I have had Dish satellite internet for almost two years. It has lived up to its speed claim, very close to 5 Mbps until the past month or so. Tonight I am only getting speeds of 1.3-1.5 Mbps. I went over all the possible things to try with the tech on the phone, including resetting the modem. That didn't fix anything. They sent a tech out. He was here at about 10:30 am to about 12 pm. He tweaked the dish a bit, but couldn't find anything wrong. (That's going to cost me at least $48 for 6 mos. of protection plan.) But before he did that, my speed was good that morning (of course, like when your car is making noise except when you bring it to the shop).
Pretty close to 10 Mbps (I upgraded a couple months ago). The speed was still good after he left. Yesterday, early in the morning, (7-8 am) I was able to watch video on Hulu. My data limits are nowhere near used up. I was told that the more people using the service, the slower it will be, but are there that many more people on in the afternoon and evening that it is going to slow me down that much? to ONE-TENTH of what I should be getting?
Ever since the upgrade the speed has been more inconsistent, but it has gotten absolutely ridiculous!
(Are we going to blame "net neutrality"?)
