Thought there was a firmware upgrade pending?

Have had my Home Fusion several months now, initially experiencing random lockups like everybody else. Several forum responders said "firmware fix coming". Well, mine still locks up about once a week. The modem/router blinks orange (above Internet), but both LEDs on the cantenna are green. That suggests to me that the cantenna is locked to the tower, but that the modem/router lost lock with the cantenna. Power cycling both units at the cable junction box has so far fixed it every time. Was this pending "firmware fix" just an item on somebody's wish list?

I see you finally left Hughesnet. I couldn't fight the evening slowdowns anymore so I switched to Millenicom/Sprint Unlimited Plan. Sprint pulled the plug on them so now I'm on Millenicom/Verizon 20 GB/Mo LTE plan.

Well, I looked at Millenicom - and didn't see any advantage. They want $70/mo for 20 gigs, that's what I pay Verizon. Plus, to get free equipment and installation from Verizon, I had to commit to a 2 year contract. Having said that - if Millenicom is still in business when my Verizon contract's up - I may buy data from them rather than from Verizon. I don't like the way Verizon counts bits and bytes.

I had the Millenicom/Sprint Unlimited plan $59 until Sprint pulled the plug on them. Switched over to the Millenicom/Verizon 20 GB LTE Hotspot for $69. Got the Novatel 4620 LTE free because of the Sprint cancellation and just set it anywhere and connect my devices. Will support up to 10.
