I just noticed in my results its saying im bursting to 13Mpbs at times... I wonder if that is true or if the test is flawed in measuring the speed.

Speedtest.net stayed pretty steady at 4.5-4.7 Mbps

I vaguely recall that they once fixed our speed problem (shortly after we installed the Jupiter system) by putting us on a different "out route" on the gateway. I decided that meant they have multiple ports from the gateway to the Internet at large, and they moved us from a congested port to a less-congested port. (Why that routing isn't automatic is a mystery to me.)

I called in yesterday to ask for a static IP address (So I can use OpenDNS web filtering at my house to help restrict 'bad' sites my kids may visit). I see Hughesnet is offering static IP's to their customers, but Xplornet told me they are not at this time. However, the agent told me 4g Fixed wireless is now available in my area (Wimax I think - although I have been told they are testing LTE) so I have an installer coming out this week to do a conversion.

Interesting! Our contract term ended about a week ago. They've been advertising heavily in our area; I wonder if they've expanded fixed wireless to include our house. I'll have to call.

I finally called Xplornet, and it looks like their 4g fixed wireless may finally reach my house, too. So I've scheduled an install. I'll follow up in the 4g wireless category when I have news.

I talked with the installer today. He told me they are deploying LTE in my area. He is comming out to do a site check next week, but said if Wimax signal is week he will come back and check LTE signal. He told me the Wimax reach is almost double of what the old system was, and LTE was is even a little better. It also does reasonable in NLOS situations. We shall see!

We finally got our site survey, and it looks like we're now in range of fixed wireless (again). So I need to schedule an install.

What's relevant for this thread is that I chatted with the installer. He also does satellite installs, which are still quite common in our area, and he said that lately they've gone back to using ViaSat for new installs, because the Ontario dealers have oversold the Echostar 17 capacity.

Just FYI.

Well we finally moved back into a town. We got Bell Aliant Fibre Op installed today - 80/30 internet, decent amount of TV and home phone for 119.99 - within 30 dollars of what I was paying for 5/1 service from Xplornet. Speeds are excellent - right now I am on my laptop and cannot hit the ceiling -

On our desktop that is wired into the router, we hit the full 80/30 speeds even during peak hours.

Thank you Xplornet, I wish you could of been much better.
