Slow and Steady
I have had Hughesnet for two years and it has generally been reliable during that time. However, it is slow (like all previous generation residential satellite internet) and really makes almost any internet task a slow chore compared to modern broadband.
Currently I use it as a backup to my Exede setup. However, I plan on cancelling my 'classic' Hughesnet installation and replacing it with a 2nd Exede installation (or a Hughesnet Gen4 system).
Works but slow
I got Hughesnet last year and it was quite expensive. Where I am there are not many options so it was one of my few choices. Overall it works but it is very expensive for me because I do not have much money. I am going to look into getting hotspot capability for my cell phone and see if that will work better.
