@Jimmydz Streaming Netflix in HD can use around 3GB per hour. With a 10GB plan, that's a little over three hours of HD streaming and your Service Plan Data will be used up for the month. Streaming in SD uses about 700MB per hour, and LD about 350MB per hour, which with a 10GB plan is a little over 14 and 28 hours, respectively. Also, this is ONLY the streaming. Anything else you do on the the net, including the devices you use keeping up to date, will use data, so those amounts are really only theoretical, not real world. To save as much data as you can, your best bet is to set your streaming definition to no higher than Standard Definition (SD), which is DVD quality. With Youtube, you can do this with each video (480p), and it will eventually learn your preference. For Netflix, the instructions are here... https://help.netflix.com/en/node/87 Also, during your first twenty days of service your data allotment is reset on a regular basis. HughesNet does this as a courtesy. It's done to allow users to update/upgrade their devices to current without it affecting what would be their normal monthly data allotment. In addition, HughesNet does not offer a thirty day trial period. Cancelling is subject to an Early Termination Fee. One additional thing: When you use all of your data your speed is throttled due to your service being subject to the Fair Access Policy (FAP). For some, that throttled speed is still enough to stream in SD, but the speed can vary, so it's not guaranteed that you'll be able to do this.
