is resolved for you. If it's still not working, the fix is still in the process of making its way to you. No ETA on when the rollout will be completed. 

 

Thanks,

Liz

Re: Slow downloads and text message with images

Why would you close it down when every response I get from you is the engineers are working on it… Not “it’s been fixed.” I feel this will never be resolved and I am waiting for an LTE local Internet option to become available.

Maybe because she gave you two weeks to respond and you didn't. Mind reading isn't a prerequisite.

And she forgot to actually close the thread. Smiley Happy

...I checked and it still doesn’t work. Nowhere in her response does it say to reply directly to her and tell her it’s still does not work. I’m assuming you are an employee for HughesNet or just like to make comments to customers, but I’m not looking to get into a troll/text war online. I’m a customer that pays $150 a month for service it doesn’t work.

"I’m assuming you are an employee for HughesNet or just like to make comments to customers"

 

This is a peer-to-peer site, where subscribers help other subscribers.  The HughesNet staff get involved in cases when access to certain information (such as customer records) is needed.  Mark explained why the thread would have been closed; that's appropriate  and you may not have had a reply from a mod at all regarding this, since a fellow subscriber can provide that reply. 

 

Subscribers coming to this site should expect replies from other subscribers first, and from HughesNet staff (you will recognise them because they have MOD  next to their handle) later, if the peers can't help.   

 

The HN staff will be back Monday, and if they have an update for you, they'll be sure to post it.
