I was thinking of switching to Wild Blue since I am moving from Tennessee to Alabama but so far.....the only advantage I see over my Direcway is the upload speeds. The basic package is only 49.95 now with free install (still got the 300 equip price tag). I pay 59.99 for D'way and by the looks of things to get faster downs with W B than I get with my d'way is to step up to the pro pack. That being 79.99 or twenty smackers more a month. I  realize the uploads are a hell of a lot faster with ANY WB plan but the twenty bucks for the same down speeds isn't making much sense. Can you guys (and gals if applicable) help sell me on the switch? I HAVE had my problems with d'way but am not sure if WB is any better yet. Just looking for input and thanks in advance.

I got Wildblue Tuesday (August 15) after 10 years with DirecPC, DirecWay, HughesNet and total frustration. The download speeds averaged 250-500kbps most of the time even though I was on the pro package. Uploads averaged in the high hundreds to 200kbps most of the time. I like to download so this really sucked. I turned them into the FCC, Attorney General and BBB for false advertising and their ads were slightly changed to refect a more correct statement about speeds. I was credited with 2 months free service but it has gone downhill since then. I can't understand the foreign tech staff either!! Anyway, the tech installed the system with no problems. We ran the download test and it topped at 1.5mbps. I was impressed. Then we ran the upload test and it was 145kbps. He told me it would probably take a while for the uploads to speed up. I thought "uhhuh..." He left and then I ran several more tests throughout the day. The uploads got slower and slower so I called tech support. The technician was really nice and spoke perfect English...a welcome relief. We ran many tests and the download and upload got slower and slower. The download speed was around 200kbps and the upload slowed to 39kbps. Sounded a LOT like Direcway. Then the tech told me to give it about 3 days and it didn't get any better, to call back and they would send someone out..."uhhuh..." Anyway, I ran the tests into the early evening and then things started speeding up. The uploads around 10pm were up to 200kbps which were acceptable. I ran the tests this morning and was quite happy with the results. I knew the real test would be when I got home this evening during prime time when direcway slows to a crawl. Here are the results:

Wow!!! 9915 kbps!!! That is faster than cable!  Obviously that is an error. For some reason testmy keeps giving me an outrageous download speed. With other tests, it runs right at 1500kbps.  The upload speed is quite acceptable for me. It has varried between 190-260kbps. If this range is maintained over the next month I will be happy. If it fluctuates as so many of you complain about, then I will probably go back to Direcway which I do not have any contract with. I don't want to get locked into a one year WildBlue plan if it is going to jump all over the place.

Since 11/17/06 the latency (ping time) has more than doubled on WildBlue thereby making "Satellite Broadband" an oxymoron!

Welcome to the forum Basil!  :smile2:

I've seen a lot of complaints from Wildblue users on the Dslreports.com's Wildblue forums so you're not alone.

You should run a speed test.. and post your results.
