I currently am using my cell over a repeater. While not a perfect solution it works. I have been using hughes net for aprx 9 months. The service so far has been below expectations. My expectations were not really that high. And my conversation with the sales rep indicated they could meet my requirements. In particular video streaming (the small bit that I do) is useless. Internet browsing has been slightly better but not up to what I was expectiing but at least useable. I have worried the phone service will be in the same vein. So if someone has been using the VOIP service please relate your experience. Thanks.
