Yes, and this is because of his paranoid ideation (and added lack of knowledge of the technology). He can't accept explanations that clash with his worldview.
Plus he hasn't figured out that the furthest a domestic telephone call can go is only about 3,000 miles on a trunked wire and is trying to compare that to 88,000 miles in space.
Now I'm really done with his ridiculous trolling.
Yes, you are paranoid. That's a perfectly good traceroute for satellite comms. There's not one hop in there that takes 2 minutes like you said. Plus, none of the timeouts have anything to do with HughesNet - at all.
But just because it took me to embarrass you into FINALLY giving a traceroute snapshot like I originally asked, I'm not going to tell you the reason why your latency is so bad, because your paranoid delusions wouldn't believe it anyway.
That's it I'm reporting this.
You go right ahead, play victim and report everybody. I really don't care.
This 5 page thread already shows you've been playing games from the get go. Just comes right back to you.
Read my post again. I'm talking about satellite communication. Read the link. Even if a wired call went started with POTS and then sent internationally via satellite there is no noticable latency.
The call is either landline or via a low earth orbit satellite.
Folks... I got better things to do today... Now I'm really out.
The timeouts may very well be due to Century Link, which has issues all over the place.
