  1. hey, i've been out of town. sorry for the late reply. i'm guessing here (i don't pretend to understand satellite technology): i had a service tech at my house change the beam i was on. now it seems it doesn't matter whether i'm running single thread or multi thread. i'ts just slow all the way around. hughesnet forums not helping me....they just tell me it's the "inherent limitations of the technology"...nothing i can do about it. but average speeds measuring in kbps? and what's up with the little random spikes in speed? are they doing that to skew test results so that when i go to customer service they can say "hey, but look, you're speeds aren't always slow?" so, i've put in another service call. i'm going to ask the tech to change the beam back to what it was before. we'll see how that goes. the hughes representative that replied to me on the forums said that both of the gateways that i can be switched to "experience issue frequently". end of discussion. nothing we can do to help. either the technology itself is just really wonky or hughes is manipulating speeds and data.

  2. While in an area with good 5G coverage on the 3.6GHz band, not in a moving vehicle for once, I tried a few speed tests. It appears that ~370Mbps is about the max my Samsung A51 5G phone will get on TestMy and possibly any other browser based test. During the test, the web browser appears unresponsive during the download test, unusually with the figure jumping straight to 100% once the speed hits about 350Mbps. On the other hand, these are my fastest TestMy results to date on a phone: Although the Ookla App got faster (734Mb down), I have recently noticed a design flaw with most midrange 5G phones, including mine - There is no practical way to make use of 5G speed above about 350Mbps even with tethering. Most midrange phones have a USB2 port (USB2 maxes out about 350-380Mbps real world) and 802.11ac Wi-Fi that is not MIMO capable (SISO maxes about 300Mbps real world on an 80MHz channel), two major bottlenecks when tethering. So for my next phone, I need to make sure it has USB3 or Wi-Fi 6 with MIMO...

  4. I posted this on the Avast forum: After being ask some questions about Avast version,Other AV & Malware programs, & OS. This was the answer I got: Note nowhere was my question about the DNS server Avast was trying to use answered. I wanted to know why Avast was attempting to "Phone Home". I have all the send information & the like turned off in Avast. In doing some Searching I found this similar URL. Either click on it or copy & paste it. http://ip-info.ff.avast.com/v1/info You will get some information about your location & other things. So it appears Avast is sending information home.
