I never had any of these issues with At&t Uverse!😓 Most of it you'll get used to pretty quickly, and things like checking the WiFi signal strength really only needs to be done to make sure it's not contributing to the streaming issue. It's not something you'd do on a regular basis. You do want to get in the habit of paying attention to your data usage/levels, though. You don't have to be checking it all the time, but you do want to know where you stand, data wise, on a regular basis. I tend to check mine at least once every couple of days, but if you do lot of data hungry things, like streaming, you'd probably want to check it more often. If you run out of data you're only throttled, not cut off, but it's still better to avoid having that happen when you can, and knowing how much data you have left in the current data cycle will definitely help with that. HughesNet, like all satellite internet, is most definitely a change from ground based service, especially when compared to services that have no data cap. It's really a service of "last resort", for when you can't get ground based service. Providing a basic internet connection with adequate speed for many things, and with the addition of being able to do a little streaming if one wants, but not a lot, as the data amounts are too small to support it. You can buy data tokens if you're throttled and need the higher speed again, or if you want to avoid throttling before it happens, but that can get expensive very quickly, so most people limit data hungry activities like streaming. But yeah, if you're used to Uverse, having HughesNet is going to be quite a bit different.
