Good "Connection speed on ProPlus of 1200/155 only in the AM (EST). Fine if you don't use Hughes in the afternoons or evenings,"
Bad "Customer service from India & Can't reach upper levels of tech support"
Overall "If you want to blow money for substandard service - Go with Hughes or stay with Dial up."

Wow, 5-years since I dumped this crooked outfit, still visit the Hughes forums here frequently. Feel very sorry for those that don't have any alternate.

Well...All good things come and go, in this case the good was my original downloads of 1.1 - 1.2Mbps, which are now a thing of the past. I'm on the "ProPlus" 1.5Mbps/200kbps plan.
January 26th, 04:30PM - 268/26 kbps
January 25th, 08:23PM - 56/7 kbps
January 24th, 09:06PM - 331/7 kbps
January 23rd, 06:38PM - 81/26 kbps
January 22nd, 07:59PM - 63/19 kbps
January 21st, 07:41PM - 537/7 kbps

Speedtests after 9PM couldn't be accomplished, uploads went to zero (0), as well as my internet connection.

I have more options

I have more options such has Frontier and Time Warner, but choose HugheNet for my internet, I haven't had any issues with my service, I am not a gamer, or one that watches movies off of netflix, I just do normal everyday stuff and it has always worked just fine, my speed tests have always been decent (5Mbps+)

Maybe I dont notice any issues because typically the hours im using it is between 11pm and 7am and here and there during the day.
