  1. Here just another reason to dump Direcway like I plan to do slm81555:::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 324 Kbps about 0.3 Mbps (tested with 386 kB) Download Speed is:: 40 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net (main) Test Time:: 2006/03/22 - 8:38pm Bottom Line:: 6X faster than 56K 1MB Download in 25.6 sec Tested from a 386 kB file and took 9.75 seconds to complete Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1. Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5 Diagnosis: May need help : running at only 33.96 % of your hosts average (direcpc.com) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-SBEU4ORLZ
  2. Well now that the FAP slap is over my latest test is :::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 679 Kbps about 0.7 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB) Download Speed is:: 83 kB/s At least it's stable but...of course I can't DOWNLOAD anything but I sure can browse.... I'm really really tempted to give it up, scrap the dish and cross over to DSL territory...
  3. I'm A DW 6000 user and laugh all you want...I did when I saw how ridiculous the speeds were. Yes I will start posting my speed tests here.
  4. Yeah hydraulic brakes and then a BIG anchor for about 12 hours. I was ready to tear the dish down and dust off the old modem because 56kps would have been a vast improvement. I simply was gathering some bit torrents and apparently they ADD up to that 169meg limit awfully quick. Until that point I had never paid attention to FAP before because in the my 5 years of using Direcway it had never been an issue. Needles to say I am now looking for an alternative. In a very rural area like mine there aren't many choices yet. I'd LOVE cable but"no such animal" out here. Direcway tech support went over the line from bad to just plain ridiculous when I told them I had dropped to 11kps down. The guy said "yeah but what is your case number" and proceeded to run me through the same tired tests they've tried to make me do over and over and over again until he mentioned FAP. Unfortunately until that point I never realized the cutoff point was 169meg. In this day and age of Gigabytes and Terrabytes where have these guys been? I really felt duped.
  5. Here's a little insight on FAP... 624 kps down /64 kps up (bad but tolerable) download some files and WALLA 11 kps down/ 25 kps up 624 then FAP then 11...any questions?
