Hughes Satellite

Q: I am using Hughes net satellite for Internet connection.  Do you have a required speed for the unit to work?

A: We have had a few customers connect their thermostats via satellite internet but they have experienced more than normal disconnects/reconnects, this was something the users were trying to sort out with their satellite providers to improve. The ecobee thermostat does not require a lot of bandwidth, typically 1kb every 15min.
