Newbie: Wild Blue, Os X

Recommended Posts

Newbie to testmy.net but four year veteran with Wild Blue. Turtle speeds, bad customer service, etc. reside in southeastern Michigan and using Apple OS X and Airport Extreme to serve a range of laptops and desktops in the home. Like many, have no real alternative so finally upgraded by package last year - moderate speed bump for a while, but now it's barely any better than it was before the upgrade. any suggestions or resources you know of that would help bump speed in my situation will be really appreciated.

This is my current test result on a Sunday afternoon...this is the best it gets; if it was 10PM it could be half this.

If that was the best speeds they could get me, and its no better than on the lower package, I'd demand being put back on the lower package. I mean why pay for crap speeds any more than one has to. IMO of course. And welcome to the foum. :cool:
