Check out my Ookla Speedtest result. What's your speed? http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/737544849

:Edit, it is taking about 100 minutes to download 1GB of data... (Battlefield 4 update)

They had better fix this when I call them on Monday, otherwise I will cancel both the service and claim all charges so far as fraud with my bank. (Bait and Switch) Even though no customer has signed an agreement they still claim a contract based on dslreport reviews, I never even saw a copy of the terms and they will charge a fee if you cancel. So this might get interesting if they refuse to work with me...

Then my only option is At&t's data plans. My new plan is $100 for 10GB plus $15 per phone. I can add an additional 10GB for another $50, but would that truly be enough to support game and updates in addition to online play and regular internet use? Obviously Plus games would be off limits but would everything else work?

Wow at that internet service speed. They owe you a fix or a refund on general principle.

Are you using their equipment? If so then check that you have their latest and greatest. If your local office gave you an older model modem and such that they had lying around you should demand the update. Comcast changed their modem and router requirements on me last year with no notification, and suddenly my stuff was off the compatibility list (same happened to a friend on the opposite coast with a different company). I didn't notice until my connections were awful for a month or two. I own mine so a trip to the store was an easy fix. Hope it gets better.

EDIT: My friend ran his PS3 through his phone plan for a couple days when the snow knocked out his home service. Two PS3's in his house and me playing Minecraft with him and his kids seemed to run fine. Internet play probably won't use much,but forget those giant Plus games.

The PS3 won't work with it at all, it keeps timing out. I got the Battlefield update, and PS4 firmware after two hours. Their unlimited data period has had more down time that up time so far. The youtube tv app also refuses to work. Thankfully even as slow as this is, it is still fast enough for mobile youtube... and buffering...

I doubt they will have people working tomorrow (today), but I may as well try... Odds are I will be fighting this one tooth and nail.

(Yes everything is up to date, they don't exactly have a long list of equipment for this service. There is no local office, these installers work out of their homes under a contractor)

And the service has been down for almost half an hour now... total waste of time and money. Now I know why they required me to pay the installer out of my pocket. (Even though they will credit me on my first bill) That is $50 I won't see again if they refuse to help me and I am forced to cancel/fight.

Wow pen. That sucks. Do you have any other satalite options? Any other carrier options at all other than cellular? I know Dish was supposed to have some kind of new tech for internet.

I would think the ping times using cellular for gaming would be a big issue

Dish and Hughes Net are the other options for Satellite, neither has a data free period. I have no cable or DSL options, I am between towns and no company feels it is worth the cost to serve the area.

This is my At&t 4G, which is the fastest and most reliable cell provider in my area.

So you have landline service? Who is it through? If it's through AT&T, when is the last time you asked about Internet service? They have new tech that can get internet out much further than they used to through IPDSL and pair bonding.

So I just traded tomb raider for NFS. I'll try to play tomorrow night.

I met the guy with my wife in the car, I did it on the way to bring her to the hospital. Talk about priorities. HA

I brought all the appropriate gear with me. Vita for remote play, ipad for commander mode and the MacBook for all other needs.

I remember you telling me about having "a third on the way". Is the wifey in labor?

Got my speed issues sorted out, I am now getting over 10Mbps down vs 1.5. Upload speeds are still crap, but that is no shock. (.15 up now vs .08) so no streaming on twitch. I'll be doing more updates tonight after midnight and attempt to download Outlast to test the speed.

Well, it works, 20% of the time. At&t blocks ports so I am stuck with Nat type 3 and the servers don't like that. I often can't connect and when I do it is only slightly laggy (and being rusty doesn't help) I lost connection on a game of Rush and called it quits.

Looking online it seems there really isn't a fix for this with at&t, which sucks. At least I can play now...

Sat Internet will be horrendous, Say no to Hughes. Ping is just bad; cell ping is better.

Cell isn't much better thanks to the ports being locked off, I tend to get kicked often when using my 4G if I can get into a server at all. At least with Satellite I can take advantage of the unlimited data period after midnight and no overage fees. It lets me get updates, download games and watch videos, and that is all I expected of it.
