HughesNet Status Meter is a Windows program intended for HughesNet satellite Internet users to monitor their traffic and connection performance. It provides real time information about data utilization, download and upload speeds, as well as signal strength.
View data usage
The main purpose of this utility is to display data usage in a clear and concise manner. You can view daily, weekly, and monthly traffic consumption, enabling you to avoid exceeding the allowed ceiling. This is particularly important when you have limited data plans and want to avoid additional charges or throttled speeds.
There are detailed statistics about download and upload speeds, giving you insights into the network performance. By monitoring these metrics, you are able to identify potential issues or bottlenecks and take appropriate actions to optimize your Internet experience. If you would like to diagnose network problems by generating UDP packets, you may try another application called UDP Test Tool.
What is more, you have the possibility to view the signal strength indicator. This feature helps you to assess the quality of your satellite connection and reposition your dish for optimal operation. In addition, you can set usage thresholds and receive notifications when you approach your data limit or encounter unusual problems.
