  1. I pay $29.99/month on a grandfathered unlimited data plan with Verizon
  2. Got rid of Hughes... For years it was the same game: launch a new satellite up, overload it then lie to paying customers about performance issues. Hughes seems to hope that most people wont ever figure out they arent getting what they pay for....not to mention hope they dont understand data caps. Takes quite an effort to even get past the script readers for a key player in getting problems fixed. What a relief dont have that hassle any longer. Verizon 4G unlimited plan for me.
  3. I have noticed the test on this site showing very high scores on download for me, when in fact my speeds are very slow lately with HughesNet as well as very sluggish web browsing. Im not really surprised as this seems to be the trend with Hughes.....sell all you can get, worry later about providing the service? Last evening HughesNet tech support told me to turn off anti virus and disable firewall.....well today we will just file another BBB claim, simple enough.
  4. I have an unlimited Verizon Wireless 3g data plan for my phone, read somewhere that even though the unlimited data plans are grand-fathered speeds will be throttled after 5Gb of data. I only ever went past the 5Gb once.....myself did not see any reduction of speed. Does anyone know how this works?
  5. My speed has been between 2-4Mbps even during the peak evening hours.....overall not many issues since I have been on the Ka band. https://testmy.net/4LXDct9.png
  6. Im not sure about rollover, however my Download allowance or FAP limit has doubled.
  7. Wildblue?.....for real, got to be kidding me. My experience Hughesnet speeds have improved over the last years.
  8. I have went over my allowed 24 hour data usage with Hughesnet: Bamm.....FAPed :::..

  10. You mean the scientist couldn't convince you not to use your system only in the wee hours or that your system was installed incorrectly but worked in the early am hours.
  11. If your on the newer Ka band HN9000 modem....you should not be seeing that much slowdown as the lowest plan is 1000/128k mine is the 1600/250......working fine, however show me dsl and the sat is gone for sure. :::..

  12. It seems Hughes has again tweaked the service.....no more elite plan speeds. The FAP meter is now working again as well as a new reset time. The new reset time for me is around midnight, prior to the screw up the counter reset at 2:30pm.
  13. Yes, I did experience some down time on Saturday 4-3-10...... when I called in the idiots credited me $79 and schelduled a tech to come replace my transmitter. (Hughes assured me bad radio and possible dish alignment problem) A few hours later all was running fine, but did not notice the speed increase until today. Still getting great speeds, hope it last.
  14. It seems Hughes is getting more generous with the bandwidth? :::..

  15. you right thats what the topic is. and you posted on topic? uh no. So now your going to tell me what I shouldn't be posting about? wow. like the general said, what planet do you call home? why you should call WildBlue for help? 1) you never get your upload plan speed of 256k 2) your downloads reveal speeds of only 13% of your 1500 plan speeds...... 200k (download) and your tech support for how many years at what web site? once again wow! I'm 99% certain your a scientist in disguise. It apperars you are going with plan B and pretend there is no problems with WB? It would be easier to hide your speed issues if you didnt do upload test and dont test in the peak evening hours? just a thought. speed test from marsh_0x 1500/256k WildBlue
  16. Once again your complaing how bad Hughes was.....(which 117w satmex5 was one of the worst) you seem to fail to realize your current speed....your on a plan 1500/256k ? and have yet to show a test result of even 200k up and reveal consistent downloads of a mere 13% of your paid for download speed. Speed test results here I somehow keep forgetting just exactly how this works: Hughes provides slow speeds it called fraud....but when WildBlue provide screaming speeds (13% of plan speeds) its called superior? I would again suggest you talk to the WB almighty customer service and just see what happens...... this ought to be good. or plan b just pretend all is well
  17. again if you want to test side by side test the Hughes Ka band spaceway3.....not the old Ku system? thats like comparing the pro plan to the select? or a wood bat to a composite bat? WildBlue is a Ka band so one might think to test the same service, same plan?
  18. and some more rocket science wondering why its .....by Micwa1 guess that grass wasn't so green after all?
  19. you have done only 3 upload test logged in and none of the 3 are 256k upload.......so the scientist will right away say this is a bad aim? your many downloads do prove obviously you are among the many others not getting what you pay for with a 1500/256k plan......seeing downloads @ under 200/300k ? Its funny you forgot to post the scores at 200k? or even mention it? I dont follow this logic: Hughes slow speeds= trash, oversold, terrible, the worst. Wildblue slow speeds= clouds, rain, bad aim, snow, time of day, test site, server, router, tria, cables, traffic, holiday, school kids, and the list of excuses goes on. http://www.testmy.net/tools/database/db_search.php?s=60&q=marsh_0x&type=user&framed=&limit=30&sort=&d It seems the writing is on the wall.... and I hate to hear about people having to spend $95 on service calls for nothing.

  20. The scientist claim the upload beams do not get congested: Can anyone with a "good dish alignment" using WB post consistent uploads speeds all hours of the day? (early morning, mid-day and evening)
  21. Obviously your not aware of Hughes current FAP policy (free tiime 2-7am, tokens) etc... and since WB is so much better than Hughes....the same plan should show better speeds up and down? Not that I never had problems with Hughes, but current day side by side: Its raining here pretty good, lots of heavy cloud cover and windy: still good with Hughes Ka band :::..

  22. My own experience with the Ka band is that the weather has much less impact on performance? At any rate please test as often as you can all hours of the day to see the true speeds. The true equipment test would be to run several test anywhere between 3-6am then compare with the evening results. When I was looking to switch WB told me could expect to see no less than 80% of plan speeds? so a 1500/256k plan should expect to see 1200/200k or very close.
  23. ummmmm no upload I guess? I think if the upload and download test were run morning and evening.....the capacity issue would be easily seen. The scientist say the uploads do not slow during peak hours, but yet its rare to see 1500/256k plan get the said 80% consistently, especially during the evening hours.
  24. Could you please log in while speed testing.......? Myself am seriously amused at the WBworld forum answers to customers speed problems.
