Does your broadband service ever drop out or do you have to manually alter your satellite to keep continuous coverage?

How often do you have to adjust? Do you find that you have to do this more often in certain regions?

It varies, except when you are running around right on the edge of a satellites foot print it's not so much a region thing as an equipment thing. Sometimes the equipment holds out for several months, sometimes things go wonky for a while until the problem gets worked out and repaired. If you are losing it more than twice a week and are solidly in your satellites footprint, you have issues, or that transponder on the satellite has issues.
