In the past few days there have been 4 reports on other forums of 7000 users receiving the FAP one-day rollover feature. They are all on satellite 91, but on three different transponders, 985, 1070, and 1410.
Anyone here seeing the rollover? (your FAP bucket would say 850 instead of 425)
still nothing on 99 (Galaxy 16) transponder 1010, but it's encouraging to see it happening somewhere in 7000land. i did get the free restore tokens, but it's not enough to have a real party with. this rollover would be ideal for us fulltimers who move every few days. it would be nice knowing that when i land i'll have two days worth of megabytes.
i got my 6 "free" restore tokens back on march 27 as a consolation prize for being on the bottom of the fap rollover implementation. the text of the hughesnet email was as follows:
Dear HughesNet Member,
You may have noticed that you recently received additional FREE tokens. These free tokens were given to you as a thank-you for being a loyal HughesNet Member, and to show you that we appreciate your patience as we work to roll out new features such as the Download Bank to all of our Members. You do not have to do anything to receive these tokens – they were automatically added to your account. To access your complimentary tokens, log in to the Restore Token section on MyHughesNet.com.
Glenn, restore tokens instantly refill your FAP bucket. One free per month, and more can be purchased.
These tokens were never available to Motosat customers. Apparently they could have been, but Motosat couldn't be bothered with the work it would have taken to get them implemented. Mobilsat does them for their customers, although I don't think it is as easy as it is for Hughes-Direct. Someone (I think it was Bill) said that RTC has said they are working on an implementation.
