The connection is effected by the rain and bad weather. Many times no connection. The status meter is good and keeps you from going over. A bit expensive for what you get. I worry about our tree falling on the receiver in bad weather. I will not recommend Hughes to anyone with in the city limits. If you are in a remote area and no other service is around then it is your answer.

We have recently moved to Virginia and this is our first time using Cox Communications. I am not sure if it normal for having long outages, slow speed, and overall crappy internet with this provider but that is what we have. We do get a good rate due to subscribing through our apartment complex and I am wondering if that is the root of the problem, not Cox themselves. Overall unreliable service.
