sstuart2016, we have been experiencing the same issues for the past year. We have been told on several occasions that we have a data leak as well as programs that run in the background that also use data. At this moment I am uploading a 2.4mb file which should take a less than a minute. So far three attempts have taken over 10 minutes without success. Hughesnet is our only options. Often system lags coincide with our billing cycle as is the case tonight. I received an email notification that my bill is due and the system speed is very slow. We too used roku and netflix but would get frozen screens and then find that after two netflix movies we were out of data. I now use a verizon Mifi for critical internet usage. Hughesnet online support people have contacted me and offered to dispense with any early termination fees because I post on the online forums with explanations which attempt to be factual rather than just critical. Good luck, I hope your situation improves.
