We used Hughesnet and were not impressed. Went back to Methownet. It is okay if it is your only option, which is the case for some people in the valley. We have all the equipment and would be willing to sell it if you are interested. 509-429 2655.

I read a bunch of reviews and decided I didn't want to take 3 hours for a 45 minute show to buffer. That's so 90's!

We used this thing for a while a couple years ago.

Streaming is actually fine. What is not fine is almost everything else. Because most web apps these days - most web sites - take many round trips between the server and you before the view even renders, and on satellite the latency of a round trip is almost a second (compared to 50ms normally) - a lot of things time out before even starting. The same is true for most security systems, smart home electronics, etc. Basically satellite internet is a desperate measure if you cannot get anything else.
