Speed test server?

I’m in Oregon and lately when I use the Viasat Speed Test the server that it pulls up is in Kansas. Previously it pulled servers in the Porland area. Does this have any effect on the speed?

When I use Fast.com to check my streaming speed its the same as prior checks.

Hi @Oma !

This is an unfortunate side effect of satellite connections. If the satellite you’re communicating with is closer to the ground station in Kansas (for ex.), that’s the one your connection will use for your server.

Thankfully this doesn’t affect your speeds at all, those are always tied to your plan and network area – the “real” one, and not wherever the satellite thinks you might be. :sweat_smile:
