Jul 7th, 2011 2:18 AM #26I wish you guys would actually pay attention to the content you post. It's absurd that you stray so far from the topic and then call people Nazis for telling you to stay on topic.
edit: In all seriousness you might have OCD and may need some sort of help getting it under control.

There is one interesting thing in this and that is a comparison between the different providers. Some companies are better than others.Blessings in the name of my Lord Jesus Christ who came in the flesh and now sits at the right hand of our God on high.

The unfortunate people just about 40 miles south of us are on leased phone lines, and leased internet . The phone lines are on pretty archaic equipment and on the best day are not better than most VOIP on their worst day. The internet is "Wireless" and is basically a central hub and a series of repeaters throughout the town that is leased by a retired electrical engineer and sold to the people in town. Fortunately Hughes has become available and people are starting to wise up and move over. Being a very small town some people won't move over because they don't want to put Ol' Brett out of business. Ol' Brett is making about 3500 a month after paying his provider and the cost of equipment he gives to his customers. Poor Ol' Brett.Mr. T made his van go twice the speed of light because he wanted to prove that quantum physics was a bunch of jibba jabba.

eww hughs net.
They suck balls.
Before getting huges net we specifically asked if they had caps... we were told no... we asked the installer..he said no... we got online...for about 20 minutes...thats how long it took us to meet our cap and get throttled.
FUCK HUGHS NET!
And often hughs net takes advantage of rural communities working with the local phone companys to keep the infrastructure from being upgraded. We tried going to ATT, cricket, sprint, everyone... we got the same thing every time... local law prevents us from providing service.
Yet If I had used cricket in Texas and brought it with us to MO that would of been ok ...\

Again, this thread isn't about YOUR bandwidth, or Anarch's, or even mine. It's about providers and how they bait and switch customers.
The copper wire, as long as it is not corroded, is intrinsically optimized to handle whatever form of communication at its optimal speed. Based on copper's limitations, that is. It's the nodes, the box, panels, whatever between each line and reaching to the server that may need upgrading.

The top HughsNet residential service package offers 2.0 Mbps downstream and 300 Kbps upstream at $89.99 per month. For a moment we'll ignore the fact this bandwidth is wireless and all the other factors involved with up/down streams, and we'll break down the meaning of each.
- HughsNet: 2.0 Mbps downstream = 256 kilobytes download maximum per second at $90/month.
- My Crap: 5.0 Mbps downstream = 640 kilobytes download maximum per second at $30/month.
- Vuall: 20 Mbps downstream = 2.5 megabytes/2560 kilobytes download maximum per second at roughly $10/month.
But wait...there's more.
About their bandwidth, HughsNet's top residential package at 2.0 Mbps down and 300 Kbps up at an excruciating $90/month is still stunted by their bandwidth limitation per account. So even after paying a ridiculous monthly fee for a decade-old downstream, you get a 400MB cap per day! This means you can only download and/or upload 400 megabytes in a 24-hour period. Your service won't be shut off if you exceed, instead you'll get throttled - meaning your download speeds will probably slow to meet dial-up - and you will be charged tons of money per megabyte transferred within that period AFTER you've reached the 400MB mark.
400 megabyte cap per day, on top of your shitty bandwidth at $90/month!!! This means if you purchased a game off the STEAM network you would have to either download it over two days (while doing nothing else online) or pay a fee to HughsNet for going over your 400MB cap. The average PC game these days is roughly 1.2 gigabytes in size COMPRESSED.
Not only does HughsNet charge an absurdly high rate for its archaic streams, you have to pay equipment and installation fees. Right now they claim standard installation is free, but they don't tell you that the equipment may cost you $600.
When it comes to internet, HughsNet is the Devil.

you do know hughs net is satellite internet right.
as in Not cell based....you knew that right?
also laz, your speed was
1.86 mbs download and 0.25 upload with a 26 ms ping.
Suddenlink does you dirty. Switch to a better provider.Jim Crow America relegated Blacks to the back of buses. Israel wants Arabs excluded from the bus entirely.
Jul 7th, 2011 6:51 PM #34I originally posted mine because it was requested, but I deleted it
(and my original post was left intact) while still staying on topic.
I don't have that card, so go fish. ;)
Off topic: are you a control freak in real life?
edit: laz, why did you edit your post in such a way that it does not mention that you changed it? Rewriting history again?I aggressively attack stupidity... If you feel I am being aggressive, well....

No, but seriously, my provider offers shitty streams and I know it. I unfortunately don't live in an area wherein I have the luxury to pick and choose. I assure you what I have is better than what I had before. And at least I'm not selling my fingers or children for HughsNet and it's bullshit bandwidth.
