Re: [WildBlue] after 6.5 years, FAPPED for the first time, and i Well, still slow, still can't get into my bank, and many other pages load wrong. Glad I got the bills set to autopay, because I can't get into at least one that I tried, yet anyway. Like I said, starting at around 6900 the morning of the 29th, allowing for 24 hours to have not been counted from the previous day, 140 (which, the meter was moving that day). What I used that day, 150. Not counting for what should have rolled off, still wouldn't have been over. I really wish they could tell me what it spiked to, but I guess, because I saw usage at a peak of 7050, and it was lower before and after that within about an hour both ways, and several other points in the day and night were lower. So I just didn't see what it supposedly did.
I pictured it being slow, but I never thought I would go over, so never looked into it. Flat out not functional on basic webpages, or taking a handful of refreshes to get it to come in, was not expected. Odd that some, like this, work ok.
Anyway, I could call in again, might. But in the meantime I ordered a Millenicom hotspot, so I don't care much. I could have gotten the 3G and a cradlepoint or similar setup, but I figured 4G will be here sometime. Hopefully it works a little. 0.5 meg at least part of the time and I'll be satisfied. Had they taken care of whatever it was on their own after I called in (and asked for the number of what it got to that they couldn't provide), I would have stuck with it a bit longer at least.
