It took 15 minutes to download your home page. I am a communications engineer. So I know I don't need to unplug my modem etc. You guys make dial up look like the next big thing. as soon as ANYTHING else is available I'm gone.

Hey...  You're in luck on that change thing.  In about 24 days the ViaSat-2 satellite will be launched and then about July it will be operational.  You can change then.

Don't worry, be happy.

My favorite saying.. I'm a technician. I fix what the engineer couldn't.. Modem rebooting does a lot of things. One of them is. It re registers with the satellite. That alone can clear up some problems.

actually most of the time it does not fix the problems, it only mask and covers them up while clearing the logs of what the real issues are..

I always get a smile when they say they are a tech or they do this for a living.  It probably means they have no clue or they are so stubborn they won't take advice from anyone.

Actually I have been in the industry for over 30 years and have more credential than will fit on my business card and I own a IT company with over 70 techs and 20 million a year.  The problem is that I have a residence in an rural area and only have a dish as an option
