I like it.  Thanks!

1,600 Down, 220 Up.

My DSL service from AT&T is throttled to be 1,500 down and 256 up, so that's what's driving my numbers...

Download speed seem about right but it gives upload speeds over 256kbps which is impossible for a HughesNet satellite connection on the consumer or pro plans.

You can't rely on a single test, run the same test 4 or 5 times and average the results.  And if the results of a test site seem to be out of line with your specified service, it's probably not reliable.  There are so many factors that affect the speed of an internet connection that getting any consistent, reliable, measurements is almost impossible.  And speed tests are not representative of typical user activity, like email and web browsing, so the numbers are of little practical value other than to see if you're getting something close to what you're paying for.  Close is within an order of magnitude :)

Those look more realistic.  testmy.net has proved over time to be a good measure of HughesNet speeds, but the new HughesNet test is also a big improvement over the previous version.  The RR test gave me upload speeds like 276kbps which is impossible on a 256k transponder shared with up to 100 others.

Wow, must be nice to own a Cray computer system, Tom.

  I'll stick with my $29.00/mth connection. I have more time than money   ;)

I started out with a 1200 baud modem.  Sold $900 worth of basement stuff (about 20 items) on Amazon.com auction on that link. 1980's.

   This is not meant to be a thread-drift..

LOL Carson, that's the speed of the network, not my PC. The latter runs on candlepower.

We are setting in Clear Lake State Park near Mason City Iowa and getting 135K down and 32K up on a Sprint air card.  The signal strength on our Sprint phone is just one bar.  Slightly better than nothing, I guess!
