Hey, no problem. It takes a real and noble man to admit his faults. You are awesome. I wish there were more people in the world who are humble like you to admit their faults rather than to walk around with a chip on their shoulder. Way to go. I've just gain that much more respect for you.

All Satellite providers have to send info 22,500 miles up to the satellite then 22,500 miles back to your modem. The transmission can only go so fast so it results in high ping times. I've been reading a lot on Dslreports.com and most people seem to ping around 1,000-1,500ms on Satellite. I ping betwen 200-275ms on dial up. I'd like to know how satisfied you are with the satellite internet though? Many outages and do you get close to spec speeds? What package do you have. Run a speed test I'd like to see your satellite results. Here are my Dial up results. Ping is higher the further away I try a test. East coast only gaming for me. Otherwise I ping to high.



Great for downloading stuff but horrible for gaming and time sensitive things. I'm looking into Verizon wireless and Sprint Wireless right now. It appears Verizon is in my area with EvDO. But they have a 5GB/Month cap. Sprint is unlimited but looking at the coverage map it looks like its about 5-10 miles outside my area.

I've got to speak with someone there and see if I can use a Amp or repeater to boost the signal. Hard to say if I would even need to do that. May just need a antenna outside or something. Verizon gives me 30 days free trial got to see if sprint will as well. If so I think i'm going to get it and give it a go. If not i'm still tossing up 5GB/Month for basic DSL comparable wireless or go with WildBlue and have a higher monthly 17GB FAP. Hughes caps daily and that does me no good. I'd rather download more on my off days since I don't use it much when i'm working.
I have the sprint myself, and to tell you the truth. The pings are about the same as what you have there... Verizon will be exactly the same. The speeds are better though!! You should get teh sprint with an amplifier antenna, that shouuld help. Unless you arent covered at all. But you get 30 days to test it, so I would just do that.

Ya I'm going to do some calling at the start of the week. Is Sprint unlimited completely? I looked at the coverage map and I'm about 5 maybe 10 miles from there coverage. The thing is there are different colors on the coverage map there and they don't say what each color means.

the only advantage with unlimited is to leave you computer on allnight and it will download about 200mb.

I'm back to posting and will just ignore the threads and issues that annoy me here. After all I came here for info and to help not to argue.
Don't worry about it, Laying people off must be a hard thing to do, Ive never done it and dont ever want to, it must make you feel rotten inside, fair play to you though it had to be done and you did it and thats that, time to move on and get your head straight and focus on what you have left, going away for a few days to sort yourself out was good and shows you are a person who is sensible in the way you that think, time and space is the best way to cool a fluttered head, well done, now your back enjoy talking to members and if you feel aggrieved by something or someone take a break, make a cuppa tea take 5 or 10 mins then start over, well Ive said enough now so hope you feeling better already take care.

LOL I can download 200MB overnight with dial up man. I should hope its better than that. Speed are up to 1.8mbps right now with average download speeds of 400-700 kbps. I'd be happy downloading around 50-75KB/s during peak hours. Much better than my 5.5KB/s I get now. Here is a map of the coverage in my area with the thumbtack pretty close to were i'm at.



@ Blackjack I think some of you are mis understanding me. They HAVE been laying people off. I thought I was going to get laid off and possibly lose my job!
