Who's your provider? I get 25-30 Mbps download and 5-6 upload for $29 per month from Comcast.

If you are using DishNet(HughesNet) then you likely have reached your fair access policy. That is how much data you subscribe to, and then it slows down to 128kbps. You can check your data by accessing your modem, or going to your mydish.com account and checking under my broadband.

As far as I know they don't do internet support here. Your bandwidth seems really low but your ping time is actually pretty typical for satellite. (I'm assuming Hughes net is two-way satellite meaning a packet has to travel up to geosynchronous orbit, back down, through the internet, and back, then back up to geosynchronous orbit and back down.)

Hughesnet via Dish satellite - it's ridiculous. I live in a rural mountain area and we get raped daily. $70 for 10Gbs during normal hours + more when everybody is freaking SLEEPING.

No other options except cell service via Verizon, quite possibly the only other corporation who sucks as bad as DISH

have you considered an ATT hotspot? You might try calling them and see if the 250gig or 500 gig plan is still available
