Re: Gen 4: HT1000 Download Allowance Status

3 weeks of having it and I've probably downloaded 75GB of data. As long as it keeps resetting, I going to make use of it.

Sara, from Hughes, finally made an "official" post on this matter today, which reads "I apologize for the delayed response: at this time Gen4 systems' download allowance resets in a daily basis. Enjoy."

Wow, I was actually afraid their official statement would be "Sorry for the problem it will be fixed immediately." Mostly because I'm sure anyone who signed up with the higher allowance plan would be pretty upset and would want to be moved down a tier for the time being.. Oh well, crossing my fingers hoping it lasts for another 23 months.

if the economy tanks, they'll likely have to leave it that way to keep the customers that have.

If you can accurately predict the direction of the economy you have a bright future ahead of you (and should become very wealthy if you have the resources to make bets on your predictions). Otherwise, they are simply doing the same thing that Exede did - it costs virtually nothing to allow access to a sparsely populated network, and it ensures a happy early customer satisfaction.

I'm going on what all the top economists keep saying.. The US dollar is done.. Just a matter of time before it drops like a rock and the US economy becomes like Wiemar, Germany in 1933. I'm actually surprised they've managed to keep it going this long..

No, sorry. We probably will get moderated for getting political, but I can tell you with certainty that the statement above means you have accepted someone's hand-picked and biased list of economists as somehow being all the top ones.

I suspect even the true top economists don't agree on who "all the top economists" are, but no comprehensive list will find ANY agreement on the direction of the dollar, the economy, or much of anything else. They are as divided in opinion as the rest of us.

Did you notice back in the spring when the price of gas started up that there were "top economists" predicting $6 per gallon after Memorial Day? Did you notice after the price started to drop in May that there were "top economists" predicting that the bottom would fall out of oil? Did you notice how "top economists" often seem to predict that, whatever the trend of the moment is, it will continue? And have to backpedal furiously?

They are as bad as the weather guessers on anything further out than 2 weeks.
