ever get the feeling that hughesnet is deliberately bolloxing gen 4 speeds to promote gen5 and get that juicy contract for those of us who have made it through the first one? Im feeling very roped in here. I have managed to do eschooling for three years on gen 4 with some problems, but generally doable as long as we have the data (which necessitates us not using it for anything else but i digress) but since they came out with gen 5 ive been having more and more trouble with actually staying online, much less speed. And now that school has started again this week the kids couldnt even complete their placement tests, literally!! It would NOT let them stay connected long enough or strong enough to complete a few hours of testing, and they didnt even have to have their webcams on which was a requirement for the last two years without issue!! So i call up, after promising the school to do something about this, and the only answer i got, was "Upgrade" Something's rotten in the state of denmark.
