What is your speed, service price, and location and ISP?

I didn't see one of these threads in the wireless forums.
I thought it would be interesting to share this information with other members.

I'll go first:

Speed: 768/256
Price: $49.99
Location: Comwavz/WatchTV in Northwest Ohio

Note: Excellent customer service! (I'm hoping for faster speeds in the future. )

[mod note - title changed to add ISP]

Re: What is your speed, service price, and location?

Speed: 1.1 mbps down
1.1 mbps up
varies wildly throughout the day!!!!

Price: $60/month
$45/month if paid yearly

Abilene, Texas

ISP is: Texas Communications (called Camalott Communications in some circles)

Bottom line: high cost, speed varies too much, there must be a better way!

Location:Hudson, Wisconsin
WISP: Nomad Wireless
Price: $69.95/Month, $200 for 1 year contract
Speed: advertised speed (up/down) 640/480; actual speeds are 500/400 give or take

This is really the only game in town for my area. There's another WISP (Stonebridge Wireless), but they claim that their equipment is "WiMax Ready" and their service is "business focused" so their install charge is $800 and they require a 3 year committment. And they charge $59/month for 1mb/1mb service and $99/month for 1544 Kbps/1544 Kbps service.

Seeing what others get for their money is nice. And disturbing to see how little I get for what I pay.

That's too bad. I have a friend on Metalink. She's paying for 1 Meg down and getting 1.8...sometimes 2.0+. I think she's off of the Hamler antenna.

-mizzer

BTW: this is a great thread!:D



thelinuxman

@metalink.net

I'm surprised I get what I get. I am in a hole, covered in trees. I am off the Bryan antenna. Had to put a 15ft pole on the roof, and get a special antenna. +13dbi instead of the +9 they usually use for 900mhz. I only got a signal at one point on the roof, if I move over a few feet, nothing at all. I think I may put up a tower eventually.
I am just so happy to get anything. I have had direcway the last two yrs.

Re: What is your speed, service price, and location?

Speed: 36/12 actual on average but it comes and goes along with packet loss.
Price: $45.00/Mo
Location: Signalpeak.net near Silver City, New Mexico

They said I probably wouldn't get signal because I'm NLOS at 4 miles from the closest repeater. I found signal with a 25' pole mounted to the side of the house. Old school equipment from them... WaveRider modem and aluminum 12 element yagie. I'm in the process of building a 50' tower to try for LOS or at least stronger signal. Any suggestions for locating a 75' cable so I don't have to house the modem outside?
There's no DSL, cable or even decent dial-up within 7 miles of my location and no plan to provide any to the population. I'd like to thank Qwest and Comcast for their lack of concern. Lack of demand in my area being the usual reply to my requests.
This wireless I'm now on smokes the dial-up which was 3.5/2. DirecWay didn't agree with Joint Ops or any VoIP programs and it's a pretty ridiculous install (They said they had to install it...) and monthly fee for the pathetic and nearly useless connection that you get. Sorry but not being able to game or talk online is not a viable option.
Sorry for the expanded version.

The actuals mentioned above is actual download and upload speeds, not "scores" from a speed test.

actual 700/60 per local Virizon DSL speedtest. $43/mo.

over four miles from tower through heavy spring foilage. Down from 1.3/400 in late winter.

I just keep using it, stay away from most speed tests.

Beats the Dway in every way.

Call me HAPPY!

Re: What is your speed, service price, and location?

If you don't mind my asking, what do you average in ping times to most of the larger servers/websites? IE: google/microsoft/yahoo/dslreports.. And game servers?

I sure hope my pings times are low or I will complain. :( Great something else for me to worry about until my service is installed in a couple days.

According to www.pcpitstop.com 's ping tests I am always in the green. My ping to the tower is usually 10 ms.

Except for the occasional high-congestion moments (lasts about 20 minutes) I have never had a problem with on-line gaming. In All-Seeing-Eye I usually have two or three pages of sub-100 pings for Battlefield 1942. Currently Guild Wars runs just fine, too.:D

Even so, when I had a problem the techs were on it, pronto. Great service!
