A few people buying and using data tokens on a regular basis doesn't have the same effect on the system as tens of thousands of subscribers taking advantage of a larger data plan.

What do you mean that it does not have same effect on the system?


But if there is all of a sudden 30,000 cars per hour (larger plans being offered) trying to go down the road, traffic would slow down considerably.  That's what would happen with the system by adding larger data plans, as it's likely that a lot of people would upgrade to them.  The larger the plans offered, the greater the impact and the slower the service would be. 


I don't get what you mean - I already purchased a lot of data is for as long I have data available there is no speed restrictions? I'm right now at 128.7 GB data token left. So far until next billing cycle on 28th (see chart below) and the remaining left of data token left does still stay because it is paid for.

Service Plan Data of 50 GB 0% remaining left. 8 am to 2 am.
Bonus Zone of 50 GB 8% remaining left. 2 am to 8 am.
Total Data Usage is 102.7 GB.

Edit: I might used wrong word saying bandwidth and replaced to total data usage for better understanding.

I don't have the ability to better explain it.  I suggest researching ISP system capacity, bandwidth and subscriber load to get a better understanding.

If you do not have the skill why is that? I'm still under residential service as my prefix is DSS?

It's not my job to help you understand.  You posited a question about data, and that question was answered.  HughesNet doesn't offer more data because they aren't going to offer what their system cannot support.  That's it.  

 

Yes, a prefix of DSS means you are a residential subscriber.

If their system cannot support it why am I still online that I have extended their capacity of 50 GB data plan as the 14th time of their billing cycle under the new contract agreement? I say data token with unrestricted speed. Smiley Happy

Re: data token question

Hello Ryan,

 

Thank you for posting and starting an interesting discussion. To put things to rest, I floated your question to our top tech person and he confirmed that only ~7% of our subscribers are on the 50 GB plan, so there's not much market demand for a higher plan. Not so say we won't ever roll out new plans, but should that be in the works and we're allowed to annouce any new plans, you'll hear about it.

Thank you for the information and I'm glad you find this thread interesting and if you meant only 7 or 17 percent subscribers are on 50 GB plan that what I see at the moment only 10, 20, 30 or 50 GB are offered. If that was true I think it is because not very many people can afford 149.99 to pay per month. Comcast Business did offer those before over ten years ago but I did not accept that offer at that time that I started with 20 GB starter plan.

Re: data token question

7% of subscribers are on the 50 GB plan, not 17%.
