Slow speed, no congestion issue

On Friday night (Aug. 18) I noticed very slow speeds, and took a speed test, it was around 1M for both download and upload.  Since it was prime time, I thought it heavy use on the beam and ignored it.  Early this morning, on the free zone and with likely not much traffic, it was still 1/1M.  I rebooted the modem and it shot up to 44/4M.  For a few hours it was great and I even watched a HD movie with no latency issues.  Now this afternoon it's slowed back down to 1/1.  I really don't think it's a traffic issue.  I also rebooted my computer, and I took any other devices off line, no effect, still slow.  Could it be the modem going bad?

Bruce, it could be many things, the best thing to do is email your account and contact information as well as a link to this thread, or a description of your slow speed issue to exedelistens@viasat.com. They can take a look and see if anything looks off on their end, and advise you as to what might be done to improve your speeds.
