do you know what this company, Startec using as the backbone, ? Is it SAT3 or VSAT? If you are not sure could you please make a simple test?

1. Go start-->Run

2. Type "cmd" (without the "wink and press enter

3. On the prompt type: ping www.yahoo.co.uk

You will get a number at the end in ms. Please post the average figure.

Thanks

Downloads are great - downloading Vista RC2 right now- avg KB/sec is 15.4 on 128 K which is great

The only problem I have with them is that they have not been able to setup port fowarding for me to use torrent clients.
so downlaods are horrible. No lost seson 3 for me now.

yeap, it's VSAT, sat3 ping to uk servers or european servers i.e. www.yahoo.co.uk will be between 120-250ms. Used to be 120 few months ago, now is around 200-220, i guess is nitel's problem.

Also, often you will get some packet losses on VSAT
