"HughesNet is far superior to dial-up" Lets compare: Dial-up doesn't lie to you about the speeds that you are purchasing Hughesnet charges for 10mbs and gives you less then 1 most times. Dial-up works 24/7 Hughesnet works if it isn't raining. Dial-up cost $12 a month Hughsnet charges $75 (to sit and watch your screen buffer just like dial-up) Dial-up doesn't make you sign a 2 contract. Hughesnet makes you sign a 2 year contract for their service knowing that they cannot deliver on there speed promises and down times. Dial-up has the same speed no matter what time of day (or night) it is Hughesnet has dial-up speeds in the day and only in the middle of the night when everyone is asleep does it speed up a little. So is it far superior? NO. Is it a little faster at times? YES, as long as you stay up all night while the rest of the country is sleeping and not on it. Does it cost 6 times as much? YES.
