Re: new customer - mobile super slow vs laptop

Hi molli0707, 

 

I'm glad you found the community, thank you for posting. I ran diagnostics on your site just to double check the HughesNet system, and that's working normally. 

 

Here's some ideas to consider and try out to improve the speed on your Pixel 5. I don't think this is mentioned on either site, but I'd also doublecheck that the Pixel is up-to-date as well.

Have you done any troubleshooting?  For example, restarted everything (included the modem), switched to the 5 GHz radio to see if it makes a difference, used a different browser, etc.? And also, you're sure the phone is actually connected to the wifi?
