Why does Hughesnet internet suck so bad?
Is it because they know the only people who get their services have to get it? There is NO other provider for my home, so problem after problem, after problem for $60 a month. Why oh why does it suck so bad?
Does it? Guess I'm glad I didn't choose it for my internet! I wonder why their service has been so bad for you though because they really hype the fact that they are the perfect solution for those people who can get nothing else where they're located?!
I'm located out in the "toolies" and Hughesnet was one of the internet options I considered to do my work from home. But I have to send/receive big files and the Hughesnet option I would have had to use would have cost about $300.00 per month! NO WAY! And as they are satellite based, the connection would not be very stable . . . "Sorry, "client", a cloud passed over my house and we lost connection". NOPE!
Can you upgrade to another option and pay a little bit more but get better service with them? Don't know if that is worth it to you . . . .
You must have a landline (?) so isn't DSL an option? That's what I have but I only get a 1.5M download speed - pathetic.
I am in a location where I can't even get a landline phone. There are no providers. We moved here a couple months ago and I work from home so I have to use it. They are the perfect solution if they are the only solution. You are right though, I lose connection if there is a cloud, rain, fog, drizzle, wind, even the solar storm knocked out my internet for almost 2 days. All their services are the same quality they just offer more download on each. thanks for your time and reply!
Well it is satellite internet, you like myself suffer from serious lag that comes from the fact of it being satellite internet. Hughsnet also runs a 2mb satellite which means it is just as slow as dial up internet. At least your paying 60 a month I am paying 109 a month for 450MB download allowance. You should check out this article I wrote it will actually give you a better understanding of why they are the way they are. Why they can give you a download allowance and not have to worry about it being unlimited.
