I'm glad you kept your DSL (!) connection as a backup. I mean I know when I had DSL, I was signing up for satellite services just to have a reliable backup connection once in a while. That darn DSL goes down so much I needed Hughesnet. Yep that's how it is.
My DSL has been pretty reliable just not enough bandwidth. So I though I would try Hughes Net to see how it would work out, not real impressed so far. It goes down a lot and although I have 10meg down load speed it sometimes takes forever for a webpage to load and does not work well with android devices especially chromecast or online gameing, thats why I kept the dsl so my grandson could still play his ps3 thats where the bandwidth problem comes in. Do you have problems loading web pages? Just signing into HugnesNet so that I can go to my dashboard seems to take forever.
