Re: [HN9000] Why am I getting fapped during the fap-free time?

I'll wait and see, but yeah, if they remove the free time, then Exede would become a better choice and I'll go.

Wow Hughesnet. I almost went through my entire limit during the 2-7 am tonight.

Can't you get your crap together? If they have taken away the free time then I'm done with Hugesnet, I don't care if I have to break my contract. I mean the entire reason why I got the Hughesnet was the free time period.

How can they compete with Exede with this? I'll be switching as soon as I find out the time zone is gone, that they can count on.

I had noticed that the date on my HN9000 jumped back to December 20 at somewhere around 9pm, the uptime said 50 minutes and did not budge.

This morning at 2AM my download zone did not kick in. I guessed it had something to do with the time being incorrect. So I rebooted it, and now it says it's about 2:30AM on Jan 4, 2000! But still no download zone.

The usage history page ends on 1/23.

Refills seem to be going normally as far as I can tell. Unfortunately I have to work for 6 more hours tonight and my scheduled refill is 7 hours away, so I can't really test out seeing what happens when I run out of allowance.

Yeah mine too, my download time went back to normal but my data is still going down during no fap time. If they get rid of the download zone I'm officially done with HughesNet.

Still broken. The resetting time is back to normal, but my allowance is still going down during the 'fap-free' time. HN9000 user.

I was able to figure it out in a short time when It happened to me didnt fap luckily... but the allowance was still going down after 2am..... it might be fixed now but the times were messed up... For me its was resetting download allowance like every 2-3 hours and the fap free time was changed from 2am to 7am to 6:30 am to 11:30 am... yeah totally not safe to set your download timers at this point...

All of this looks like a workaround for whatever killed the service.

Was getting "Download Zone" 2 hours after it was supposed to be over yet I was down to 20MB on the allowance. But only 3 minutes till a reset, so waited that out and the next reset was listed to be 2 hours and 40 minutes later.

Went to check data use, and last usage is still on the 23rd from just before the outage.

said by Dennis:

It appears that it is renewing every 4 hours and some odd minutes. But everytime it does that, it removes a token. When it is repaired, will I be getting my tokens back because I certainly am not using 3 Gb of download a night.

Sad... Some of them have so many tokens and once its used up, another token gets automatically used up (repeat) and thats a good question, will they get back there tokens??

Right at this moment i'm able to download anything, heck even 20GB (for an example) or so..
They have'nt made any progress with the Gen4 allowance, should have bonus bytes by now but we're not. I'm still able to download however much I want.

Kinda wondering right now if hughes is actually doing anything? Last night and night before I started seeing a whole bunch of new customers over on the community page complaining and having multiple issues. Sooner or later its gonna fall onto us Gen4 users

I'm kinda scared to reboot my modem, I ended up with unlimited lol.

Realy feel bad for the people that are getting fapped.

As for them getting rid of the fap-free zone it'd be suicide possibly, but they are doing some sorta gen4 plan with the spaceway sat afaik.

Hard to believe they'd lay that on us with the rep they already have. On the other hand, if they also keep the bucket refill every 4 hours, then I might be able to live with it.

If this is the case, then I suggest people just purposely exceed their limit the hour immediately following when their FAP-free time ends. That way if you exceed it during the "unlimited" time, (which I personally will do every day) at least it'll be restored soon after.

Same thing is happening to all HN9000 users, I think. It's probably related to the maintenance the other day. I have a feeling that they are indeed from now on going to count download amounts made during the unlimited period towards our daily limits. Also, i could swear the "bandwidth exceeded" popup has different wording now.

I hope I'm wrong.

I had a full bucket before I started downloading at 1:00am cst (start of fap-free time for my time zone).

I just checked at 3:00am and it says my bucket is empty and I'm fapped! Also, my refill is showing a little over 2 hours remaining. What's going on?

I hope hughes hasn't done away with the fap-free time for us 9000 users.
