Re: Hughes Gen4 is a FRAUD

said by TexasRebel:

There's no way in hell that EchoStar 17 has reached capacity on any of the beams. I seriously doubt that they have 15,000+ subs on any of the beams. Probably only a couple thousand max on any beam.

Not true
In southern Az they aren't installing anymore Gen4s
Beam loaded

Not possible... Are you sure that particular beam isn't just screwed up? No way in hell any beam is already peaked unless they essentially sold an entire beam to one or two huge customers....

there is no way in hell that any of HNG4's beams are loaded. Not in just over 2 months of going live. Hell, Exede had nearly a 9 month headstart and they've not maxed out any of their beams.

Either Echostar 17's bandwidth is not completely being dedicated for HNG4 and is being used for non-published purposes, or HN's network operations is really below required spec to be used with Echostar 17.

Probably the later in that HN executives thought they could save money in cutting corners and believing a segment of their customer base wouldn't ever complain about the performance.

that would be some sheit.. imagine a handful of customers having the only access to a beam.. probably some rich effers that want all the available bandwidth so they can netflix day and night and whatever else their hearts desire.. meanwhile the rest of the customers get the shaft.

I'm more inclined to think "gateway loaded". Here in western KY I can see Beams 31 and 38. Four IPGWs (gateways) are indicated on Beam 31, but only 3 of them are currently active. Beam 38 has at least 5 IPGWs, not all of them are active yet ither.

So the question becomes, how many IPGWs do you see on that southern AZ beam? If more than one, have you tried Beam Over-ride?

I agree with the thought of the gateway being loaded and not the beam. They will probably do more additions to an existing gateway later on provided they feel there is enough potential for that gateway/beam to generate more customers.
