I have the advertised 1.5mgbs service currently running under 100 mgbs. The only response their tech service could offer was that their speeds advertised speeds are not guaranteed. Has anyone found a solution to slow Hughes broadband or is this the best they can offer?
If you are considering broadband, Hughes should be your last option. I subscribe to the 700 to 1K plan and have never receive greater than 500K. It took the company 6 months of complaints and calls to get me to that level. I was getting 100 to 300K because of a bad component of the receiver that was originally installed.
They also have a daily download limit of 400MB. If you use itunes one time you can easily exceed that and will be cut to dial up speeds for the next 24hrs. Again, when this complaint was aired with customer service, no action. They just kept reciting the policy even thought this showed on their records as happening one time in the entire year I have owned the service. I lost the afternoon and the entire next day of my ability to do work from my home.
In summary, I would use an over the air card over this expensive and poor service if doing it again.
