I used to be a Tech Support Supervisor at an ISP, DirecWay was one of our vendors. People had lots of problems with it back then, but I've been away from it for a good five years or so now, so it may have improved since then.
Before you sign up, ask if HughesNet has a 'Fair Access Policy', and ask for the details of it. Sometimes they limit the amount of data you can download on a daily/weekly/monthly basis, and once you reach that threshold you have to wait for a certain amount of time to pass before you can use the service again. It's done to keep a handful of people from generating so much traffic that it bottlenecks the service for everyone. If there is a Fair Access Policy, the terms may allow the service to still suit your needs just fine, but its worth looking into so there are no surprises.
