Leslie I think you are on to something.... I did a comparison with Hughesnet and 2 other services I use watching the same 1 hour Netflicks show found Hughesnet data usage to be almost double.
HughesNet 984 Mbs
Service provider #2 435 Mbs
Service provider #3 350 Mbs
Ran the test several times all with HughesNet the winner.
I should also mention that after 2 months I have never come close to the 25/3 Mbps that are advertised.
I average 10Mbps on the down and under 2Mbps on the up.
I have tried no less than 50 Hughesnet speed tests as well as third party "testmy.net" allmuch lower than I signed on for.
Good luck I guess its Buyer beware.
The same thing is happening to us we us up our data in the fist 5 days of the month. I think this is a scam to make your bill higher or make you buy more data...
If you'd like to work on figuring out what's chewing through your data in five days, you should start a new topic, which you can do by clicking on the blue "Start a topic" button on the upper right from within the Tech Support section.
There's no scam. Something is using your data. You just have to figure out what and why.
the status meter is down. my service is degraded. I know I have data left in my plan and full service should be restored. I smell a rat
