Brandon stated they have spotty internet coverage at the track. So if he is dealing with a bad connection there is not much he can do really. There is supposedly a satelite truck on the way for him to hook up that way. Brandon knows what he is doing, there is just so much he can do with a bad connection.

I sympathize with a bad connection...to a point. However, this should not have anything to do with an account upgrade. If you are going to accept money for a service you need to provide the service or at least upgrade the account. Have a system in place to make sure it happens.

I 100% agree. You need to have people in place to make this happen right away. If you can't handle the traffic and upgrading the people willing to pay, don't offer the service. I sit in queue for over 2000 people or whatever it is, only to be kicked off again. It's not like this race was a secret.

Live RC is a great infancy service of live race reports. You have to expect problems with such a specialized service. If you bought the service just for this race, you spent a bunch. But if you are into most race types like I am then it is a low cost service for me. I view many races through the year on Live RC.

Brandon is not a TV station with a huge financial backing and equipment. This is all done though his capability with a crappy internet connection.

I do not think you can expect this to be like Speed Vision guys.

So when your internet connection is down or TV cable/dish is down, do you call them and tell them the same way as you are acting here?

Technology has never been perfect. It was up and working earlier for me just fine. But if you are at work in front of the PC all day trying to watch Live RC, then maybe your boss should give you more to do.

Yeah, this is disappointing! This is the first time I ever used liverc....so $30 down the shitter. Like everyone is saying, if you're gonna charge, make sure your product is worthy.

I'm not expecting HD cameras or great announcing. I could care less if there was only one camera. But I'm a paying customer now and my account isn't being upgraded. It says it's done instantly when you pay. I can't even access my account, because the page won't load. That's all I'm asking for, so I don't have to wait in queue. I understand the connection isn't the best and I accept that. At least have somebody on hand to upgrade accounts so I'm not waiting in queue.

No, but if you order boxing or UFC or some other live event from your cable company and are missing it due to technical issues, you don't just sit back while it's going on and go "i hope it gets fixed before the main event".

I know Brandon is doing the best he can, and doesn't have nearly the resources that other companies do, but when you pay extra just for this one event and you aren't getting what you paid for, you have the right to complain.
