Re: [Networking] Online Gaming on HughesNet

Has anyone tested out the new plans for gaming? HughesNet released the Express 200,300,500 they have 512kbps and 1024 kbps of upload speeds

Well I am on the power 200 or the express 200 plan, not sure because I upgraded from the small business package and not sure whether they recommisioned me as a small business or a residential customer but the plans are the same speeds and FAP either way and I recieve my plan speeds or better pretty much 24 hours a day. The FAP is advertised at 400 MB but I get 550 MB. Once in a while during prime time my speeds fall to 1.3 to 1.6 MB but not every day.

You know something? If it wasn't for the price, it might be worth my time to upgrade to one of the modern plans. That's a pretty decent connection speed, right there! But then again... is it any more stable? Rather, does it have any less jitter than the old plans? ("Jitter", for those who don't know, basically means "inconsistent ping results" such as "750ms -> 912ms -> 891ms -> 519ms -> 1024ms" vs. "600ms -> 605ms -> 591ms -> 600ms -> 599ms".)
