Re: Hughes Gen4 is a FRAUD 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.
