I appreciate your time and effort in explaining this complicated issue- I actually read through the whole post and am interested in seeing the next installment. But what I come away with is that the issue of finding data leaks has become so difficult that the average customer - who is either not tech savvy ro does not have the time to chase all the avenues - cannot tackle it. I think the solution truly lies in Hughesnet re-evaluating their product, primarlily data restrictions. A lot has changed in how customers use their internet in the past five years, and they have been encouraged by providers every step of the way, while software and app developers have been making use of expanded data capabilities. Now we seem to be hitting a brickwall - especially "rural" customers who depend most on satellite as other high data options are not available. Our state legislators are even now tryong to find solutions. If Hughesnet could vastly increase the data allowances, or remove them all together like cable and DSL, while still keeping their prices comparable to those other options- then satillite would be a very practical solution for all us folks who live just a few miles from town but can't get the service our workmates and family and friends have. This could be agreat opportunity for Hughesnet to step up to the plate and make high speed internet available to the rest of the country, as sateliite did with TV. Please think about it!
