Past talks snarl Hughes-EchoStar
| || Hello Kevin (awildneg)|
As Ian (subculured) said it would have been much better if you had posted your questions and comments in the Satellite Forum. You would have gotten much faster results.
Here is a link to the Satellite Forum: »HughesNet Satellite
Anyway, to answer your question, NO you will not get faster upload or download speeds by going to a larger antenna or amplifying the signal in any way. The only thing a larger antenna is going to do is help you out in regards to rain fade.
You might also want to check out the FAQ on the Satellite Forum. Here is a link to it: »Satellite Forum FAQ
One in particular that might interest you would be:
»Satellite Forum FAQ »Why is my upload speed so low on my DirecPC/DirecWAY/ Earthlink 2-Way Although this pertains to Hughes DirecWay system, it might also apply to Starband. I am not sure.
Good luck and we hope to see you posting soon, on the Satellite Forum. You will be welcomed.
Good luck, Don
