    How many MB of data did you download while watching the streaming video?

    Found this discussion on another web site ....

    There is a Fair Access Policy for HughesNet Satellite Internet customers, if that is who you are using. Here is a good flash demo of how the HughesNet's FAP works. http://www.getdsltoo.com/Hughes-Net-FAP.asp

    It is odd that you hit your FAP by streaming video, unless it was high quality.

    If you let us know what you where streaming, I'll let you know how long you can until you hit your FAP
