Day 30 on Hughesnet. Never once have i been able to get streaming to work. Endless buffering. netflix speed test(fast.com) never over 80kbps. Youtube wont even start playing a video. Testmy.net avg speed is about 1.3 mbps. If that is accurate, it seems to me that streaming is being throttled. Even so, 1.3 Mbps is nowhere near acceptable. Heck, I'd be happy if I could get 1.3 Mbps ACTUAL speed! I just want to stream one show at ultra low quality for my one year old, and I cant. She misses her favorite show, and since we moved the only way to get it is to stream it. It breaks my heart when shes asks why her show is gone. I know Hughesnet can metaphorically press a button and speed it up.I don't buy that they built a system they cannot control. I see why they dont want to, but I feel in my case it is warranted. Only one device connected via LAN cable. Wifi disabled. Power cycled endless times. Did it all with perfect weather, no wind or clouds. Tried on multiple devices, all same speed. Factory reset modem. Using only ethernet cable made NO difference. Tested Wifi with a few apps and all show wifi is capable of 80 Mbps. Gateway errors are common. https://testmy.net/db/6Q0oMifKV Called tech support multiple times. Even they confirmed something must be wrong and its not my fault because I've completed all their steps, and done the testmy.net test as they asked. Every time at the end of the call they tell me they cannot escalate because their speed test is like 30Mbps. Last time, I offered to share my testmy.net results, done properly with all the steps. THEN he says sharing testmy.net isnt possible. I asked for a supervisor, was put on hold for over an hour, and then told there were none working today! I would like it to work. Not even as advertised. I'd be happy with 5Mbps!
