new 4620l hotspot customer, speed tests
I've been a Wildblue Value pack subscriber for 6.5 years. Exede5 upgrades are closed in this area, wasn't impressed with that system anyway after using it at neighbors. Initial test results below. I'm about 8 miles from the tower (direct line), through some dense trees. Best I saw was about two bars of 3G.
Initial impression, very impressed. It's like having DSL, with a cap, and more expensive.... If it keeps this up, may use my owned WB dish for target practice.... I'll see what it does tonight when I have time to use it. Wish I had more than 24 hours to evaluate.
Quick question, probably could look it up, and will. Do you leave the hotspot on in standby, charging, shut it off or? I may add a router for hardline connections in the future.
testmy I saw higher, but it is settling around this it seems.
