This is the results of my ping test as performed by Ookla, the same people who run speedtest.net. Exede fails miserably as you can see from the numbers. Ping and jitter play an important part in how a connection performs. This is why it takes almost 5 minutes for a Facebook game to load and heaven forbid I try and play the game. I am sure some one will get up here and "educate" me on the subject and that's all well and good but it doesn't change the fact I can not use my internet for what I would like to use it for. If Exede is only good for email and a little web browsing, depending on the page, they should say so and their pricing reflect that.They, however, tell their customers that they can do anything and everything that like and the only obstacle is data caps. The numbers don't lie, the result before this on was an F+, not much of an improvement. So those of you who are getting 'great' speed and are wondering why it doesn't seem to make a difference, run the test. Pingtest.net.

Hmmm, well...... ping will always be high.....takes time going to space and back twice.

Taking 5 minutes to load FB, yea, thats a problem...should be more like 15-30 secs depending on pictures.

Exede and satellite internet in general is expensive. im sure they get a nice pay check ..but the inherent cost of keepibg the satellite in comussion and working, has to be significant.

I see your point friend, and as a installer, i hear the complaint every day.....
