Enjoy! - Vic Kirby, vic [- at -] vickirby.com, photography.vickirby.com, 145-0586

HughesNet Satellite Internet Token Bank - HughesNet has a Fair Access Policy, or "FAP," which limits the amount of data you can download each day. Whe the limit is exceeded, the system speed drops to something like that of a dial-up telephone modem. The FAP reduction can last for up to 24 hours. This can be pretty frustrating when attempting to download large videos or streaming audio programs. To help keep track of your daily usage, you can download and install HughesNet's Status Meter widget here: services.hughesnet.com/service_tools/Status_Meter/index.cfm

Many HughesNet customers are not aware that HughesNet provides one free "restore" token each month that can be applied to immediately restore service to full speed if the customer goes over their FAP limit. HughesNet also makes additional tokens available for purchase for around $10 to $15, depending upon your service plan.

Announced this last week, HughesNet has introduced a new "Token Bank" feature; if you don’t use your free monthly Restore Token, you can carry it over to the following month up to a maximum total of three tokens. There is no additional charge for the new feature and it has already been automatically added to everyone's service plan. Additional tokens are still available for purchase. For more information about HughesNet's FAP Policy and the new Token Bank feature, go here: www.hughesnet.com/residential-satellite-internet/faqs/fair-access-policy.cfm - alan [- at -] hughes.net
