I have satellite internet at home and i only get 1600 down and 200 up. I live in the middle of nowhere and can only get that. My friend lives a ways down the road right where the cable stops so he has that and gets 10,000 down and 1,500 up. They wont run the cable another mile. :icon_cry:
Ha! Don't feel bad! This is my SpeedTest of our "high speed" satellite internet out here in the sticks! :( Man, I wish I lived near the city again with high speed cable internet. This satellite crap is nothing more than DSL!
Yeah well the speeds i posted are on a good day. Nice clear sky. One day though it was clear out and my internet was down. Called them and found out that there was a huge storm over texas and it was knocking out one of there main satillites. I use Wildblue.

Sounds almost exactly like us. If we go down about 2-3 mile, they have cable. They say we won't get it because there aren't enough homes on our road! Again, they're full of it as there are enough people interested. We have even petitioned for it and sent out flyers on a regular basis. Satellite might be better than a modem, but it better be clear skies or you might as well not even have internet!
work connection sucks... my home one isnt much better... damn desert
this would be my home connection...I miss germany... 12mbps DSL for 30 bucks...
lol... now this is amazing... it says for the second test it says im around 100 miles away from el paso while the college is only around 50... thats great and all, but I only live 2 miles away from campus...
and how come I got over 4mb for downloadwhen all I have is a crappy 3mb cable line (the fastest line available in this hole)... something is off
