My speeds have slowed considerably since the hurricane Michael storm event this week. Any thoughts or information on this ?
Where are you located? As I recall from an earlier conversation, you are on Viasat-1 and all Viasat-1 gateways are west of the Mississippi at last check. I'm in Virginia and did notice some signal degradation as Michael made it's dash inland and across the southeast as well as slower than normal "speeds" but not by much. All of my traffic is flowing through the Lovelock, NV gateway then SLC but my path to Viasat-1 would have been passing through Michael as it rambled up the east coast. Today, signal was back to normal as it moved out to sea.
I have ViaSat's direct competition, and my speed plummeted to less than 2% of normal on Wednesday evening. It had been many months since my speed had dropped to anywhere near that level. It's fine, today. It was very likely due to the ground based network on the east coast being affected by Michael. My gateway is in Oregon, but service can still be affected by a ground based network disruption on the other side of the country.
