  1. angry.gif I for the 1st time can say, Wild Blue your system sucks for sure. I've been with them for some 4 years, maybe getting my posted speeds of 1meg knuppel2.gif 6% of this entire time. Well I'm done with you and your shit. icon_smile.gif I now have 3G service and its nice to run at 3meg 95% of the time..... smitten.gif Thank you ATT for 3G

    If you have other [better] options, that would be the logical thing to do. Good luck!

  2. I'm sorry for my language.  I have tried to "sort it out" in the public forum and in private messages.  It's a lost cause with this is person.

    I can't even post my experience to the official forum without it getting copied over to another forum by some cynical stalker to fuel their sicking agenda. Seriously?  :-

    Anyways, yes I am (as is all people on WB) experiencing some heavy congestion (more than usual) during prime time.  But to bitch and moan on WBworld?  The mods just work for WB, they don't control what goes on in the sky.  They are trying to fix this by launching another sat, but it can't be done until 2011.  So we must wait til then, and hopefully it tones down the congestion like promised.  These birds can only hold so much, and WB does close down beams regularly, but they still have to have more customers to come in, regardless, to pay the bills. I mean duh.  Nothing is perfect.

  3. No I was comparing the "bucket" to WB and HughesNet.  Sorry you missed that.

    Honestly, I don't know why you're so concern with WB anyways.  Doesn't make any sense.  You're not the one paying them every month for an unreliable service (for some people that post).  Why are you so hot and bothered?

    You seem to forget that I once had HN, and the FAP and I didn't see eye to eye.  That's one reason why I switched.

  4. It's through the proxy Propel (and no that's not an accurate speed, just a glitch).  See here: http://wildblueworld.com/forum/showthread.php?t=2867.  Propel is an accelerator that we are so hoping WIldBlue starts to test it and use it for its customers.  It would save on bandwidth (because it compresses data) and faster speed.

    You all know what my speeds are with wildblue, so there is no point in doing a daily or hourly test on here to further fuel some people's agenda. Satellite currently doesn't ever have a CONSISTENT speed, and thus it would be silly to expect more.  Thank you.

  6. mudmanc4, tell your INSANE members to stay away from WildBlue World.  I thought you all were adults, but it seems fikester is still bitter, that uh WildBlue gets 'worst' speeds than him?

    He has spammed over 10 posts with the same crap, linking to this post and my speed results.

    GIVE. IT. UP.

    Perhaps the basics of this FORUM is to determine which provider is "better".  But I did not create THIS POST to be that way.

    After seeing fikester show his ass like he is part of 4chan or some S#!t, this why I will not be participating anymore on this forum

    Thank you.

  7. Umm, well I created this thread to show what the speeds are during peak hours, not to debate what which company is "better".

    Seriously I don't think WB expected to reach such a huge milestone so quickly in 4 years.  I do believe the sats capacity has been reached.  Hoping that ViaSat-1 resolves it. 

    It should be noted that I was on HN (I think West 89/87 or something) before SPACEWAY 3 and this was the same results, slower speeds during peak hours.  Apparently SW-3 solved that issue.  But I still don't like HN as a company. It's like they are trying to be a monopoly with satellite internet access.  :roll:

    Download is really not the problem, it's the decreasing upload. :-

    You see it's not better in the AM.

    @mudmanc4  all those tests go back to when I first got WildBlue in January.  I think I skipped a few months (wasn't logged in doing tests).  But they are scattered all during the day.

  9. By request to do these tests during prime time, where obviously more people are on.

  10. I recall reading all the great news about Spaceway3 reducing pings, higher speeds etc. a few years back.....I'm just not impressed. The ViaSat-1 sounds great though, guess we will see. I noticed WB has quit installing again after checking my zip code.

    Ok so if they did allow you to sign up (obviously they are over capacity for your gateway) and then you suffer from the SLOW and SLUGGISH speeds.  Would you be happy then?

    They can't just throw a new satellite into orbit whenever they hit their capacity. 

    Hopefully ViaSat-1 will solve some for this (for at least a few years).

  11. What a WB mod/employee said about it:

    WB Steph's

    Hi everyone, thought I would check to see if there are questions from today's announcement. Everything will remain status quo. Our customer care will remain in the U.S. and pricing will be the same. The $39.95 mentioned is for areas in the west that have a lot of open capacity and that price is only for 12 months. Then it goes back to $49.95 per month. The good news about the acquisition is that ViaSat will be launching the first next generation satellite in about 18 months which means A LOT more capacity, product enhancements and increased throughput speeds. Could be 5MB down.

    http://wildblueworld.com/forum/showthread.php?p=18290

    Sounds like this could really turn out good.

  12. And the spin doctor makes the the part about " provides a user experience similar to most DSL services." disappear.

    Some people actually got WildBlue, when they had DSL at the door. And that's because WildBlue said it was similar to DSL and the quoted WildBlue speeds were faster than the user could get with DSL at their location. And other posters(various forums) comments were, "What did you do that for?" "You have DSL at the door and now you find out that WildBlue is a lot slower than the DSL". Advertising kills.

    Also from Wildblues facts.... "you are ready to surf the Internet at lightning fast speeds".  I guess lightning has slowed down a bit over the years. A 1000ms ping is not lightning fast. Best that can be done on satellite is 600ms, but thats without the DAMA software and other variables.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demand_Assigned_Multiple_Access

    I can't make anything disappear that's not there.  And, THAT is not there. (http://wildblue.com/aboutWildblue/qaa.jsp#5_1)  Can you direct me to where it can be found?

    "lighting fast speeds"

    The same shit HN preaches.  That is marketing, not customer support.

    If a user was that delusional about Internet access, then they probably shouldn't be on here.  A quick search on Wikipedia will tell you what you won't and will expect on satellite.  Too bad they weren't that "smart" to research, but smart enough to believe everything someone tells them or reads.

    While I don't understand the reasoning behind WB's choice to use DAMA, I'm SURE they had good reason.

    LOL!  I'm joking, I promise.  Seriously, I don't know WHY they did it, but it seems to be a mistake.

    HN and WB will be having some competition soon, from O3b.  That will use medium earth orbit to reduce latency -- some.  Will be interesting to see how that turns out. :P

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O3b_satellite_constellation'>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O3b_satellite_constellation

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O3b

    "Latency is reduced by putting the satellites in a MEO orbit, less than a twentieth of a second away at light speed as opposed to the half second needed to reach geostationary orbit."
