I had posted in the community that my download performance was slower than upload, and is that way regardless of time of day. Of course, this initiated a string of nastygrams that I wasn't playing by the rules. So here's my data: Echostar XVII, beam 14, gateway 2, outroute 16. Here are the results from the Hughes speedtest. The sudden drop in performance is clearly evident. My SamKnows dashboard shows identical performance, with the degradation starting November 28th, and remaining at a low level, frequently below 1Mbs. Nothing has changed at my site, the dish has not moved (signal level is the same as it has been for years) and there is no change on either of the other two dishes alongside the Hughes dish... one steerable, one for Dish TV.
