  1. I agree that ka band is much more tolerant of rain than ku band,but a heavy rain will knock it right out. I lose the signal on my Directv at the same time as the Wildblue signal goes down. I have gone below 80% of the advertised speed the few times I have been on in the evening,but over all I am at or above the advertised down load speed. I haven't tested the up load speed that often, but I don't remember ever getting the 256 that is advertised. I am happy if I can upload at 20kps consistently. Most of my neighbors have switched to Wildblue from Hughes and most of us are very happy when
  2. Here is the upload test. Both up and download tests were done with rather heavy rain, which has been shuting me down for periods of time. So these two tests are slower than my average. I agree that the speeds slow down in the the few times I am online in the evening. I am rarely awake past 8PM as I have to get up at 3:30AM to feed the cows. :::..

  4. My experience with Wildblue is completely different. I pay for 1500KPS log on and nearly always log on at 1700kps at testmy. It does slow down at peak times, right now I at 1200kps. I have had wildblue now for year. Before that I had Hughes for 5 years. The last year with Hughes I rarely got dialup speeds, and i could not get past the tech support in India. Other than having to reboot the modem once a month or so, I am happy with Wildblue. I also like the fact that Wildblue has their own forum, where you can ask questions of Wildblue and get answers from their techs quickly. I wish
