It's been one month now of erratic download speeds, how are the engineers coming with the anticipated fix?
Here's my experience today, it took quite a few minutes at 8:40 Pm Pst to be able to post this.
How's my fellow Beam 55 subscribers doing?
My experience is I have full speeds in the mornings (7Am) , then it degrades to very poor by 8 Pm or so. Some times a modem reboot helps , sometimes not, at best I get 3Mbs, a slight improvement.
I'm curious to know if Alan (El Dorado Sat.) has run sny speed tests later in the evening?
Speed was OK this morning... then afternoon hit my speeds started slowing down. By 6:30pm my download was down to 3Mbps and upload was about dead at 31K. I could not even run testmy tests during that time so did a real small one at got the 31K. 7 to 8 ish it about died. Could not browse web or do any tesetmy tests. Reboot modem... 1st attempt made no change and was still dirt slow.... reboot #2, speeds improved. About 9:41pm here and just ran a test after my 2 reboots. 29.7mbps down.
Like a tire with a slow leak.... starts full, then slowly loses air all day.... then a couple refills of air (reboot modem) and sometimes speeds are restored.
31Kbps for an upload speed? SMH. That's just plain awful. No other way to describe it. Awful. And sub 1Mbps download speeds are just as awful, but that 31Kbps upload speed really sticks out like a sore thumb.
Good morning folks,
Thank you for the feedback. I'll send this over to the engineers.
Your cooperation, patience, and understanding are much appreciated.
That's... an interesting thing to have happen. I wonder, can you note what your IPGW and Outroute ID is before, and after the reboot and post back, along with the relevent testmy.net results?
While in the System Control Center, click System Information at the top of the page. Your Outroute ID will be in the Satellite box.
