I often see that people say your ping should be in the 700 range. Mine is never that low, usually 850-1000. Why is that, and should it matter?Upload and download speeds are fine,

Hi Gus,

***Correction** Your ping rate is your distance from the satellite.  The higher your ping, the further away you are from the satellite.  If you have any other questions or concerns, and would like to speak with my Technical Team, please send me an email to exedelistens@viasat.com with your account and contact information.

Under 1000 is considered "acceptable." You shouldn't notice unless you are gaming or use VOIP.
