New Gen 5 Mobile install with pics

Post#1 » Mon May 15, 2017 8:13 pm

Got our HughesNet Gen5 Mobile Internet system set up and working. No need to call in each time we move it.
We were one of the first people to get this service in the country. Normally the new Gen5 service is only for stationary use but we are allowed to use it as a mobile and that means we don't have to call Hughes to get registered when we move. This is a spot beam service so a lot more complicated. After noticing we were not following pointing procedures, we discovered what we were doing wrong, and it came right up and we locked on to the spot beam. Much easier than we thought it would be. Not much more than setting up a DirecTV portable dish. We got this system through the wonderful folks at
Barb and Joe are great to work with and made it so easy to learn how to make this work for us and got us moved up to get this as we were pressed for time leaving the Tucson area.
Now a few things to know about this mobile service. Hughes requires you to buy a business account through a vendor like above and use a .98 dish unlike a residential .78 oval dish (like a DirecTV dish). So a little bigger to carry around but it is 3' 3" round so not that huge. See the pic below. All you need to know is at the above link and feel free to contact Barb with questions. We could not be more happy with our service. Oh, and BTW Hughes gives you unlimited downloads for the first 20 days so you can update any large files you may need. And if and when you use up your-your download limit they don't cut you off but allow download speeds of about 3 Meg. So even that is fast for satellite internet, me thinks. My old DataStorm F1 dish that I had for over 10 years had a max of 1.2 download speed. With 425 M a day download. With this, I will still have double that speed even when over my download limit. WOW can't beat that.
