Sorry if this has ever been talked about. I'm new, this is my first post ever. When I first signed up for my HughesNet service over the telephone the sales person sold me on the service after describing how HughesNet gets data to you. She used the term Compressed Data several times, and I was told that HughesNet compresses the data. She used an analogy like liquid going through a coffe straw, and a water pipe or something like that. I was told that this would allow me to get 3 times as much out of all my data. I'm not a tech whiz, but I have heard the term Compressed Data before so when she explained it to me I took that at its face value. While after calling customer service wondering why my data was gone in a day I was told that they have never heard of Compressed Data, it's not a thing, and Hughsnet dose not offer any kind of magic internet service or something along those lines. Why would the sales person make that up? What is Compressed Data then? Is it something Hughsnet offers? Was it BS? I called for info, and only decided to go ahead after talking to this sales person.
