HughesNet.com — worse than dialup!
After upgrading from 56k dialup to the hughesnet hn9000. I decided it was time to finally do the much needed updates from microsoft i had been put off.
While it was downloading, i called and canceled my dialup service from bellsouth (I have had for 10 years now) . Within 2 hours i had reached the fap usage limit (200mb / day) . I was unable to load a single webpage afterwards. The connection would timeout before i could even load the yahoo mail home page. I read over the paperwork and discovered the fap that i was never shown or told about. It was in there. I setup windows and my download manager to start at 3:15am daily and stop themselves at 6:45am. Unfortunately, during the night the router shutdown 16 times. The next day i was without internet service for 2 hours. It finally came back up. I decided to do a speed test. The 192. 168. 0. 1 page said i was nolonger limited by the fap so i began my test. About 10 seconds later, my net crashed for 2 more days. Customer service? Thats a joke! You could have better support from local teenagers.
When the net service came back (On its on without changing anything on router or computer) . I thought i'd just skip the tests and go straight to my online game (Played on dialup for 5+ years) . Guess what. . . It timed out. I was shocked that my new highspeed internet couldn't even keep up with a basic online game. After some packet logging, i discovered at 99% of the udp packets sent out never reached their destination. I was receiving random packets that were not for me. I was also receiving 1000's of malformed packets. I started to look through the router and discovered turbopage ttmp status was down and qos was off. Turbopage ttmp randomly turns on and off all day and each time it does my internet service goes out for around 15 minutes. Sad to say, i had a much more reliable service, ability to play my online game, cheaper bill, and actually got more downloaded and done with my dialup service. I'm going to turn my dialup backon.
My internet went down before i could post the message. I had to wait 2 hours just to submit this complaint. I'd recommend bellsouth dialup over hughesnet. Hoping verizon's gets a real highspeed wireless service here soon.
