yep.... the times it has been frustrating is when i think it is a language problem. it is as if you try to skip fast forward thru all the early questions or state something unrelated to the script they get lost and just repeat the words in front of them. fortunately most of the ones i've dealt with related to hughes can speak well and only a couple have had accents that were difficult to understand, and since i'm bi-lingual, i'm used to listening thru the various accents better than some people are.
on the other hand, I've had a lot of really interesting conversations with some of them, as most of them speak english quite well.. there are times while you sit and wait while you are waiting for a the computer to reboot, or diagnostic software is doing it's thing....... to make the time pass and the best of the frustrating situation, i start asking them questions about where they are, the weather, any food crop shortages, economic things, blah blah blah,,,, and then compare things to here,,,,,,,, the interest actually perks them up and they open up and try harder,,,, plus it is fun to hear about other people's perspectives about the US, etc.

This drives me crazy and is one of the main reasons I want to leave ATT.
Hughesnet is the same??
Many of our greatest American thinkers, men of the caliber of Thomas
Jefferson, Henry Thoreau, Mark Twain, William James, and John Muir, have
found the forest an effective stimulus to original thought.
