Does anyone else think they should be able to control when allowance is used and when to throttle?
I absolutely agree. And you know what? YOU DO control when allowance is used and when it's throttled. Does someone tell you when you can and can't use your computer? That's your problem, not Hughesnet's. When you use all of your data, you are throttled. That's on you, not Hughesnet. Your 15GB can be used anytime, 24 hours a day. Hence the name "Anytime Data."
Your complaint makes absolutely no sense.
Additionally, there are a lot of people that are just fine and dandy with their service, and I've seen quite a few praise posts.
