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!

Re: What is your speed, service price, and locatio

Hi! Very interested in this service... The service I have right now doesn't work half the time, and sometimes it runs at speeds below dial-up.

When you say it varies wildly throughout the day... How much does it vary? Could you give me a good range of speeds associated with time frames. Thanks!

thebluezone.com, WISP service. I live in Syracuse, Utah.

1Meg/1Meg $29.95 They have service as low as $15.95 for 256k/256k. $19.95 for 512k/512k.

Been with them since their beginning. They have made great strides and I now get great service. I purchased equipment for $150. Now they charge $150 for equipment, $25 activation, $50 install. Or, you can rent the equipment for $4/mo.(still have to pay the activation and install).

This is one of the first WISPs here in Malawi. As you can see, it is quite expensive. 32kbps is the lowest speed and the higher speeds can range up to US$10,000 per month.

I believe you are confusing speed with bandwidth...

"The system has been designed for maximum performance and reliability and offers speeds of up to 3Mbps up to a range of 50km."

The 32 Kbps is the "chunks" of bandwidth that the company offers...

Read their advertisement more carefully.

"Read their advertisements more carefully?" Heck, I'm using it. The fastest speed at which we can download/upload is around 32kbps.

For that price and the actual speeds you state you are getting, aren't there any dialup solutions on the island? Since it seems with dialup speeds and that price, you are getting screwed!

Re: What is your speed, service price, and locatio

Hey i'm new... beta testing a WISP in the caribbean , much better than most of the wired ones .
ISP name : green dot

Speed : 256k/96k ( but fluctuates , when they feel like i can get 512k- 1mbit , or 128k , testing after all )

Rate : 400 TT (trinidadian dollars )
about 64 US , considering dial up is 56 US here thats DAMNED good .
Service : pretty poor compared to 1st world country ISP's, but good for a 3rd world country , one ISP , also the phone company etc. TSTT has the monopoly and chokes all others , they hog the only suboceanic optic fibre line that runs straight to florida , so either other ISP's pay about
600 US a month for 1.5mbit T1 or use satellite backbones ,
most use the satellite backbone including mine , so online gaming is impossible !
They use moterolla canopy to provide service .

Re: My speed, service price, and location

Dialup is also expensive. There is a charge of about US$30 per month, plus you have to pay for the phone connection per minute. And in some places, like where I live, it took four years to get a landline, and then it does not even work most of the time for voice conversations and it is even worse for data, cutting out every couple minutes. This is one of those things that comes with living in a real 3rd world country. First of all, there is practically no competition. Second, the government doesn't help at all and puts huge taxes on almost everything.

Speed: 1.8Mb/1.2Mb (Varies a lot)
Price: $49.99
Location: lpbroadband/Loveland, Colorado

I just moved from Ohio to Colorado (this week), the installer showed up on time and was finished in an hour. I had been sweating getting broadband and this is a great solution for rural Colorado.

My oldest son is complaining about being the "slowest" connection on XBox Live, but in Ohio, we had 5Mb/512kb service via TWC/RR.

I have had no trouble using VPN to connect to work and response time for telnet sessions via VPN are very good. I have also used a VoIP softphone via the VPN connection with good results.

All in all, I am pleased.
