16 Kbps to 50 Kbps Upload

16 Kbps to 50 Kbps upload speed currently in non-primetime; its best to do one task (URL, upload, etc) at a time. If "multi-tasking," more page errors will be seen.

Maybe Friday or next week a truck roll will come and replace TRIA. Diagnostic information suggests everything is OK.

Rx SNR: 11.4 dB
Tx RF Power: 34.5dBm

Tx RF Power will vary, with higher or lower readings. I wonder if they can see this upload issue on SVT or not? Or see if different Modulation/Coding is being used.

Download speed around 6 AM CST is still great, but upload is in the toliet

That low of upload could impact your TCP traffic.

When going to a site like Weather Underground, which has lots of page elements, one can observe in lower left corner many of the page elements being loaded, just like in dialup days.

I have no idea how Exede buffers a webpage, but an user with slow upload speeds has to be consuming lots of extra buffer time.

But, as can be seen in photo, everything is "good to go." My service tech took vacation time this week, but I will talk to him on Friday. I have this feeling he will look at my stats, and try to suggest to me "everything is good to go."

Photo is an early morning upload speed test result at bottom side. Win7 has a connection dialog, and during this long, very long, speedtest, this dialog popped-up out of nowhere.

Web pages with lots of page elements take a long time to load...a minute or two.

SB2 diagnostic info looks good to go...no signs of trouble here.

Doing a single task, like watching Youtube video is OK, just those page elements slow loading time way down.

Using User Agent Switcher 0.7.3 add-on for Firefox, and using iPhone mode. Web pages come up much quicker now on many sites...saves bandwidth also, but one may not see full edition of those web pages made for a lite version for mobile viewers.

Curious, around 11 PM CST, upload speed is upto 48 Kbps. Must be fewer users online, when compared to early AM result. Tx RF Power is on high side, but that might not represent actual radiated power.

48kbps is still pretty low.

Have you noticed any sizeable impact on TCP downloads like Linux ISOs?

Around 7:40 AM CST, I downloaded Linux Mint 14 "Nadia" - Cinnamon (64-bit) at average download speed of 1.3MB/s; but afterwards, I did several Testmys afterwards....something stinks here. I'll have to wait until primetime. I called service tech to cancel appointment.

Exede 5







Around 8:17 AM CST for download

I brought this topic up before-2012-11-24: »WB-1: 163 Riverside-Phoenix Network

And tonight primetime speed is 33 Kbps...not much for uploading, but you can surf internet.

My guess would point to mis-configured Cisco Traffic equipment.

Getting down to 4 Kbps, and then back up to 500 Kbps suggests my TRIA works. But, being on outer fringe of beam might mean I don't have enough punch, so not all uplink signal is getting to satellite.

ViaSat is petitioning FCC for some million 1.2m dishes...if approved, and if consumers can use them and get them at a reasonable retail price, I plan on getting one next year. Having 4 extra dBm might give me an extra 2 dBm from those at beam's center.

Oh, I forgot, school is out for the holidays....that might explain what's happening currently.

My Conclusion - Being installed on beam's fringe area, I may have around a 2 dB loss of uplink power when compared to those within boresight (or beam's central area). Since this dish is peaked, with good SNR, this may lockin my uplink Modulation/Coding.

If Modulation/Coding is based upon SNR, then I suspect ViaSat's equipment might be throttling via limited time slot for uplinking.

If Modulation/Coding is based upon SNR, its too bad user does not have a means (backdoor key or their equipment) to change Modulation/Coding if increased uplink speed would result in this situation.

As I understand, all users are given an uplink time slot, but without knowing the specifics of how they setup timing/coding aspects, I can't say what other option(s) might be possible. I assume my uplink signal does not have enough punch, but I don't know if packets are being resent, or they throttle time interval downward within this time slot when packets come up missing.

Again, I'm on beam's fringe area, its just the uplink speed being affected, and this is not an issue of beam overloading; I think its a uplink power issue, where I don't have enough output power to compete with those closer to beam's central area.
