Slow speed and Latency

I think I have everything per instructions, my OS is Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. What ever you need I'll get. This is the Download test at 25mb everything with the laptop identifier is no WIFI; The latency seems to be all over the scale but the last bunch I ran were all between 20-45%, but I have seen it as high as 97%. Thanks Larry

Interesting... Your gateway's provider is Suddenlink (, which appears to be randomly inserting a 1 second delay... which is not really terrible.


What troubles me is when you open up the wait time to 15 seconds, you have a consistent 10 second delay added between your terminal the satellite, which might indicate some kind of handshaking protocol issue. It's always the second number, not the initial one though... and that's weird.


Are you on Linux natively or running through a VM?
