I've just found the phase 3 awards for NYS broadband initiative and, if I read the census block ID correctly, it looks like our block is awarded to Hughes. (Which is pissy because less than a mile down the road, a local cable company is installing fiber)The minimum requirements of the grant on the rfp are 25 mbps, 150 GB or better cap, 49. installation and 60. per month. Which is almost half what we are paying now. Plus we purchased lifetime lease. But...I have not read good things re Hughes. And..the silver plans, from what I can tell, seem to have lower priority data allowances. I have not seen the Hughes nys broadband plans yet but end of year is the stated roll out for all programs. Just how bad is Hughes and are the lower data allowances for viasat unlimited plans the wave of the future?
