Also, for these or other wireless service, you may be using an optimizer which has the effect that it constantly deletes cookies/cache that can cause the users to timeout. Any such optimizer needs to be disabled.
Some patrons have been able to bypass the error by using a different browser such as Firefox or Chrome.
If this does not work or if you need further assistance with Turbo, please contact Hughes directly for additional troubleshooting assistance.
