  1. I have windows7 64 on a new desktop....so far like it, have not yet installed 7 on my laptop.
  2. When I read post about Hughes is no good....Im posting my current experience with HughesNet. As far as WB world goes the reading is getting better all the time. More similar complaints and more BS told to them....its actually quite funny. Unlike WB World forum....I am allowed to post in this forum as a HugheNet customer. At one time when I had Hughes Ku band I was going to swtich to WB, almost happened. Very glad found a few honest people to post a true experience with the service. WB world does not want the truth be told......WB is over capacity
  3. You were comparing Hughsenet bucket to Hughesnet and WB? -again do the math, with the free 2am-7am and free token/30days. Sounds to me like you might be upset because the grass wasn't greener on the other side? Could you post some speeds? note: dont forget to sign in out when testing.
  4. Check my prior post....I do not sugar coat my true experience, If Hughes is having speed issues its posted as so, any of the old timers on here can verify that. As far as the bucket goes are you comparing it to DSL or cable......? Obviously no comparison we are talking satellite here. compared to WB bucket do the math.....my speed my bucket, again Hughes more than WB. Note: forgot to mention that Hughes now gives a free token once/ month for customers. Go to the website enter a few numbers....reset FAP instant full speed again bucket empty. - I'm not real concerned with what Hughes or WB is going to do a year from now.....rather more concerned with what service is being provided for my monthly fees today. My install and equipment was free with no contract, can leave at any time.
  5. Im on the pro plus Ka band @ $79/month......Total no other fees are added. 1600/250k 425MB bucket with free period 2am-7am
  6. I'm glad you happy marsh_0x....myself would be calling in complaints. WB let the greed factor ruin what they had going over Hughes. :::..

  10. It seems the prime time slow down problem is normally hidden on other forums.....? The scientist continue to insist on service calls and something must be wrong on the customers end. I found this post on WB world....looks thinks are becoming more evident of capacity issues? http://www.wildblueworld.com/forum/showthread.php?t=3378 Many new satellite users may not realize that if they are getting good speeds in the AM hours....and terrible speeds in the evening hours consistently its highly unlikely there is anything wrong with user equipment.
  11. Could I get some WildBlue users to post up some ping times? scientist are encouraged to reply.
  12. Your comparing WB Ka band to the Hughes older Ku band system.......not the Spaceway3 system. Run the test many times thorughout the evening hours between 5pm-11pm est....be curious of the #'s. uploads too
  13. The sat that will be launched in 2010 is to be placed at 13 E. (Maybe the scientist can see it) I cant. ViaSat-1 is not projected to launch until 2011 for North America at 115W....I still predict 1.5yrs before full release to the public.
  14. WildBlue is simply oversold, over capacity, and waiting for ViaSat1 to launch. The scientist will continue to make excuses, buy time, stall customers until that bird is up and running. This sat is not going to launch anytime soon and when it does expect delays. MY guess would be close to 1.5yrs before they begin install nationwide. List of excuses have seen the WB scientist make about current customers speed complaints: -holiday use -clouds (clouds slow it down, but yet brag of snow on dish) -dish needs re-pointed (guess dish comes out of alignment in the evening-gremblins ) -bad equipment (very low %) -change the customers expected advertised 80% of package speeds to 50% or less most (not all) of the scientist will not post any test results during the evening prime time hours....seem to forget ignore testmy test results are posted (server time GMT -0700 no DST). Yes Hughes has told the lies and spread the BS but very seldom ever seen "system users" spread the lies of not being oversold. Why the scientist (users) are doing this and hiding the truth from fellow customers is beyond me. Its not hard to figure out. I posted one article about "Why ViaSat bought" and "Why WB needed it".....black and white explains whats going on. Maybe when ViaSat1 is installing will be the best thing available, but there is no need to try to hook somebody for a service call or hide the truth from customers when there is a problem with the service provider.
  15. Myself would be very surprised if they find anything wrong at your site if the speeds are good in the AM hours then slow in the evening. I see on other forums the "Rocket Scientists" are getting hit with many more slow speed issues.... don't see the 80% of package speeds getting mentioned much? I would insist on the tech coming in the evening hours and then stall things as much as possible at arrival. -quite a long wait for ViaSat to launch the new bird, even if everything falls into place.
  16. I know the scientist from the WB world are reading: maybe I missed the part about many WB customers need re-pointed and clouds? Keeps talking about "demand" and "capacity"? Writing on the wall....? oh my. It cant be so
  17. It appearers that the WB boat is sinking....... oh my. The scientists in WB world all say WB is not oversold.... simply your dish needs re-pointed or your equipment is bad? I'm entertained by the weather/cloud excuse as well affecting speed.
  18. Your exactly right (Hughes did) not other supposedly "users"?
  19. HughesNet...this is a few months old, but the HD NetFlix demo, now thats amusing. The demo forgot to include the FAP? not sure how big an HD movie would be, but surely its over the 200-500Mb cap? http://voices.washingtonpost.com/fasterforward/2009/11/hughes_satellite_internet_relaunch.html
  20. There are many other forums out there trying to cover this problem up? I'm not sure why? If were to guess thats what they are supposed to do in the WB world? Most will run test strictly outside of the known times of slow down. The scientists are quite amusing to me, more people are questioning there logic of how a dish re-points itself during the early hours of the day then becomes unadjusted during the evening hours. Maybe certain a moon phase...weird? Oversold and greed couldn't have anything to do with it. Almost sure its going to get even better slower.
  21. I'm curious of what the tech comes up with.....?
  22. I didn't notice that before....obviously they are going to reply to the BBB complaint. Myself contact Hughes at least 3x week when an issue arises.....just want what I paid for, its already too expensive when it works perfect? Post a few You Tube videos off AM speed test then PM results......its good free advertisement for WB.
  23. I would at least file a complaint with BBB... and call WB customer service,at least make some noise. If enough people raise a fuss, something will get done. Paying your bill on time monthly and pretending something is wrong on the user end will only make WB happy. Hughes is working fine...does slow for a little while in the evening, but as someone mentioned.....they will continue to migrate a very large number of people to Ka band daily. The cycle just repeats.
