A short ode to Jupiter 2

Fly fast and fly soon. Please leave for orbit tomorrow at noon.

Fly safe and fly free. Please rain some primetime bandwidth on me.

Re: A short ode to Jupiter 2

I think HughesNet may be even more anxious to get the new bird up and running than some of the suffering customers. Friday is going to be a good day.

"I think HughesNet may be even more anxious to get the new bird up and running than some of the suffering customers."

From a business standpoint growth has to have been minimal at best. Stockholders don't like that.

From a customer standpoint the 5 Mbps plans offered by SP3 just don't get it along with 5 or 10 GB monthly limits.

J2 should offer a few years of relief. I'll bet J3 is in the planning stages already.

Re: A short ode to Jupiter 2

Better to find and fix problems now rather than a big bang on lift-off:


The EchoStar 19 spacecraft will be propelled into orbit atop a United Launch Alliance Atlas 5 rocket on Sunday, Dec. 18.

Liftoff from Cape Canaveral will be possible during a 120-minute window opening at 1:27 p.m. EST (1827 GMT).

Playalinda Beach just north of the launch pad will offer the best and closest viewing spot for the general public.

The mission was pushed back two days to replace a component and to retest the rocket after pre-flight checkouts turned up a part that was misbehaving.

Poor GW...

If I could, I would give you 50% of my bandwidth...
If you were on Beam 55/RAP, that would help as long as a half zillion other customers on this oversold beam centered on hillbilly nation participated in the plan.

It's all about traffic. If you hit it at the right instant, you get good performance. Hit it at the wrong time (nights and weekends) performance goes right down the tubes. I get results like yours when I test in the morning on weekdays.

Saturday and Sunday morning, not so much. 7-10 PM any night, forget about it.
