"I made this for AT&T Bell Labs in the early 1990s. It is pre World
Wide Web but very forward thinking. Unfortunately, AT&T never actually
offer this to the public as things were moving too quickly when they,
and most technology leaders, realized that the Internet and the World
Wide Web will going to change everything. But it is interesting to see
what their technology folks were thinking at that time."

Most interesting...IP traced from a mid-west location went thru Chicago, and all but one gateway is located west of my location.  Which modem do you have?

Cindy...your Chrome version is 70....and today's updated version is 72...newest version has video decode, and is a nice feature to have in your Win10.  Chrome 70 was released last October.

Here's a snip of the tracert I did on your dynamic IP (which is not seen)

 12   100 ms    54 ms    50 ms  0.ae1.BR3.CHI13.ALTER.NET
 13   101 ms    50 ms    55 ms  lag-37.ear3.Chicago2.Level3.net

It clearly indicates passing to Chicago...and this trace goes thru Kansas City...

Viasat could have rerouted one of their Gateways to Chicago, at a later time.  By chance, do you live in KS, OK, TX, or AK?

I did a little test.. I had my tv hooked to my internet, did a speed test, slow not bad but slower, disconnected tv from my internet and wow the speed went up. Guess that makes a huge difference in my speeds I get!!!! Just thought I'd throw that out there.

What plan are you on and how much priority data have you used for your current billing cycle?

I'm on the silver unlimited and I hardly ever use 40. But I'm not changing anytime soon!

Cindy...I have Exede 5-10 plan...10GB data bucket, then 128kbps throttled.  I have no bones to pick with Viasat, service works fine.  But forum speak suggests those on VS-1 with 150GB plans have been throttled down.

If VS works on your plan...then yes, no need to switch plan. Doing a tracert on your IP suggests a gateway past Chicago...which VS-1 does not have any Gateways in that direction, except in Canada....Winnipeg.  So, off hand, I suspect you live in OH, PA, WV, or in NY, if you are on VS-1 satellite.

Maybe Winnipeg's server did not get this traffic program update...with those states, the CAF-II pilgrims would not be coming onboard.

@Sweet Angelwings

Click on those three vertical dots at top, then open up help, and click on about

Note - Viasat browser does not update like Chrome...Viasat's browser is 32bit on my 64bit OS, but Chrome is 64bit

Note II - Google is urging Chrome users to update the web browser right away to
patch a zero-day vulnerability that is being actively exploited.

In a Tuesday tweet, Google Chrome Security and Desktop Engineering
Lead Justin Schuh said users should install the latest version of the
browser—72.0.3626.121—right away.
