[HN7000S] Roll over on 7000s ?

Got the allowance increase to 475 on pro plan, but has anyone seen the roll over yet on HN700s ?

I haven't seen it yet. Someone said here that they will still be implementing the rollover into January.

I'm not looking forward to this rollover thing. About the same time they increased the daily allowance, flow control kicks in way more often reducing my speeds dramatically. Do not want to know what will happen after rollover is in place, unless Hughes is opening more gateways and will do a proper balancing.

Yes, a few people with 7000 modems have started getting the increase.

I'm still at 475, nothing changed.

What is the rollover thing I keep hearing about?

Your allowance will double. You will still get 475 MB at refill time so the HN meter will show 50% when you get your refill instead of 100% but you will carry over unused MB from the day before untill you fill that extra amount. So say at refill time in the morning you had 300 MB left over, you will get a refill of 475 MB added to that 300 MB for a total of 775 MB to use in the next 24 hours, If you have 700 of that left the next day then your refill will top you off to 100% with a 250 MB refill.

Yep. Virtually no postings from 7000 users saying they have it. I think all of the concentration is on making it work properly with the 9000. Supposed to happen for us in January, but that could be anywhere from January 1 to January 31.

It will be interesting to see how the rollover is implemented on the HN7000S, as we get continuous 56 kbps bucket re-fill during the day.
Wonder if the rollover will be based on how much we didn't use during the day, or how much is left in our bucket at the end of the day - they're usually 2 entirely different numbers......

Bucket refill is not 56kbps, although a plan with 475MB allowance would be around that. Refill is 1/19 of the daily allowance per hour, excluding the 5 FAP-free hours.

Nothing will change in terms of refill, just that if it hits your normal cap it will keep on refilling. So, if you are at just above zero and do not use the system then after 24 hours you will have your normal allowance, and after another 24 hours you will have double your normal allowance.

If you happened to have a full bucket when the Bank kicks in, and you typically use half your allowance per day, then after day 1 you will be at 1.5 your normal full, and after 2 days you will be at double; from then on you would fluctuate between 1.5 and 2 times during the day, instead of between 0.5 and 1.

dbird - thanks for the explanation, makes perfect sense, in my case I figure refill at 25 mb/hour (which is approx 56 kbps). The 1/19 per hour with no refill during the 5 hrs FAP-free makes perfect sense and tracks perfectly with what I've measured over the years.
C'mon rollover !!

Still waiting here. Of course, most nights here lately I'm happy if the service works at all.

I think it will getting worse when the rollover is in place. See my post above. The only hope I have that I'm wrong about this.

Were still on the old 475 plan as well. No rollover.
