I have been on Gen 4 for several years and I'm considering upgrading to Gen 5 for more speed and data. My wife works from home and has been using VPN with limited success. Has anyone used VPN on their Gen 5 system after using the Gen 4 system. My concern is that if I change to Gen 5 and it is worse to the point she can"t use VPN on the new system, I wont't be able to revert back to the old system which would cause her major problems. Is the Gen 5 a big improvement over the Gen 4? Thanks for any help.

I've used a VPN for work, and used it without a problem with both Gen 4 and Gen 5. But your mileage may vary depending on many things, such as congestion. So if your wife depends on a VPN for work, you may want to think about staying with Gen 4, since it works for you (at least moderately). There really is no guarantee that a VPN will work with satellite internet, and you really have no way of knowing whether Gen 5 would work for you.
