Re: Why can't HNG4 reach the same speeds as Exede12? what beam are you on? and what speedtest are you using? HN's speedtest or a 3rd party speedtest site?
I use both hughesnet speed test and speedtest.net I'm familiar enough with satellite internet to know how to get a pretty close reading on speedtest.net generally. But you got to really watch the meter because it comes in burst.
I got no idea what beam. Where do I find this information?
hughesnet123, open up your system control center »192.168.0.1, then click the system info tab on the top, then look near the bottom.. a box labeled "Satellite" for the beam ID. There is some other useful stuff in there too.
