Got my Hughesnet Gen 5 system up and running on Aug.2 (see pic)

Have gotten 45/7 mbps average most times since. Some variation but overall performing as advertised. Uploads do seem to vary more (can be 1-3 mbps at times).
Most everything works well. I have tested numerous streaming apps as well as Pandora and IHeartRadio.
One exception is Sling. It just doesnt seem to work well on 600-700 ms latency. Always buffers and lags even on medium quality. Had to cancel because it was just unuseable.
Went to PlayStation Vue and it is rock solid and great looking (albeit a bit more $$).
Netflix has been excellent, thru maybe 30 hrs of binge watching. I use Amazon Fire to connect. Excellent response.
So, overall, I am a happy camper.
We are fulltime Rv'ers summering in Salida CO.
