Hello, I've recently got HughesNet installed and the connection speed seems good but downoading Amazon Prime videos is slow. I've tried this during bonus zone (6am, PST): - Laptop is connected to 5G Wifi, sitting right next to HughesNet modem/router. - Speedtest.net reports reasonable download speeds (>25Mbps). - Windows Task Manager shows the proper spike in my network during speedtest. - Amazon Prime stream and download settings are set to "Good" to keep data usage low. - I'm able to stream a video in the application and Task manager reported network rate of about 2Mbps while streaming. - However, when downloading videos using Amazon Prime Video for Windows the download rate does not get past 1Mbps, making the download very slow, which feels a bit dissapointing. - I've tried this with and without the network connection set as metered. - I've also tried this with and without "Download using mobile data" in Prime settings. - HughesNet system control center shows Web Acceleration enabled. - I've also noticed that I have Video Data Saver on on my account settings (not sure if this affects Prime downloads). In other network connections (comcast in another home, and in city's library) Prime downloads were relatively fast. I'm wondering if HughesNet is slowing down Prime downloads on purpose, perhaps as a way to reduce congestion or make them bleed out of the bonus zone?
