Dish Internet

Anybody have it? What speeds are you getting? Overall opinion?

We have it at my shop. It's good for work where I'm not using it much but would never get it for home use.

Speed test shows.

813 ms ping
2 - 5 MB Download
.33 upload

It's okay with SD video but stutters with HD. And gaming is pretty much a no go.

Also, data caps suck.

Wow that ping time is horrid. It's about as fast as an old man getting out of a rocking chair to answer a door.

Yeah, that pretty much goes hand in hand with satellite internet.

I just switched from Hughs to Dish. The salesman said it would be 5X faster. Well, it's not. It's just as good, but no faster. Also it's $10 more a month which isn't a big deal, but had to sign a 2 year contract. Now I've seen a post on facebook saying that Dish has a "data limit" this lady says she used up her monthly limit on day 16 of the month. I'll be talking to dish....already wishing I had stayed with Hughs which was cheaper, no contract, and no limit for basically the same speed.

I have nothing good to say about Dish Network.

My 2 year contract with them will be up in November, and I will never do any business with that company again.

Satellite internet sucks. I recently ditched Hughesnet and am very glad I did. Slow, unreliable and their download allowance crap is very annoying. I went with Verizons 4g homefusion. A whole lot faster and when it rains or gets really cloudy I can still use the internet.
