Re: Moving...hughesnet for business

Thanks.
The "marketed" speed for Hughes is "up to" 15mbps down and 2mbps up. Think Exede says "up to" 12mbps down and 3 mbps up - »www.directexede.com/exede/?gclid···odI0cARw
I like the unmetered part, as we stay up late at times and would be useful to have. Just wish there was a way to test out the services before being hooked into a contract.

I wouldn't compare marketed speeds as a factor. Assuming both actually reached their max, the difference would be negligible. However most people have a tough time getting Hughes' marketed speeds on Gen4. Exede seems to often times exceed their rated 12Mbps.

Neither are going to compare to Time Warner in terms of latency and both have their hiccups.

Thanks. So in terms of latency are you saying web pages would load say 3 seconds longer or so? I could live with that.

Traveling - you may find that your internet phone or VOIP will be kinda iffy on satellite internet (has to do with the variable latency of your connection). You'll be able to hear voice IN ok, but your voice OUT may be a little garbled......
You'll just have to give it a try and see how it works for you......
