What would your Gen 5 packages look like?

That's my sentiments exactly, maratsade. They might as well know what we think and what we want. We all know we don't always get everything we want. Hardly ever, really.

Whatever it is, I'm still waiting for the blue beam from my Gen4 dish!  Every time I see a Gen4 ad it's as if it is saying "Neener, neener, neener!  We have blue beams coming out of our dishes and you don't!  Neener, neener, neener!"  Smiley Happy

We can stream fine at about 2 Mbps if it is steady on Netflix low definition which looks fine to wife and I on all devices including 55" TV.

Hopefully they can provide that as a minimum even during peak hours for everyone.

Don't know how accurate it is, but I did come across this article.

Those numbers are pretty stingy.

What are your expectations for a satellite internet connection?

Re: What would your Gen 5 packages look like?

What I hope is this.  I hope that if the new modem has built in WiFi we can shut that part off and still use our own wireless routers. I recently discovered that the competition has a modem that has built in WiFi, but if you want to use your own wireless router, you can't, as it doesn't have an "internet" port on it.  It has four LAN ports, but none with the ability to use with a wireless router.  And even worse, if you don't want to use WiFi at all, there is no way to shut the WiFi off!  That's downright rotten.  

I sure hope the designers of the new Gen5 modem were nicer than what the competition is stuck with.
