Ping statistics for 72.14.207.99:

    Packets: Sent = 99, Received = 98, Lost = 1 (1% loss),

Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:

    Minimum = 1126ms, Maximum = 2968ms, Average = 1369ms  :sad3:

Good news...latency has improved over the last week approximately 300ms and DL and UL performing at maximum speeds! Bad news...latency still sucks compared to the 700ms I expected when I purchased WB.

9:15pm EST on Thursday, 10/4/07.  Hmmmm the minimum has decreased but average is consistent with last reading.

Yes, but I was hoping for reasonable latency for satellite somewhere in the range of 600 -800 ms.  Gaining an extra half second from where I am now would be real nice!  I really feel the pain when dealing with IMAP and HTTPS.  But wow do my downloads fly compared to dial-up.

All in all...I would say I am extremely satisfied.  I am paying $79/month for the pro package but I get $10 knocked off for coupling my bill with Direct TV.  I was paying $20/mos for two dial-up connections along with $35/mos for callwave, a landline, and the call forward on busy feature.  Therefore, I am actually paying $14 extra per month to have excellent DL(30x faster)/UL(I think landline is faster than 56k), and the ability to connect throughout my home via a wireless router.

Latency speeds are normally high with any satelite. Yes it cost a lot of money to have the service. But for those who have to have it, If your not getting a good signal, have them come re-peak and point your antenna. Most time that's all you need done to have a stronger signal.

They have a thing now that if you pay 119.00 they will come out and check your service and replace anything that is not up to par for the next 90 days at no extra charge.

Not bad speeds for smartbro, but this thread is for wildblue users :smile2:

"P.S. I use relatively small files to mirror my real life usage."

Interesting...so a 100 kbps upload speed using a smaller file represents a realistic measure because it factors in the lag more appropriately???

I guess I like to see the larger file upload speed because it indicates to me that I am capable of reaching speeds that I am paying for.   Am I right in what I am thinking.

If you did not have Hughes for very long you would be still under warranty for things like that. That could be a bummer. So that is how WIld Blue does it then?

What's weird is how much faster my test is when I'm using AOL. they are both going through Wildblue, but I get about half the speed on Internet Explorer alone

Thats because AOL does not give real speeds. It is cached. Meaing like it is in the memory and just reloading the page. Instead of downloading for real.

That is why when you go to test it says turn off all accelerators before testing.

So you get the real speeds. Try AOL on a page you have never been to before. It will be slow again.  :wink:

I would never have AOL anything on my computer.  :idiot2:

here's what I get outside of AOL.  From what I'm understanding, I'm still slower than I should be, but it's faster that my son-in-law's who has HughesNet

I would be interested to see how others on WB1 Duluth beam (or anybody on WB1 at least) compare to this crap--at peak and off peak time.  I'm on the 'middle' of the 3 packages and these are the results I've been getting since I upgraded a few weeks back.

Note:  This test was done at 10:12PM local (EST) time.  The service used to be great when I first signed up for WB back in May '07.  I've watched it slowly go to hell.  By end of the year, if this projection doesn't change, I'll be doing the equivalent of dial-up.  Basically, I'll be paying $50/month to not use the phone line that we never use anyways.

Thanks for the suggestions, but I've done all that.  I tweaked the browser a while back and that did help somewhat.  The speed slow-down has to do with peak/off-peak times.  If I test at 8:00AM it's much faster--more like it should be.  It has nothing to do with weather because I am located right in the middle of the drought area (if you've seen on the news) and there have only been about 3 days in the past month when skies were something besides 'clear' as defined by the National Weather service...  and even then it was 'partly cloudy' or 'cloudy'.  The last time the weather was inclement was on 8/29--it was defined as 'thunderstorms' and my speed was measured at 262kbs down / 101kbs upload at 8:45PM (local time).  At that time, I was on the basic plan.

Now I'm beginning to wonder if my dish is out of alignment or something--that's why I was asking if anybody else on the same beam / satellite saw the same slow down in the evenings as much as I am.  But I doubt that because, if that were the case, I would have slow down at all times (not just in the evening).  Again, I appreciate the suggestions but I don't think there is anything else I can do software-wise.  The next thing would be to hack WB, I guess, to tweak my QOS.  :police:
