Could Slow speeds be due to Satellite interference

Recommended Posts

I have both a Wild Blue and two Direct TV Satellites mounted on my roof.  Two of the sats are within 4 feet of each other. I subscribe to the WB Pro pack......... UNFORTUNATELY, I am unable to maintain any consistent upload speeds. In addition my uploads average in the 30-70 kbps range with an occasional (RARE) up-to 200 kbps.  ..............BEAM 26 WINNEPEG, NO noticeable difference with or without router.

..............The WB installer swapped out all hardware and there is an unobstructed view of the southern sky. My computer is an iMAC with the most recent operating system (10.4.6). The installer used his PC and his speed test were SLOWER than mine. I bought NEW phones (5.8) to eliminate any possible 2.4 interference problem.  The satellite is grounded well and all cables are spec.

PLEASE ADVISE

This is a typical problem. Upstream is a very precious to the ISP (WB). You what WB has done is tham old thing as DWay has done. They have over subscribed the bandwidth to a point that the upstream is not better than dialup.

You were drawn in by the cheap price. The reason it was so cheap is they have lost about $800 or more on installing your equipment. This kills the businsess model because it forces them to make up their dollars with over subscription. A crowded stream kills the upload!

As for as interference WB is KA band and your DSS is KU - that is not the issue. It's contention CRI Contention Rate Index.
