[HN9000] Faster FAP Speeds on Gen 4?
I've been a Hughesnet customer for about 4-5 months now.
I always run out of data and get throttled every month. What can I say? I like Youtube.
Normally I dread it because my speeds go from 10 Mbps to 100 kbps. A huge difference.
It makes surfing the web almost impossible.
Yet this month, I've been consistently hitting 1 Mbps. Certainly not great but it makes browsing the web perfectly fine. I can even watch Youtube videos if I let them buffer for a few minutes.
Did they change something? I hope this is how FAP is for the rest of my contract. I could live with this!

Well in FAP mode, web page loading is close to being the same as if you are'nt in FAP unless the website is say 10mb cause only for 2 seconds will hughes let you download a small enough website like 1mb
Streaming video's is a lot different manner.. If congestion is high then it could be impossible to do (reset modem is required much) but if no congestion then your video will load going approximately 19KB/s (of course after hughes finds out that you are no longer loading websites)
Never used the 9000 myself but i am curently on the Gen4 and only biggest issue i have is keeping a hold of the bandwidth instead of using it all up most of the time. Video's will eat it up though (my brother streams atleast 5-10 everyday)

Support only the gaming company's that matter the most, pay for something that actually is worth buying or has a good reason for how much it's worth.
Huh, maybe that's how it's supposed to be, but that's never how it's been for me.
Usually when I go into FAP mode, everything slows to a crawl. Amazon takes 30+ seconds to load. That's the worst website for some reason.
But they're all really unbearably slow.
It's interesting to hear it's not supposed to be like that.
But yeah, this month, my videos are loading WAY faster than 19KB/s. It's more like 1 MB/s at good times and about half that at bad times.
It's really bizarre. I love it though.
