Just thought I'd let everyone know for who is on Beam 309 there is a Network Outage. No one has called in from the representative I talked to, to let them know about anything. Just thought I'd let everyone know.

Are you still using Viasat? I thought you were moving to wireless?

I don't know yet. I'm just getting bored of the internet in general. I'm legit bored out of my mind. This forum is kind of really boring. I mean I get that it's for Viasat customer for help and stuff. But, it just gets so boring day in and day out. Same thing with TV also. Watching the TV day in and day out. It just gets so boring.

I don't get how people can watch TV all day long and never get bored of it. Meh, I shouldn't say that about TV. That also goes the same for the internet. Social media gets so dang boring also. Video games get boring also. I legit need to do some stuff around my home anyways. So I'll use my boredom time and cook breakfast for my ma and maybe do a little bit of cleaning also. Ya know, Instead of complaining about being bored isn't going to do me any good at all. I'm going to do that. So good day to Y'all guys!

Well... If my speed's can go up a little bit more. Then I can watch Anime. But meh, Viasat doesn't want to give us some of the bandwidth to us residential customers. It's cool beans Viasat :3

I have been Viasat free for 3+ days.

Like I am going through a 12 step program!

My primetime wireless speeds. Not the best tonight, but I got 4 processes running!

VetSat, what device are you using for this testing? I have just purchased a 7730L, it is supposed to arrive today, so hopefully I can start my testing later today. I am hoping I don't need to get an external antenna, but that may be something I will have to do. Are you using an external antenna, and if so, what did you go with?

You can get a Yagi antenna off eBay or Amazon for under $100 if need be. Just search for 7730L external antenna and it will popup. If you get 3 or 4 bars on your device, I wouldn't get an antenna. My experience is the antenna will get you two bars extra.

Do you have the SIM card to insert in your 7730L?

Yes, the sim card for Verizon is included with the 7730L I purchased. I did find a Yagi on Amazon for $85 that includes the antenna jack pigtail for the 7730L.

@Steve....VZW only accepts unused SIMs...once used, its history.

Steve. Hit me up on DSL Reports if you got questions. I am easy to find (just old over there) and it is easier to communicate with instant messages.

Good luck!
