Re: The truth

Good morning fulseblo57,

I see it's your first post here, so welcome to the community! We can certainly help address your speed concerns, to get started, please follow the steps here to set up a testmy.net account and run speed tests so we can properly evaluate your system performance:

https://community.myhughesnet.com/hughesnet/topics/cant-use-the-hughesnet-speedtest-guide-for-testmy...

Most important points:
-do the tests while directly connected to the HughesNet modem
-use the 12MB test file
-space each test at least 5 minutes apart (3 tests will suffice)
-post your results URL here, it may look something like http://testmy.net/quickstats/[yourusername]

Looking forward to hearing back from you.

Your cooperation, patience, and understanding are much appreciated.

Thanks,
Liz

Thanks,
Liz

Re: The truth

How long have you had your system?

Which system do you have - is it the white modem or the gray modem?

Have you had this problem since the start, or did this begin recently?

Is it possible you used up all your data for the month and your connection has been throttled?

He could be trying to watch HD as well.

Hey Fulseblo be sure to only use SD as HD will buffer a lot and use up your data very very very very fast.

Satellite internet is not meant to be your sole source for TV and movie streaming, there is not enough data allowance for that.
