Complaint Review: Wildblue communications
Wildblue communications Bandwidth usage seems manipulated, had service for years, no problems. Now usage is almost double without reason. Internet, Internet
After making some phone calls, oddly enough, it came down a few 100MB. So I really feel they are able to manipulate this figure at their end. I have had the bandwidth monitor not available for hours and hours at a time. So when you do a history, it goes from the morning of the one day to the morning of the next without any individual readings. We are not doing games, or videos, or movies. Just browsing and our MB is over 10000 every day. So explain this to me, where it isn't some kind of rip off. My daughter is usually the one on here, and she has been out of town since Wednesday. Since she is the one on here over 80 % of the time, seems our figures should be changing, and they are not. We are disconnecting whenever no one is on the internet. I thought there may be programs running whenever the internet is connected, that do not show up. That are starting up whenever the internet is connected whether you have a window open or not. If it is connected and just sitting there. No matter what, something really screwy has just started, and it was right around the time that their satellite went down that it started. I read that the angle being off on the satellite could make some locations require higher MB to do internet, because it is off. The are to switch to a satellite just sent up. I am waiting to see what happens with that. I was assured by customer support and technical support that this couldn't be what has occurred. I think it is a big coincidence.
After their total shut down, my MB was still almost maxed at my former usage level. It was around 7000, it has increased to 10000 and is just hovering around at that level for weeks, since we upgraded.
