Report Wild Blue Internet speeds in Wildblue / Exceed / ViaSat Posted September 23, 2009 This thread was already degraded when I got here. Wildblue states: "WildBlue's always-on broadband Internet connection provides a user experience similar to most DSL services" Because Wildblue isn't an "always-on" broadband Internet connection? Why? Because it may go out when it comes a storm. "Raise the monthly price." Yeah, that'll go over REALLY well! WB has launched another satellite in orbit that is supposed to be on later this year that will help out in the south. About the WB forums. Most of the time it's the same thing, different day, different people. They come on there DEMANDING something, because they can't play online games or that their VPN doesn't work. Then there are them that need legitimate help or answers. A lot of the "regulars" first came on there not too happy with WB, but the mods helped them in a way that Customer Service could not. Because apparently you know Tech Support only can say what they are "told" to say. I don't know who you are talking about advertising. All I EVER see is HughesNet commercials on my TV. You're right, they make sure to go out of their way to grab a poor dial up soul (and even people on DSL that THINK satellite is a newer technology and it's better) and promise them the world and then some, and then have them sucked in for 2 years -- nagging them about every 6-12 months to upgrade to their "newer and best" modem. Shit. You got that right.
