You made a good choice. Things are looking up for HughesNet. There won't be congestion on their system in just a few weeks.
ViaSat claims the ViaSat-2 satellite is launching in early 2017 but nobody can say when. Arianespace does not have ViaSat-2 listed on it's 2017 launch manifest, yet ViaSat claims Arianespace will do the launch for them.
HughesNet however just added another satellite with larger capacity than ViaSat-1 today, Sunday December 18, 2016.
