What about a mid day test ? I mean, anytime during the day, thats when the major slow down happens, this from every customer of wildblue that has posted here, besides one....... or maybe two, and there's quite a few !

So how is it that if we look at all the speed tests you've done here at testmy.net, that there all before, and after peak useage times, what I mean is the times that people are actually awake to use there connections ?

From the speed test I have seem from WildBlue the only time the downloads are at advertised speeds is in the AM hours and the uploads are rarely ever at advertised speeds.......select pack is 1000/200, none of the upload test are at 200. Hughes very much does have issues....even when I have had speed issues with them its been during peak evening hours only. I almost switched to WB.... :icon_scratch:

Download is really not the problem, it's the decreasing upload. :-

You see it's not better in the AM.

@mudmanc4  all those tests go back to when I first got WildBlue in January.  I think I skipped a few months (wasn't logged in doing tests).  But they are scattered all during the day.

A few months ago I was considering switching to WB, they told me that at any given time uploads or downloads would always be at least 80% of package speeds.......I can see this is not the case at all. Here is a WB customer who is on the pro plan which should be getting 1500/256

80% of package speeds? not hardly,  :bs:

also according to the mods on WB all is fine and the ones not getting good speeds need a reinstall..... myself would be filing a complaint with the BBB and getting some free service.

pro plan.......http://www.testmy.net/tools/database/db_search.php?type=user&q=johnl

select plan........http://www.testmy.net/tools/database/db_search.php?type=user&q=micwa1

I'm not sure how you say downloads aren't really a problem, when some of the dwonload speeds are below 100k? Neither of the above WB users speed test show me advertised speeds during peak hours or advertised uploads at any given time. Myself will not sugar coat my service provider, when the performance is having issues I will post my exact experience. I pay the IP , not the other way around. They want good reviews then provide what I'm paying for.

From some basic testing I have done on a wireline connection, is that 100Kbps upload maximum is all you need to request webpages.  Unless of course those webpages have many links loading from various sites to render on the one page.

It also helps to fully control any uploading by the end users as well.

With downloading if you get below a certain speed like 200Kbps, then you have issues of slow page loads with missing parts that time out.

I'm not arguing what speed is needed to request web page.....have yet to see a WildBlue customer get advertised upload speed at any given time, not to even mention peak hour speed. Myself want what I pay for, would not be happy just because its enough speed to browse the web. Obviously there is a problem with the speeds on both of the mentioned accounts.

Steal from the uploads to speed up the downloads.  :evil6:

I don't see anything later in the morning than 10:35 AM and any earlier then  5:38 PM, that kinda leaves out the entire "peak usage " time.

 Point is, it's really false results, can't change that.

Seriously I don't think WB expected to reach such a huge milestone so quickly in 4 years.  I do believe the sats capacity has been reached.  Hoping that ViaSat-1 resolves it. 

It should be noted that I was on HN (I think West 89/87 or something) before SPACEWAY 3 and this was the same results, slower speeds during peak hours.  Apparently SW-3 solved that issue.  But I still don't like HN as a company. It's like they are trying to be a monopoly with satellite internet access.  :roll:

Also, it's worth noting that we are about to have bad weather and it's very, very, very, very, very cloudy.

http://www.accuweather.com/us/ms/seminary/39479/city-weather-forecast.asp?partner=accuweather&traveler=0&u=1

It seems my hughes Ka band speeds are not affected by clouds either......big rain coming here too, no speed change until signal drops into the 60's my peak signal is 180.  :idea:

Heavy rain in forecast next two days....will run test in rain, clouds, if the signal status is green, speeds will not be any different than if the sky was clear.

Honestly finding differences between ISP is one of the things we do here. And giving results between them is the fruits of the labor. Its so those who want to know which one might best service someone might make a more educated decision. Reviews sort of you miht say. So no offense should be taken.  :wink:

Not to really see who has the biggest dog.  :lol:

Thats cool, but this isn't an advertisement thread for where someone might work, where they only test through the morning, and afternoon hours that are considered to be off peak. Looking at the thread title makes one look deeper, as well as other claims (that I have investigated myself ) that have been brought to my attention by several other members as to the authenticity of a on biased opinion based on career / employment. Thats still out there, at least at this point.

Please also keep in mind this is an open free forum, where every user has the ability to post as they feel necessary, is whatever area they feel there voice could be heard about whatever they please. At least at this point.

It's really not that difficulty to find that I live in MS.

Yeah, pretty hard to work with a company based in CO.

Getting old. 

Yup, I'm really advertising WB by posting true speeds (speeds that way below the normal range).  Really bias there.  :roll:

Needless to say, I'm done here.

After being confrontational to everyone that tried talking to you in here , you say that ? hmm, nothing to it.

Considering after you got tired of beating back others opinions, you resorted to posting test after test off hours to prove what I never did see a point.

Don't go away mad, ........

Satelite has always sucked and been the only alternative to dial-up for years for many. But it does look like it may be turning for once. A good thing to see really.

For the longest time I thought it was gonna be BPL that replaced satelite.  [nerdly]

Yes, I had anticipated getting BPL this year......the power company still has not started installs. :shock:  Maybe sometime in the next 40yrs I will have an option of real broadband with unlimited usage? For now Hughes it is.

The problem with the WildBlue1 and the AnikF2, is that they never stood a chance, bandwidth wise, from the potential market of users.

Even with the Hughesnet Spaceway3, is that it has more capacity, but people are upgrading from the KU birds to get some higher speed or a bare minimum of a 'constant' higher speed. So that cuts back on 'new' users who may be jumping ship from WildBlue and going to a newer, less populated satellite.

Oh,well. Another two to three years until the third generation birds.
