Re: Why can't HNG4 reach the same speeds as Exede12?
My perspective is that Hughes is living up to their consistent "up to" policy by imposing speed caps appropriate to the rate plan right from the start. ViaSat on the other hand, is relying on sensationalism to pull in as many early 2 year commitments as possible. When the Exede servers start to fill up, every one of those folks who are oooo-ing and aaaaa-ing right now, will be over on the other forum bitching about "what happened to my speed?"

That said, during prime-time(s), their Cisco traffic management equipment is active.
Hence, YMMV, depending upon traffic and beam assignment; and anyone paying attention will know about Cisco's traffic cop. Here it is around 6:30 PM CST, and my download speed is about one meg faster than my plan. I think its better for ISPs to ramp up speeds, so the quicker a consumer does their business, the quicker they get off internet highway.
