Re: Ex-WB/Exede12 user's first impressions with Hughesnet Gen4

said by TexasRebel:

Good to meet ya! So far Gen4 is fast, but I've ran into some glitches. I want a public IP like I had with ViaSat/Exede and I want the advertised 15Mbps on the downside. I think they are purposely holding back on bandwidth. Only 14 days since they went live and I would figure everyone would get way over their advertised speeds.. There's no way they have reach capacity on any beams..

I have not seen you mention this yet, but how is the latency on Gen4 compared to Exede12? About the same?

latency is pretty much the same.. 600-800ms. speed isn't there yet with actually seeing a consistent 15Mbps down. Barely get 9Mbps whenever I test. $117 including tax for the PowerMax package and with the constant meter resetting everyday, it's allowed me to download alot of things I've been wanting without worrying about using up my allowance. Hopefully, it takes them months to fix the meter resetting.. ;-p
