Usually these sites simply calculate the satellite placement. It is not real-time satellite tracking.
I expect to hear an announcement that SES-3 has arrived in the 103w position.Satellite AV, LLC (Gold Sponsor)

It's at 105.6W right now, according to the n2yo site. I checked the kep that site is using and it matches the most current on the Space Track site.
I'm not disputing what you say Brian, but I was under the impression that Stratcom derived their keps from actual tracking data. Do you have any idea?

The live real time satellite tracking website may say that it's at 105.6W right now, but by looking at the other estimated numbers... it has been slowing down a lot and it has descended to the proper altitude that all other satellites are located at. Perhaps it's making the final adjustments.
