Latency Or Satellite Shortcomings?

Re: Additional info about latency

Why do my long distance calls and other communication type satellites not suffer from high latency rates?

Re: Additional info about latency

I'm sure @MarkJFine can provide a suitable explanation. But you should take your posting to the General Discussion section, because this section is for Tech Support, and you're not requesting any tech support. 

 

Maybe the mods can move the conversation to General Discussion.

Re: Additional info about latency

I provided a truthful explanation of why there is a base latency and provided a means to determine where the problem is.

The OP decided not to comply and gave a fairly paranoid and accusatory reason why.

 

So respectfully, I'm deciding from entertaining this circular conversation any longer before someone gets angry.

@Cblucas3 

 

Nearly any communication that doesn't experience a delay is over land based cable systems, not satellite.  Though I can't say with 100% certainty, I'm fairly certain that nearly all continental long distance calls use ground based infrastructure, never touching a satellite, and most of those that go overseas do the same.  

 

Any communications over geostationary satellites will always experience some delay, and some more than others, as they have to bounce off more than one satellite.  There are methods in place that try to disguise it or mitigate it, but it's always there.

Sounds good to me.

Re: Additional info about latency

I think it's likely the OP is married to his erroneous ideas, and no amount of logical, coherent explanation is going to change his paranoid ideation.   Thanks for the explanation, though, @GabeU ; it helps me learn a bit. Smiley Happy

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.

Re: Additional info about latency

Paranoid huh? Take a look at the timeouts. This is the problem I have. Not every page does this. It will go fair for several pages and just stall. Time outs or other messages like Not Connected To The Internet.Latency.JPG

"Paranoid huh? "

 

Yes.
