Re: Any known issue for Northern California today - 66K downloads under FAP

The thing with reduced speeds under the Fair Access Policy is that reduced speeds will be under 1Mbps, we don't have a range more specific than that. It's just generally less than 1 Mbps, and just like for a subscriber with monthly data left, speeds can vary by several Mbps due to all kinds of factors.

Understood but that is a shame.  This is the slowest I have ever experienced since being with Hughes starting back in early 2000s... getting any run with one device connected and wifi turned off and getting a 63k test is worse than 2g one can get on an old cell device.  So in a matter of a day it went from the normal 500k to 800K under FAP with wifi left on to 63k with one device connected and wifi off so non of my home is now served other than 1 computer and can't even get emails now, or sporatically.  My email all day as been timing out several times.

 

Not a happy customer but what can I do.  Tokens are not an option as even when I am not under FAP I have seldom achieved the speeds advertised or even a small subset of those speeds.  

 

May be time to go back to cell unfortunately as under 100k just does not cut it.  

 

Thanks for your time.
