Re: Slow speeds only in prime time hours

Why is it that when we run the test all we get back is gobbledy Gook.  I ran test with what is on the sped test on Hughes Net, and TestMy Net and both are below the national average for DL speeds and UL speeds.  when is Hughes net going to get with the program and provide what their TV advertisement is saying.  Fast it ain't

The test I ran on both TestMyNet and the Hughes net speed test are below the national averages.  Hughes Net TV advertisements are extremely misleading

ran a speed check and still got 1mg last night.  Can you inform the engineers?

Comparing Hughesnet's speed results to the national average, which include fiber optic and cable and non consumer systems, is like comparing apples and oranges.  Satellite internet is not fiber optc, nor is it cable, and they are "with the program" with satellite internet.  The national average includes systems that consumers don't use and have speeds that we won't see for quite some time.

 

A satellite ISP is, for the most part, an ISP of last resort.  Very few people would choose to get satellite for their internet when cable or fiber optic are available to them.

How about a price reduction across the board, since this seems to be a common problem. I pay for speeds "up to 15Mbps", but have been told repeatedly that 60% of that is "normal". I could live with that if you could provide that speed AT ALL TIMES, not 20's in the mornings and 1Mbps or less when I'm home and wanting to stream something later in the day. A 9Mbps average is not what I pay for.

Was there any resolution, this is th exact same scenario as with me.

Re: Slow speeds only in prime time hours

Amanda, did the engineers respond to my latest test?

If you want, I can be contacted at the phone number on my account.

It looks like I'm stirring up a hornets nest on here with others that must be on the same beam

Up to means that the speed can be anything from 0 to 15. Speeds are not guaranteed.
