  1. I usually test at 6MB, simply because it's a more accurate display of the performance I get, because most of my downloads are small. But here is an average speed for a 130MB download (and another user on the network was downloading a Windows Update (~50MB): :::..

  4. we raise chickens also, but not even 240, much less the extra 3 Zero's.
  5. Free upgrade from what ? Were you on the old Ku system ? DW-Series terminal ? If so, the smaller dish and 1 watt transmitter for the HN series is sufficient. The bigger dish and 2w xmit is only going to help during rain events, and the HN system already does a good job of mitigating rain fade by automatically increasing power on the xmit side. If it's bad enough weather to knock one of them offline, it's probably severe enough to kill the connection even with a bigger dish and 2w xmit. The only real benefit of having a bigger dish and 2w xmit is for larger commercial packages where upload speed is important. Because even with elite premium (349/month), upload speeds are the same as regular elite, 300kbps. In other words, if you are not a fairly large corporation that must have a good upstream (can go up to 16Mbits on the xmit side), it is not worth it to have the bigger dish/radio. How do you use your system, on a daily average? Do you use a router with a traffic counter? You may be paying for elite and not be needing it. The highest ProPlus plan (which i was on for over a year) was solid as a rock for me. Speeds were always consistent, and while at times you may be able to tell that congestion might be slowing you down a little, those events were not often, and really didn't affect normal browsing activities. I'd say, as long as you do not find yourself hitting FAP frequently, try downgrading to ProPlus. The plan lists 1.6Mbit as downstream speed, and I'd say at least 95% of the time you are running that fast, or faster.. which alot of times it remains above 2Mbits especially during offpeak times. And if anyone hits FAP on the ProPlus, they have issue's other than what they speak about. I have 4 wired clients, that all stay active throughout the day, normal internet activities, watching youtube video's, facebook games.. everyday normal activities, and VERY RARELY hit FAP. It so rare, that I ALWAYS have a free token to use for reset.

  7. Well that is interesting... I was not aware that the beta software code was live yet. You are using the same terminal code that the beta group is on, 082065ab - which contains the building blocks for a new TP. But the GenVersion of your terminal is important, because the new TP has not been ported to Gen3 code yet, and is only live on Gen4 terminals. You can find out which genVersion your terminal is by checking the Advanced LUI (System Control Center) and looking at the ESN number at the top left hand. If it starts with "1101" it is a Gen3, other number indicates a Gen4.

  9. Could you please specify what your commissioning software version is, along with the operating version too.
  10. There has been issue's with the Elite level service plan (Note: that Elite Plus & Elite Premium does not seem to be affected - maybe regular elite is oversold?), I am noticing quite a few reports of dramatic slowdowns on Elite, but as far as I know, only Gen4's were affected. Do you know what generation terminal you are using? I am using Gen3, and from what I have seen, Gen3's are unaffected. More reports from users stating their generation model terminal might be able to shed a little light on what's going on. I am on Elite Premium, and I do not notice any degradation of speeds during the PITs, but web responsiveness definitely seems to be slightly affected, however I do not notice drastic improvements with web browsing at 5-7 Mbits, once you hit around 3.5 - 4 Mbits on satellite, the web browsing aspect does not speed up anymore, it's really only beneficial for the download side of the equation. Elite Premium is sold as the highest consumer tier available, and starts at $349.00/month. But as you can see from my speed tests, if you cant get 5 Mbit because of geographical location, it may be worth it to some of the few who have that much to spend on it. Large (20MB) downloads average 4.8-5.0 Mbits, but if you are downloading smaller items, expect to see 5.0-8.0 Mbits. Still only 300kbps upstream (which is the same as advertised for Elite/Plus) But I dont personally care about uploads, my network rarely needs to use uploads except for maybe pictures to facebook and whatnot, and the uplink side does not affect FAP allowance. You can stream up all day without impacting your daily usage. Which is kind of good, if you do have to rely on uploading throughout your activities online. Most recent speed test results: :::..

  15. It's a 2 year commitment. Contract's suck, we all know that. But not bad if Hughes is your only broadband provider. I do not have to worry about finishing out a contract if landbased broadband makes it to where I live, because it will never happen. So the commitment is not a problem, the 2 years I'm in a contract, is 2 years that I have some leverage (others may see it the other way), but I have used the contract's stipulations several times to gain advantages (such as an installation repair that went sour). People also must keep in mind that Hughes has a prime directive. PROTECT GUARANTEED BANDWIDTH AT ALL COST They provide connectivity for a lot more than some people know about. A major service they provide to gov. and business contracts is guaranteed bandwidth. Some people dont realize (with the correct hardware) the satellite link can do 30Mbits down and 16Mbits up. Guaranteed bandwidth is expensive, and must be protected at all costs. They also advertise the ability to link several spot beams in order to move up to 440Mbits, allowing major networks the ability to move a whole lot of data over the space link very quickly. This bandwidth is protected, and measures are built in to guarantee the availability of bandwidth to enterprise customers who pay for it. Keep in mind, the consumer side is the 'bottom feeders'... they just sell leftover bandwidth to the consumer (and dont guarantee it). People think 100 bucks a month is steep, those bus. and gov. contracts are of the highest importance to Hughes, as well should be. And to prove consistency, and show off another sweet test result: Your connection is: 9043 Kbps or 9 Mbps You downloaded at: 1104 kB/s or 1.1 MB/s You are running: 158 times faster than 56K and can download 1 megabyte in 0.93 second(s) Member Ident:Username:jdirty CompID:896143566650 Test Time:: 2010-11-07 09:20:27 GMT -7 Test Browser and OS info: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.2.12) Gecko/20101026 Firefox/3.6.12 Test ID: YX1DH5T6B (if this is a screenshot go to testmy.net to see if this is fake) Diagnosis ^info^: Seriously? Are you kidding me?: You are running at 838% of your hosts average (Direcpc.com) Yes, I know it's only a 6MB file, but as stated in a previous post, most of my downloads are around that size, so that is an accurate display of performance.
