Better test speeds

Have still been running test here and on testmy.net. Both test sites are fairly close in results, am only posting Hughes result, so far the past few days have seen tests closer to or exceeding what I should expect. Posting these as My data for this period are about gone so won't help to test until new allowance. Hope others are seeing better speeds.

Re: Better test speeds

Though my overall speeds were never quite as low as some, I'm seeing an improvement, as well.  Smiley Happy

Re: Better test speeds

@GabeU sorry I missed your reply back in early Feb, hope your speeds are still doing better. Mine have stayed consistantly good, and I am still checking speeds often enough to believe the problems I had last fall/early winter are "fixed". Ping time is way slow, but seems to be the nature of the satellite system. Good luck.

Re: Better test speeds

Yep, mine are still pretty good.   A little slow sometimes in the evenings, but nothing like before.  Sometimes it gets down to low teens or so, but that's not that big of a deal and is still enough to do what I need to do, and being that low doesn't last very long, thankfully.  And they're fantastic in the off peak time periods, getting back up in to the 40s.  Smiley Happy   

 

Are your ping times more than 700ms or so?

Re: Better test speeds

@GabeU,@Amanda, Gabe ping times are still way too long last checked 1.9 and 2.0 sec. Slow enough that even this site shows response took too long, generally refresh page gets it done. Speed has still been great.

That's not good.  To be honest, I don't know what really causes something like that, nor what can cause it to become so extreme that it causes pages to time out.  Maybe someone who has a better idea about how the system works will have an idea of what could be causing it and will chime in on what to try, or what needs to be done to alleviate it.
