  1. I am on the pro plan(1536Kbps Down, 256Kbps Up), wasting 90 dollars a month for 6.2% of my "up-to" download speed and 47.3% of my "up-to" upload speed. I'm about ready to cancel and switch to dial-up so I can actually use the internet if this doesn't get fixed if the service tech ever actually keeps an appointment. And what would a transponder reassignment do actually? Haven't the slightest idea what that is.
  2. Once again the tech called and cancelled the service call it is now rescheduled for next next Wednesday, the 13th, really getting annoyed.

  3. Thanks for the quick response, got 2 sets of these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231219. Should see a nice improvement over my current ram, its got two 2 GB sticks and two 1 GB sticks all running at 400 Mhz and latency is (6-6-6-18).
  4. Was wondering if anyone knew of a way to find out what voltage and cas latency ram would be supported in my system, the retailer and motherboard manufacturer "cant find the voltage specifications in there database." Which is making upgrading my ram a harder choice than it should be... I believe the best i can use is 8 GB's(2 GB's max allowed in each slot) of 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) and the motherboard supports dual-channel support on four DIMMs, so I will be getting two dual channel 4 GB(2 GB x 2GB) kits, but what I select would depend on the voltages supported. Was a
  5. Scheduled to be there from 1-6 p.m. so should be horrible when he or she arrives.
  6. The tech guy was supposed to be at my house Saturday night to fix whatever problem there is or isn't, unfortunately I got a call in the morning from him and he rescheduled for next Thursday night because it was too cold. I was like are you serious, don't you have a coat. Though in his defense there was a weather advisory for a -30 degree wind chill. So i guess I'll let you guys know on Thursday night or Friday if any improvements are made. Will do just send me a pm with your email address and I'll get it to you soon as I get back to my house, hanging out at my dads atm and I hav
  7. On the 1.5 Mbps down package...tech will be here on Saturday, I'll let you know if anything gets better.
  8. Don't believe wireless works out where I am my verizon phone hardly gets service at my house lol, requires driving up the highway for ten minutes to place a call. There is a local wireless provider but its pay per usage(MB) and for the price, the avg 80Kbps up and down reported by a friend I'd rather have dial up
  9. Well since I talked to them my speed can go higher then the lowest plan, where before it wasn't even close. So I believe some kind of change was made whether or not they admit to it. Well if the problem is overselling as most seem to believe, I have a hard time understanding how you figure that. Wouldn't it merely be up to whether or not customers were heavily using the service at the time they come? Now if it were my old cable company I'd agree wholeheartedly as I was paying for 20Mbps down and sometimes I'd call in when it was slow(5-10Mbps) and they'd tell me its fin
  10. miraculously the downloads like 5 times faster than last nights this morning...
  11. Hello, not sure if anyone here still has the Wildblue service (probably wiser than I and switched by now ), but if your having issues I might be able to help. When I started with Wildblue(pro plan) I had no issues at all and couldn't understand where all the complaints I'm seeing here were coming from. As the above tests show I had nothing to complain about lol. In October I decided to downgrade to the lowest plan to save some money as bills were getting tight, still no problems with service. I was getting around advertised speed at any time of day with no slow downs. Now
