I hope granpa is getting better uploads, but as his graph shows his average 200k up?

Been out of town since Sunday, just back for the night and off again. My uploading was acting weird the past day or so. I usually check with 1496 kB but when I clicked on it it wouldn't stop there but would just jump up to the next size and the next. Seems OK today and speed about normal for this time of day.

Man, that first one is really good.

Show me a screen shot of a decent size file download when the download is almost complete.....your saying it should be around 180kB/s on the transfer speed?

Why is it when you run another test immediately after the 1.5 connection the rest of the test will show around 1000 connection speed? in fact run 3 test one right after the other.......without rebooting, clearing the cache etc. The test will show again around 1000.

Myself don't care what you post or think your speeds are, but feel bad for a new Hughes customer thinking a home plan should be getting 1500 or better download speeds, when its simply not so.

My first speed test normally shows around 1200-1300 also....the following test will match a transfer speed I get on a actual file download, around 1000 or  maybe 132/kBs

None of the Hughes modems 6000 and above will get the 1500 on a home plan....sorry  :notworthy:

I wouldn't bother explaining that to him. He really loves his "burst", which he can do, but I just don't think he should be bragging about it. I'm kind of sick of his "500/50" gimmick he has going, it's already old and I read the forums about once every 3-5 days.

A burst really isn't your true speed, so why gloat about it?

You know beings it is christmas, I am going to ignore you right now birdfan. Hoping yours gets much much better.  :wink2:

Yes...your DW6000 home account does do well during off peak hours, but dips to 200 during daytime hours. Thats great if your using at 2am to get the max speed of 1000 or so. :icon_study:

Actually I do most of my time after the kids go to bed. So that is the most important time for me. I usually am spending my peak time hours with the kids making them important. Seems a much better way to spend those dead hours.

So in a way it works out fine for me. And much better than dial-up. At least till something better comes along.  :grin2:

I don't think there is a 500/50 plan, the home accounts are 700/128...but anyway do 3 speed test one immediately after another, this will show your true speeds....and also match very closely what your transfer speed is when downloading a file...?

This is Hughes we are dealing with...there are many who are running the new modem and paying for 1500 down, and not getting it. Do you honestly think a home account is getting 1500  :haha:

-- post what you want, but this is not helping others just getting the system thinking these different tweaks will get you 1500 or more down with the home account. The member stats area show the other scores.  :shocked:

Take a look....almost postive my speed is not 1248, but pretty sure it is around 1080  :idea:

This is the kind of service i have been getting from Hughes, Installer will come tomorrow and see what he can do for me, It has been this way for 9 months off and on.

Uploads have been 6 to 21 kbs for the past week.

I have only seen 1 upload test over 100 kbs since i sighed up with hughes slowband.

Going back to dialup if things do not improve tomorrow, My commitment is up.

Fikester,

The modems may change, but the service plans for each specific modem to not.  Both residential plans for the DW6000 were, and still are 500/50 plans.  Now, I always saw 1Mbps, but my plan was still 500/50.  But that was back when Hughes was more honest about what they could offer.

Its no different than not being able to get the ProPlus plan for a DW7000, because that service plan does NOT match the DW7000, only the HN7000s. 

Also, the problem with Testmy's first test always being faster than retesting is a problem with Testmy, it's been happening since the facelift earlier this year....so in other words, I agree with you about the testing, just not for the same reason, it's not a speed burst.

Actually fikester I thought it was 700/128, until ghostmaster said it was the other way around. 1030 is my actual D/L speed, or 135. Other than that, my U/L is never the same. It always varies. Bird fan started a lot of crap about a year ago, so with many senior members on here I finally got it worked out to the speeds I just said[1030/?].

Although it did burst considerably for a while at  the first of this year, and they still burst some in the early morning. Which D/L speeds did agree with on short D/L's under 3 megs.

I guess it actually sounds like no one on hughes dway should be posting scores unless they can hit their real score. Which mine seldom does, and I would assume others seldom do either.  :roll: Like I said satelite sucks.

And all the testing again in the world will not change that.  :grin2:

I see ghostmaster was already here.

I just love it when the kids get to arguing. Who's got the fastest download, who's got the fastest upload, my system works well enough for me. I like to watch the fun though, just like watching my grandkids. To everyone, Happy Holidays. What speeds do you want for Christmas?

I truly love your insight grandpa. Winter boredom seems to do this.  :lol: About the same time as last year.

And yes HAPPY HOLIDAYS to all too.  :icon_santa:

You missed the entire point of the argument, good job.  :wink2:  :evil6:

To enlighten you, the argument is about what download test scores are "true" speeds and what are not.

None of us ever really know what are speed is, because it is CONSTANTLY changing with Hughes.  You can test 20 times in a row, and you might get a 200k difference between some of them. 

Not to mention, the fact that there are so many variables with Hughes.  All the different Sats, Xpondrs, gateways, and 2 different NOCs.  The only thing testing does, is give an accurate speed rating for users on the same gateway.  One persons experience with Hughes will most certainly be different than everyone elses.

So what the F*ck am I talking about?  The point is, if you want an accurate speed test with Hughes, just download part of a big file from MS or something because unless you are on the same gateway as someone else, argueing about speed bursts or true speeds is pointless.
