localpeon Posted October 16, 2008 CID Report Share Posted October 16, 2008 Help. I am on Dish's Wildblue satellite. I took the lowest tier to see how it would work, since I am way out in the country. So the advertised download speed is 500K and the up is 128K. I have yet to get close to the download speed they are talking about. If I understand the Testmy net narrative after test is run, ( see below) I am getting a hand shake with wildblue at 507K and a download of data at 62K. I have had Dish Wildblue guy out three times and today they replaced the modem, the cable from modem to antenna and replaced the thing (sorry for this technical term) on the antenna. They have repeatably check the alignment on the antenna and it is as good as they can get it. I am on a PC with XP 2002 with service pack 3, 1G of RAM, 100 G HD, I just bought a new IMAC and have ran it on this same connection and get the same kind of speeds. Any suggestions?? local.peon (I am posting now but will be signing off for the nite and will check for responses later today.)
