Barring a memo I found on their website that amounted to "Yup, something broke, we fixed it. Deal with it" I haven't found anything on the official website about the problems going on.
My most important question is "When is the download zone?". I'm in California, and despite waiting until 11:30 (when is starts saying "Download zone is active") any windows update or major download I leave running ends up being counted against me, even though I can confirm is stops by 3:59. A 500mb download took about 420 mbs from me last night.
My second question is, "What is going on with service?". I've had to disable turbopage because it was denying me access to about half of the websites I wanted to go to, with the infamous "Web Acceleration Error". I was expecting slower speeds, but since reading about the FAP problems and Hughes outage, my internet will go from its peak at about 200kbps (yeah, screw you Hughes Comercials) down to Dial up level, like 12kbps-40kbps. That's just unacceptable, given it took me 6 hours to download 100 mbs.
So, is there a trick to fixing that, and is anyone else still having these problems? What's the cause?
