We are very sorry the beginning of your time with us is off to a rocky start. We are having some work done on our network that is supposed to improve service at night by adding more room for everyone to "move around".
In regards to Gen5, since you are already on Gen4 you can choose to stay and you should see an increase in speeds, or you can hop over to the new satellite. All we would need to do is send you the new modem to your house and it is easy to hook up. But when Gen5 comes out, we are going to see a big jump in speeds and if the Ultra plan is available to you now I really recommend staying on Gen4 for a while. If you don't see improvement, we can get you over to Gen5. Just give us a holler here. In the meantime, I will apply a $20 discount to your account for 6 months because of the inconvenience. Please let me know if you have any questions! I would be happy to answer.
