I already knew about the contract line of BS. There's simply no need to make customers sign a contract for 2 years and require them to pay for a sub standard level of service.

The technology works well if it's not purposely crippled due to what a group of executives thinks how it should perform.

I would have stayed with Exede12, but it wasn't my choice. Some jackoff in legal didn't like my verbal tirade towards the company when they started enforcing the DAP and then claiming that LNFZ (Late Night Free Zone) never used up data in your plan, when it actually did.

HNG4 should be set to deliver wide open throughput and the data caps should be like what is on Cable/DSL. When EchoStar 17 reaches 90% capacity, put another high bandwidth satellite up. Necessity is the mother of all invention and innovation.

Hell with the money that AT&T and Verizon makes, they could've
parked a dozen of these high bandwidth sats in orbits and still made
quite a profit in the long run.

Ok, I guess I shouldn't be surprised. I usually stick to the technical stuff, but latched on to this because of the pernicious posturing. I'll part by saying; increasingly common attitudes like "it's not my fault and "they owe it to me" have become quite dismaying.
