Network Management Policy...beam 31...Exede will be overstuffed and underserved too.
ViaSat's CEO has indicated Exede will not be overstuffed, as in intentional overstuffing. When the children are out of school, like at Christmas time, I would expect slow-downs once system is loaded.
WB-1: 163's pattern tends to reflect 6 PM to 10 PM high usage, but I can still accomplish what I want (mainly Youtubbing & Surfing).
I always assumed NMP will slow down downloading...so seeing a result of "347 kb/s while it is advertised as 512 kb/s" when downloading would not surprise me. But, I have not experienced on Exede slow downloads yet, but I do downloads during non primetime hours.
YMMV on Wildblue...but on Exede 5, I'm not having speed issues yet, except for slower uploads, which most all of the time, it don't matter since I am not a power up-loader..
