[HN9000] New Status Display
Well, my MODEM went down last night, then returned, and I had a new allowance display. What's with these "bonus Bytes" which it says are unlimited?

Welp its from the new Gen4 i believe (they got the idea while in the making of Gen4)
As i can see it right now.. All Gen4 users and HN9000 users and possibly even some others like the 7K will get a limit 24 hours around the cloak, so might as well say goodbye to the unlimited cause it may be gone the next day.
Keep checking with you modem's home page and status!

It has begun.
I love that people don't understand the reasoning/purpose of so many seeing this -.-
If you are on an HN9000 unit, the software was recently updated to reflect your bonus period and normal period, some terminology has changed. If you are on a LEGACY HN9000 plan (you know, the one that is well over 6+ months old) you are not going to loose your unlimited download allowance that occurs at night.
If you are on HN9000 Connect Pro, or any of the HT1000 plans, they are now enacting the bandwidth cap for night usage.

If you use hnFAPAlert you will need a new copy to go with the new firmware. I haven't changed the full copy yet, but probably will do so soon, since nobody has recently reported any problems with the test copy. See »New hnFAPAlert version - testers needed

notice the fap-free period has shifted. eastern time no longer applies, the time frame is your local time, whatever that is. and the period shifted from 1 am central to 6 am central to 2am to 7 am.

So, understand that the free period is history, except for older users?
"So, understand that the free period is history, except for older users?"
That is correct yes.
If you have a HN7000s you still have the FAP free period. (hourly refill)
If you have the "original" 9000 system, you still have the FAP free period. (daily refill)
If you have Gen$4, you are out of luck, you have Bonus Bytes.
For the areas of the US not currently covered/served/screwed by Echostar 17 you may/have/will get the Golden Shower opertuninty to "Upgrade" to a "up to" higher speed variant on the Spaceway 3 Sat that offers "upto, maybe perhaps" higher speeds than the traditional 9000 plan but less than the "Blazing maybe perhaps upto speeds" of the true Gen4 systems.
Remember that on Gen$4 and the "improved wanabe 9000" that your uploads count against your monthly allowance. (monthly refill)
Not to rant, but did this make anything a bit clearer ?
