    Hughesnet

    Hughes is no longer supporting installation/reactivation of HN7XXX systems in the US. Haven't for a few years now. Where is this HN7700 physically located? Inside the US, or outside? //greg//

    Pros & Cons: Exede Satellite Internet versus Verizon HomeFusion Broadband 4G LTE Internet

    Not sure how that rumor started, I feel I get what I pay for. But 10GB doesn't go far these days. Pretty sure they count both what I send and what I receive against my monthly allowance tho. But I have experienced long lag times between when I consume the data - and when the usage actually shows...

    Pros & Cons: Exede Satellite Internet versus Verizon HomeFusion Broadband 4G LTE Internet

    Can't speak for Exede, but I was a HughesNet customer for 12 excruciating years. That said, the only alternative then was dialup. But as soon as Home Fusion hit the towers around me, I dropped satellite like a hot potato. I'm on the $60/mo plan (10GB) which is $20 cheaper than I was paying for...

    I don't see a problem. Or am I missing how you (or Mr Wales) correlate(s) "irrelevant or outdated" with "censorship"? //greg//

    Splitting Cable Internet

    Well, there is with analog. Out here in the boonies we haven't seen digital cable service from Time-Warner yet. So since there was no mention of whether this Cox connection was analog or digital, I mentioned "TV audio". //greg//

    Splitting Cable Internet

    No reason to doubt the man, if that's what's actually happening. This cable service you're describing carries a minimum of three signals; TV video, TV audio, modem. In many cases the cable company provides the filter box to split the signals for routing to the appropriate device; Cable in/TV...

    Splitting Cable Internet

    Interesting device, but was this Cox subscriber splitting the TV signal or the Internet signal. I don't see any indication that the RS device does anything but pass on the composite signal. That's ok if his TVs filter out the Internet frequency, or the Internet modem filters out the TV...

    excede installation certification

    I'd say you need both recertification and hands-on. You were originally certified under Wildblue tenure. WB is now owned by ViaSat, hence the new name (Exede). New name, new hardware, new procedures. Click here to get started. //greg//

    Sony 800 number guy recommends DSL over Cable internet?

    Just depends upon how many subscribers are on your cable tributary. In rural areas, cable internet branches out from a common feed to serve side roads, housing developments, etc. If the tributary is long enough, there's a repeater at the branch. It's from that point that an increasing number of...

    Sony 800 number guy recommends DSL over Cable internet?

    My bad. Would have been more clear if I'd have typed "Had the OP had mentioned DSLAM"...//greg//

    Sony 800 number guy recommends DSL over Cable internet?

    No problem. Had you specified DSLAM even once in this thread, you could have us all a lot of typing. Nonetheless, the suggestion to test drive cable for an overlap month stands. //greg//

    Sony 800 number guy recommends DSL over Cable internet?

    Assuming your DSL is traveling via copper wire, the speed will vary relative to the length of the wire it travels. Those closest to the central office will get the fastest speed, those at the end of the line will get the slowest. But because it's a dedicated line, at least you can pretty much...

    Satellite Inet or Wireless Broadband?

    First, there is no such thing as "4G/LTE over satellite". Not sure how you arrived at that conclusion. Second, reading this topic from the beginning would have answered every one of your questions. But to summarize; 1. no 2. I had a month to back out of the deal if I didn't like the service 3...

    Satellite Inet or Wireless Broadband?

    You state that you already have a Verizon 4G signal and a 5GB/month plan. I have Verizon also, and am using a contract iPhone. When I started the contract, only 3G or slower was ever displayed on the phone as the data connection. Then one day I started noticing 4G/LTE popping in and out. Within...

    Satellite Inet or Wireless Broadband?

    I'd stick with the 4G, better coverage will eventually make it your way. I say this because you can't get a satellite broadband connection without a service commitment. Lotsa folks have been financially disappointed when they realize that terrestrial broadband moved into their area while they...

    Satellite Inet or Wireless Broadband?

    Oh, and just so I didn't mislead you, the 5Mbps and 12Mbps are download speeds only. The uploads are much slower, advertised at up to 3Mbps. But it's the "up to" part that covers their butt. Most folks complain of uploads of less than 1/3 that, especially during peak usage hours. Remember, this...

    Satellite Inet or Wireless Broadband?

    Nope. Not saying that at all. Again, older Ku-band service had a daily limit. I only expressed the daily limit times 30 days to give you an idea of how they compared to the monthly limits of the current generation. If you get the 10GB plan - and use it all in one day watching a couple full...

    Satellite Inet or Wireless Broadband?

    425/day was my the limit on older Ku-band older account On average, that's <13GB/month. That was the most expensive plan. I think the cheapest was 325/day. The newer Ka-band accounts switched to a monthly allowance vice daily, yet are no more generous with the data allowance; 10G/mo basic plans...

    Dish Net services.

    Ok, guess I got distracted. Dish Internet, not Dish HDTV. So yeah, ViaSat1 is in fact at 115.1 and it carries Exede brand satellite internet. As I explained, Dish is a reseller of Exede service //greg//
