This s a highly suspicious posting most likely coming from an Exede source. I used Hughesnet in the past and had no problem streaming. It was too slow however. The hope now is that with Gen5, the speeds will improve. I will be switching to Hughesnet as well because of the fraudulent download charges by Exede. Used to be 200-300 MB's a day. Now it is one GB a day with no Netflix streaming and only google news and emails.
Unfortunately they'll be the ones pulling the strings as far as getting out of their agreement goes. So you'd have to work exclusively with them to do that. We'll be more than happy to have you as a customer if that happens though!
