  1. I run on a mac so that wont work. Ive been continuing to call tech support and what not. Thing is(im 18), its under my dads name and he doesn't really care much about it as long as loading a page is faster. Im only concerned because its running at 20-40% out of 100%. Im mainly concerned about getting that fixed

  2. Ok, ive called tech support and talked to them and told them my situation. They told me that my speeds will be a little bit slower when more people are using the cell phone tower. The thing is, I live in an area where there really isnt that many people at all and all day today i was pinging some sites and the whole morning i was getting ping times between 1500ms-6000ms. When people are using their cell phones it shouldnt have This much of an effect on my speeds. A co-worker of mine uses the same thing, peak hours he experience little to no speed loss at all. Anyone have anyway of helping with this situation?

  3. I just switched from Starband satellite internet to Centennial myBlue wireless internet. Surfing web pages is alot faster and so far the ping times i have been getting are better but have also been worse. Heres the results from my speed test

  5. Ughh! Im tired of satalite internet. Verizon already supplys the whole town i live by with dsl. Im only about 5 miles away from where i can get dsl so why dont they just get it out here?! If anyone knows where i could possibly find out when i will be able to get dsl(like a specific time) Please pm me.

  6. I hope FiOS comes to Michigan. I will be happy if all of Van Buren county can get it in the next few months if possible. I would be so happy to get rid of satalite and beable to play online games  and surf the web when its not snowing or raining! So im ganna be praying!

  7. Well the thing is, cable or dsl does not reach me. Even though im only about 7-8 miles from town and live on a street off a major highway, you would think they would run cable or dsl to us, they dont so i guess im stuck with my very slow connection till i can get cable to dsl. Maybe your right resopalrabotnick, maybe i should clean it off and repoint it, it hasent been cleaned or fixed in anyway and the wind around here has been very strong(50-60mph gusts).

  8. Hello, ive been a Starband user for over three years now. At first i thought the internet i had was fast untill dsl and cable internet came around and got faster and faster while satalite internet got slower and slower. So, i was wondering, i havent changed my dish in over the three years ive had it. Would getting a new satalite dish speed up my internet at all?
