Re: Gen 4 data vs Gen 5 data

The 20/50 plan is $129.99 + Lease ($9.99 or $15.00 depending on modem) + Taxes, if it costs anymore than that it's because you have additional services on your bill.

As far as the difference in costs, the new satellite that was recently launched has offered Hughes a chance to offer better service plans like the 50/50 plan, where it wasn't originally available.

If you want the 50/50 plan, you are going to have to upgrade service.

The only service available now is Gen5.  Gen4 packages are no longer being offered.  

 

With that said, I've NEVER seen a Gen4 20GB package at a price that high.  Is this through a local dealer?

Not to stir the pot but Gen4 Ultra  50/50 plan at $89.99 here.

 

It is all relative, simply depends on time you sign up and what is available. My plan is considered "grandfathered" now so if I switched I would lose it for eternity. How it works, no different from cell phone providers, which satellite Internet is very similar to.

Um, point is you're getting ripped off at that price if what you say is true. Are you with a reseller, third party contracter?

Have you checked your account for a breakdown of charges?
