Thursday night at 9:30pm and I am pulling the above speed. I don't know what they have done, but it isn't working.

Pretty ridiculous.

For the record, I have used 2.5GB of data for my billing cycle.

Yea.

That would be 300kbps, not 30. 30 would be dial-up speeds :).

That would be dial up speed. That is more ridiculous!

What is your general location? Curious what beam you are on?

Me thinks whatever they are doing to improve the network for all isnt working!

Most likely 334. Unless you are right across the border from Corinth, MS. Then you could be on 333.

I am getting .62 mbps and it error'd out on the upload speed test. For the past 5 days or so the speeds from early evening on have been horrendous. It definitely seems like something has changed.  My data usage 1/2 way through the month is 30GB of 150 GB freedom. Beam 329 (central VA)

He is on Viasat-2 Gwen. A mythical high density spot beam in fact. They do exist, but where is anybody's guess.

That speed is worse than mine.

It is TERRIBLE.

The problem is you will call support, they will run a few tests, say you have a problem and will get back with you. Chances are you will hear nothing back.

For speeds to be this bad in multiple locations, they have changed something, and it is not working as intended.

Denver, we have a problem!
