For Netflix, you need at least 1.5 to play a movie.

"To watch movies instantly via your PC or Netflix Ready device, we recommend a broadband connection providing at least 1.5 Mbps. The faster your connection, the better the quality. For DVD quality video and audio, you need a connection providing at least 3.0 Mbps."

I would test your connection speed at:
CNET Bandwidth Meter: Online Speed Test - CNET Reviews (http://reviews.cnet.com/internet-speed-test/)

Most likely it's about half of whatever it's advertised as.

I don't think it will work constantly at the speed and the Hughesnet Fair Access Policy might prevent it at any speed.

I'd be interested to hear some first hand experiences though.
