  1. Hi there 56 Wrecker, All I have to say is I'm not the only one to get zapped with the new wild blue, or via sat or what ever they call it, wonder how long it will take for them to over load via sat one?? Any bets, Mine with Exceed was great till today, had trouble getting on all day and noone answering the phone at my local money funnel, Damn you would think I would have learned after 6 years on wild blue, I've been on Exceed one month and trouble all ready just like they did on wild blue only faster speeds to begin with boasting 10 mgz today it was so slow I couldn't even get on the home pag
  2. I called Wild Blue about a month ago and talked to three different techs, none of them had even heard of a new bird going up through WB, one said it was a hoax someone started passing around on the net.

  5. I've been with Wild Blue for several years and they have never done anything but over sell the beams available. I am on beam 34 and there was so many complained about slow service that they suspended sales on the beam and I thought well finally they are going to do something but as usual they only suspended sales for one week and no difference in speed as a matter of fact the speed went down ever farther. I have jumped through their hoops for several years now and they sent a tech out to check my system which he said was 100% as far as the equipment and alignment. But he changed the Trio just

  7. Man this is getting old, when is Wild Blue going to stop lying to their customers? I called customer service and complained so many times I feel like a switchboard operator, nothing ever get's better they throttle your speeds up for a week or two then back to the same old 400 to 600kbs down with around 90kbs up and the upload can't be tested and get a real answer because they are using compression according to tests on another speed test site wonder why Test my doesn't report it when you run speed tests here. I admit I was actually testing at around 1000kbs down a month ago then all of a sudde
  8. Hi, I live in Okla. and have been fighting with tech support for about a year and a half now, for the last month they have done something which I call a smoke screen, all of a sudden my speeds which were usually around 500 to 700 kbps jumped to 1000 to 1500kbps but no change in the actual physical speed on the net, pages taking forever to load, or timing out and video out of the question, wonder what kind of hanky panky crap they are trying to feed me now? I am paying for the Pro Pack and getting basic start pack speeds. It's funny I came to test my and checked my speed and it would show aroun
  9. Well I have to admit Wild Blue did get their speeds up according to the speed tests but nothing seems to be moving any faster on the net, still no streaming video, pictures won't load on emails for a start, I think there is a smoke screen here when it comes to testing Wild Blue's download speed, then today my browser wouldn't even start, when I finally got on and after four or five tries got Test My to load, it showed my download at no higher than 500KBPS all day long had a update trying to download and the speed on it was down to 25KBS, guess these folks will never get it right, I have worked
  10. You might check your drivers for the Sony, my Sony came with my Gateway PC, everything went great until I had to do a clean-install of vista and Microsoft did away with the original drivers and installed their generic drivers, and they did not work for the Sony, and my original OS disk wouldn't work either because Microsoft had me to download SP-2, they worked with me for about a month trying to get the Sony to work to no avail, then they sent me one of their repair disks and had me do a in-place up date, now the Sony still doesn't work, the firewall drivers in my AVG Professional are corrupte
  11. You aren't the only one I think everyone with Wild Blue is getting swindled, I have the Pro Pack, advertised speed is 1500kbps or 1.5mbps or 150kbs. Upload is supposed to be 256kbps. Here's what I get. :::.. testmy.net test results ..::: Download Connection is:: 486 Kbps about 0.49 Mbps (tested with 512 kB) Download Speed is:: 59 kB/s Upload Connection is:: 134 Kbps about 0.1 Mbps (tested with 386 kB) Upload Speed is:: 16 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net (Main) Test Time:: 2010-04-19 02:38:01 GMT D-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-8YW16BIUG U-Validat
  12. I know where you are coming from I have a lot of those speeds, I have been testing my speeds since last Sept. and no the calls to tech support don't help, the last repair tech that came out changed the stinger on my dish and said that would fix it, I had him come in and ran test my, guess what still getting speeds of around 500 kbps, on a good day it might get up to a screaming 700 kbps, that is just wonderful for a pro pack that is supposed to deliver 1500 kbps. or 1.5mbps. It just blows my hat off that they will stand there and lie to everyone. I should only be paying 1/3 of the $90.00 per m
  13. I've been with Wild Blue about 5 years, at first the speeds were as advertised, but after about 30 days the speeds started to slide down hill, they got so bad the I couldn't even open my browser, I called and raised hell and the speeds went back up for a few days and right back down, that's been the scenario for the past few years, I thought about Hughes but after reading some of the war stories from their users it is doing the same thing Wild Blue is, I hear about the fine print in the contract saying they do not guarantee theirs speeds from the git go, but like a lot of people I didn't even
  14. Hi General Lee, Like you I didn't receive a manual when they installed my system about five years ago, as a matter of fact all I got was the page I signed., I have recorded my up down speeds from last Sept till now, like you still setting in the dirt as far as the speed is concerned, Like you I have jumped through all the hoops with tech support and had repair out, their newest tactic is to change some of the parts of the dish it's self, and say try that, well the equipment isn't the problem, never has been. You are right about the overcrowding, it only logical if there is band width for 1 mi
