Re: Exttremely slow web page load times

I will try to go back and locate the link.

I would have run 4MB, but the choices presented ran 3 MB, 6 MB.  no choice for 4.

The choice for 4 is located under "More sizes."  You just need to scroll down.

Re: Exttremely slow web page load times

This forum has failed to save my posts two times (for two test series).  I did not save them and they are lost.  Will run more and post.

Re: Exttremely slow web page load times

These results are slower than usual, especially the download.
Web page load times have been extremely slow with much faster
test results.  Do not believe it is down/up speed related.

Note that PC is on UTC, not Eastern Time

This is the URL you need to post:  https://testmy.net/quickstats/KZ4AK

 

It collects all the tests you run and provides the Hughesnet people with a whole bunch of data, so it is a lot more useful than providing URLs to individual tests.

Note that the sat signal strength is usually around 100 or more.
Currently raining and the strength is 75.

Will run more at a much later time - and post.

Re: Exttremely slow web page load times

OK, but again, the slow web page loads are not related to testmy.net speed results.   Web loads can be very slow even when speed test results are very high...

Re: Exttremely slow web page load times

Many web pages contain a ton of images, css, cookies, and javascript that must be loaded to make the site work. Embedded ads can require a whole litany of these by themselves. Each link to one of these takes a ping over the satellite. Each ping takes roughly a half-second to process. Depending upon the number of plugins, themes, and images a site has, page loads can take a lot longer than terrestrial internet (including phone)... sometimes in the minutes depending upon how the site expects them to be loaded. Engaging a tracking and ad blocker may help speed it up somewhat.

Re: Exttremely slow web page load times

I understand latency, image size, etc., but that does not explain the extended "waiting" times to access sites.  Latency can add a few 10s of seconds and image sizes can vary, but the time can vary from short to a very long time for the same web site.  Does not explain a large amount of buffering when downloading a small youtube video either.  I am running uBlock.   It does not matter that the tested download speed can be very fast.  Sounds more like gateway issues at HN.

Does it take 2 minutes for you to load myhughesnet.com????  

Thanks,

Re: Exttremely slow web page load times

Going to throw this out here for everyone to digest.

 

Below are my system beam/gateway numbers. Quite some time back an engineer (I'm assuming would take someone at that level) changed my Outroute ID to something like 35. My performance tanked hugely, something similar to what hamradio seems to be experiencing. Luckily I'm pretty obsessive about keeping the numbers written down about my configuration and saw the ID had been changed. I begged one of the mods here to please change it back and they did so within about 24-48 hours as I remember. Sure enough everything went back to normal.

 

Point I'm making is there are settings on HughesNet's end that may seem innocuous but can make a huge difference when it comes to performance. Not saying it is exactly what is happening here only that there are many variables in a complex system that can have considerable impact upon how the customer's site performs.
