before gen 4 the broadband was replenished every 24 hours now its replenished every 30 days or so.. that means that with gen 4 your broadband is probably cut over 100 percent.. i gave up math a long time ago and do not wish to calculate it ..its just too worrisome but i betcha its a huge cut and hughesnet is getting rich off it.OK, here's the math: The basic Home plan on earlier generation plans was 250 MB per day for $60/mo. Let's just focus on that for now since the daytime bucket is what most people use and are used to. 250 MB per day times 31 days = 7.75 GB per month. The current $60/mo. plan in our area gives you 10 GB per mo. during the daytime, or 25% more than the old plan. In some areas of the country you can get Gen4 plans with 50 GB of daytime data for $60/mo. That's over six times more total data per month that a plan offering 7.75 GB cumulative.
