No. I'd much prefer you post your employers line of BS so that EVERYONE can read it.

 

I'm no electronic engineer, only someone who has about 60 years experience working on electronics and the past 40 have been in the HIGHLY specialized field of what is called DEBUGGING (looking for eavesdropping devices). Actually I spent 10 years with a gocvernment agency looking fdor them, installing them and conducting security surveys of highly sensitive facilities. Tje king 99% of the population know little or nothing about. And the last 48 supporting some of the largest companies with sweeping their offices or training theor pown people how to do. Now, If I didn't have all that experience I hav a son who was in electronic test equipment repair in the Air Force for more than 20 years and has his Masters in Computer security. he has said what we are told is BS. It is a problem with DISH and upu don't know how to fix it. But why worry,; we either watch dish or go for another company that may not be around next week.

No. This is connecting over our data plan with Verizon. It is the only app we have issues with. Also, like I stated before, my hubby is a Truck Driver... which mean he needs access anywhere in the US. We had DirecTV and never had trouble with their app, but switched to Dish and have had the same issue ever since. It is fine if we are at home, but he travels the entire 48 states.

Hi there, Jamill4. Your device connection is important to stream DISH Anwyhere, you mentioned that it is fine when you are at home, is the buffering issues when your husband is on the road trying to watch services over his mobile data?

Yes. I feel like maybe the responses are not being read carefully. I did say that it was over data.

Depending on the area that your husband is in, the connection speed may vary. We recommend the 4 Mbps for HD programming. When he stops to watch, trying a connection test to see if he has at least that speed will help reduce buffering issues, but even with higher speeds, buffering can happen since it is a continual live channel stream, as opposed to streaming an On-Demand program that has a finite file.

Agree that all snipe hunt responses by dish so far on this subject are BS. I have 125Mb down and 18Mb up and still have issues. All cat 6 in home. Buffering is still an issue when I’m mobile or at another good WiFi location. YouTube tv, Hulu, fire stick, Roku all work with other stream apps. Going to cut cord and cut my satellite when contact is up. Yes hey will keep you thinking it is your fault till the day you die.
