  1. So is it your suggestion to avoid those things in order to "improve WiFi connectivity even with internet basic plans", or are you asking for help to improve your "WiFi connectivity"? *3rd party devices/routers Keep in mind that, if one does not have a proprietary WiFi router from their plan provider they must connect a 3rd party router in order to utilize WiFi. *movie apps that require 3 to 6 Mbps internet speed If one's provider doesn't supply adequate speed they won't be able to stream movies, regardless of a WiFi or LAN connection. *simultaneous use of wifi from 6 or more devices Wholeheartedly agree, as the speed will be divided between devices, and not necessarily evenly. And if using the 2.4Ghz band, the WiFi itself could be a choke point, depending on the plan's speed. * unmindful of radio frequencies (i.e. 2.4ghz/5ghz) or lack of info as its reach among others With the 5Ghz band this is normally not an issue, though its range is considerably less than the 2.4Ghz band.

    Won't stay signed in tonight...

    CA3LE, Actually, I just upgraded my desktop to W10 1809 (clean install) and installed Chrome anew. It seems to be fine now. It's likely that resetting it would have done the trick. Thanks for the advice. 🙂
  3. CA3LE, For some reason I keep having to sign in every time I come to the site tonight. If I don't sign in, but click on Download Test and select the 25MB test (size is arbitrary in this case), the page then automatically goes to choosing a server, but with me now being signed in. For some reason it seems to only be doing this in Chrome and not Firefox. I cleared the cache in Chrome but it's not making a difference. Just letting you know.

    My huges net sucks

    You should check what your speed is hard wired to determine whether 30Mbps is your max. You won't get 70Mbps with HughesNet. Max is in the high 40s.

    That's only one test, and most likely due to some type of issue, or even an erroneous test result, which happens. TMN isn't infallible.
  6. You say your speed is always 1Mbps or below, yet those tests don't bear that out. Three are well above that, with one being above HughesNet's advertised speed. You say HughesNet has not once delivered on their proclaimed speed of 25Mbps, yet one of those tests clearly show they have, and two others are within the 60% threshold. If your tests show 45.9Mbps, then you've seen 45.9Mbps, which is nearly twice their advertised speed.

    Confused with Recent Speed Drop

    Judging by the way the speed has picked back up, it's likely that there was some type of issue with your provider that was fixed.
  8. It all depends on what you need it for, and in the area you're talking about you may very well be limited to cell and satellite service. If it's those, you can pretty much forget cutting the cord and you'll probably need something like DirecTV or Dish. I live an hour south of Buffalo and I have HughesNet, which works fine for me. It's the only service I can get, literally, with the exception of dial up.
  9. Who are you replying to? The same question for your second post.

    Have you tried turning off, or pausing, the Video Data Saver, which deliberately throttles your speed when streaming to such that is amenable to streaming in SD?

    Strange result discrepancy...

    Well, I don't know if this is what you were looking for, as again, this wasn't one of MY results. https://testmy.net/compID/6157219504430 I did click default at the top of that Connection ID's results page, but it didn't change anything. The person who ran the test was the same one from this results page... https://testmy.net/quickstats/JEANNE H , but they were using a second computer and weren't signed in to TMN with it, so that particular test wasn't logged under their account.
  12. Any idea why it might give this final result when it's clear that the actual speed never got that high? This is NOT my test, but another HughesNet customer who's having speed differences between browsers. I only noticed this when looking through the person's results and found it odd. First, because I knew that this result must be a glitch (nobody gets speeds that high with HughesNet), and then seeing the even larger glitch when looking at the test result graph. How can the average have been 58.15Mbps when the test never got over 30.84Mbps? A head scratcher, for sure.

    Where'd everybody go?

    Thank you! I just checked it again and noticed it was working before coming here to see if there was a reply. I appreciate you taking a look and fixing it.

    Where'd everybody go?

    I check this quite often, and all of a sudden the list is VERY small. What happened?

    My speed test...help!

    HughesNet has direct competition from Exede. I don't know why you would pay $226 for the 50GB plan, as that's not the price. The maximum price for the 50GB plan is $129.99. With the $14.99 lease fee and taxes, that's maybe $150 total.
