Vonage I had the same problem today when I made a call using my vonage router with Hughesnet



I had the same problem today when I made a call using my Vonage router with Hughesnet equipment, etc...

Here's the deal. To have a nice clean call where they can hear you as well as you can hear them, you need (according to Vonage) 90kbps UP speed. Hughesnet sells 2 residential plans - the basic residential where you are sold "128kbps" off peak UP speed which translates to roughly 70-80kbps UP speed during peak hours. (It says so in their literature on the site.) The "professional" home plan claims up to 200kbps UP off peak which translates to 125kbps UP speed during peak hours. (It's also in the literature on the site.) In other words, IT SHOULD WORK JUST FINE EVEN DURING PEAK HOURS.

When I had the very same problem you described, I did a speed test and found that I was only getting 45kbps UP speed with my "200kbps professional service plan... in other words I was being ripped off for the UP speed I was paying for. That is a technical issue that HUGHESNET is responsible for. After all they advertise 125kbps UP speed during peak hours with the professional plan but I wasn't getting what I was sold. I bet your problem is similar.

It could be caused by poor dish alignment where download speed is less critical of an issue with a poorly aimed dish compared to what will happen to your UP speed when the dish isn't aligned well enough. There can be other reasons why UP speed is slower than it's supposed to be but I'd just act like the squeaky wheel and make them fix what they should to get you the service you are paying for as it is advertised. Don't let anyone there cop out to providing you less than what they claim they should be giving you on their site. After all you either paid $600 for the equipment or are paying a jacked up monthly fee for the bandwidth you need to make Vonage work.

VoIP over a satellite connection is marginal at best, and unworkable at worst.
When I made the "choppy" phone call, I experienced a delay of only about 4/10ths
For all you folks out there that want the real reason that VOIP doesn't work on HughesNet
I've lurked on this board for a while, but now I really need some help. I just ordered

Thanks- I will try that test. What about the faster packages available from HughesNet?
I would try the test first, and see how much bandwidth you have available. If its
Thanks arcking. I will be back out in Colorado next week and I'll run/post the results
