I tried this and although at one point there was a tiny drop down I'd say my service was pretty spot on. Going to bookmark this site for future reference. Overall my service is what I expected from satellite and we are pretty satisfied. In the past I have some real frustrations with internet service so I can understand why people become upset when they have problems. Over the years I've tried every option open to me (not too many and terrible). I had a few problems early on with this service but with some adjustments on my end things are better. I have only run out of data a couple of times and with help have been able to track those problems down. And no, I am not an employee and no I don't have any motive in posting this just thought those who feel they are being slowed down on certain sites might find the tool useful.

Very interesting links!  Thanks for sharing.  Mine was also pretty spot on, even with me currently being on the Liberty Pass right now.

The site refused to load but tehs told me there are too many customers and they still kept on selling. It made no difference what I paid!

I just tried that site again and this time consisitency was poor.  Wondered about how was doing because on one social site belong to can't download part of background pages. I use to be able to download everything on that site.
