Re: Talk About Low Earth Orbit !

90K miles would have been my "guess" too, however when coupled with the idea of a 50% speed reduction of every router pass from customer "support" is a little over the top.

Particularly in light of the continual misinformation spouted by Hughes.
If you are a CSR don't guess, know what you are talking about.

Where else besides here are people going to find objective opinions about Hughesnet ?

It sure isn't going to be on their support website.

This is something they won't show on there support site indeed, and the reason for it is its a negative "thing" the connection has to travel 80,000+ miles so yeah, just saying that number says enough (negative) and we all know Hughes hates negative things on there support page.. Or things thats made up and not true about them but that amount of distance is right, unless you wanna see a little satellite high up in the sky thats only a few hundreds of miles away from your house that would be cool but scary.
