MY SPEEDTEST RESULT
2/22/2015 at 4:40 AM GMT
I am on beam 329 in VA and had really bad speeds last two nights as well. In fact during the LNFZ I rarely get more that 3.5 to 5.0 Mpbs Down and about 0.75 Upload. This lasts from about 12:00 AM to 2:00 AM and starts to improve. During the Metered hours I always get full speed, so I know that this must be all of the night owls out there doing things to congest the network.
That being said, last two nights were very different. I suspect it may have something to do with the weather, the cold, or perhaps they were just doing some sort of maintenance on the system. Things seem back to normal for me at the moment.
Hopefully spring will get here and everything will speed up.
Interestingly I just tested at 8:31 PM at both www.speedtest.net and www.testmy.net and am only getting around 5 Mbps download and between 0.25 and .50 Mbps upload right now. Not sure what is going on, but this is definitely not the norm for me. Now I am wondering if our area is significantly congested or if there is something else going on right now.
Now for what I am doing it is certainly adequate, but will keep an eye on it for the next few days and if it does not improve will open a case with Exceed.
Let me know what any of you find out as well. Interested to see what others are experiencing.
Obviously I did not convey the meaning in my post that I meant towards your situation as I certainly did not mean to further inflame things. As to being involved, for better or worse anyone who reads this forum is involved when people post here. I was certainly NOT trying to upset you, simply wanted to offer a different viewpoint about life being too short to be overly worked up concerning this issue and offering suggestions towards a solution.
This problem does and is and has happened to me. I do not get full speeds in the evenings just like many others, so I am in the same boat. At work I have a 150 Mbps Down / 30 Mbps Up connection that doesn't always get the full speed. These services are best effort and I believe Exede is making their best effort.
I work hard for my money too, but I also am a realist when it comes to this technology. I live where I do because I prefer the privacy it offers and I like the fact I can go walk around my acreage or on the 70 or so acres that are used for lumber behind me by just walking out my front door. The price I pay is a bit more expensive internet and data caps. It could be worse, I could still be paying $30.00 / month for two phone lines and $20.00 for AOL. I'll take Exede over that - congestion and all - any time :)
The internet to me is a utility for work and luxury for non-work. I understand if it is not the same for others. My apologies for offending, as none was intended.
I truly do hope you get your issues squared away.
See for your selves;http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/i/...
As I said earlier, when will they admit that they have over sold their system to the detriment of others...............again I do not need a service tech on Saturday my day off.
