What is the maximum bandwidth allowed by HughesNet? What are the download speeds that you are getting?

It depends on how much you pay and the associated service plan..........the modem is on a Pr-Plus Plan.......1200 down/up to 512 up these are burst speeds ..........rarely will you achieve these speeds consistently.

Biggest problem with Hughesnet is the FAP. Once you hit the limit the next 24 hours are so slow you wish you had dialup again. We used Hughes for many years but it has severe limitations.

Hughesnet is not a download service, pure and simple.
They now have a token system that allows you to pay a fine to restore your service..............I have never been FAP'd, seems it is download thing...for those in need......but for browsing , research, trading stocks etc, email, it cheap and reliable. It a satellite connection after all and really now...... email on the beach is all I ever asked for and added bonus of Skype ...........Gone Diving!

275 MB is the FAP limit per 24 hour period. That is not a lot of info to download. Look at a few pics on your friends Facebook and you are done. Did not hear about the new system to buy out of FAP. Any ideas on cost?

You can also have un-limited download between 2:00 AM EST and, I believe, 7:00 AM EST. You can also download a program from Hughesnet to automate the file download process during the night and also provide a meter icon in your tool bar that gives you an indication of your usage with a red bar when you are approaching FAP limit.

What year was the RECEIVER manufactured? Was the receiver receiving this year/last year? Is the receiver updated/outdated and null 'n void?
