  1. Thanks for the advice, I'm calling Frontier and ordering DSL. . .so long DWay!!!
  2. Hi again, sorry I'm been MIA...I've had my head stuck in a Microbiology text book for the last few months . Anyway, here's my DWay 6000 D/L speeds (they've been slow for a while now). And here's a question for all of you that are smarter than I am: We received a letter from our local phone company (Frontier) stating that we can now get DSL (1 mb download/128 kbs upload) for $49.99 a month ($13 less than DWay). Would you switch? :::.. Download Stats ..::: Download Connection is:: 829 Kbps about 0.8 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB) Download Speed is:: 101 kB/s Tested From:: https:
  3. Thanks, I'll stick w/the 6000, and DWay. It seems to be fast enough for me. As for U/L, I don't even test, it's too depressing and it really doesn't matter. Re: the price, I believe it's about the same, maybe $10 more a month for the pro plan? (I have the "home" plan) Also, I like you're logic regarding people switching to WildBlue...more for us! Here are my D/L stats for this morning EDT. :::..

  4. Thanks, I changed my profile. Actually, I was just kidding with ghostmaster, I don't mind being called a "dude" (I've been called worse!) Re: 4000, the 6000 is the only modem I've had. Also, did you receive an email/info from hughes "inviting" you to purchase the HN7000S? I checked out the "deal" and they promised faster D/L & U/L for only $49.99 (the purchase of the new modem--self install) and of course a 15 month contract.
  5. Thanks for the advice, I will do the repair myself, save some $. Now here's another $6 million question: what do you think of upgrading to DW7000? And ghostmaster, it's "Chick" or do you call everyone Dude?
  6. Thank you Water & Roco. Water, I've posted my question on the thread you suggested, thanks again.
  7. Help....I have direcway 6000 and I need a part replaced on the dish itself (I don't know what it is, but the seal is worn on it and when it rains it fills with water, thus no internet; then the water leaks out, tada, internet) Anyway, the installer has suggested that b/c I've had it 3 yrs+ that I just switch to Wildblue $199 install w/faster speeds. He said it would be cheaper than repairing the direcway dish. Any ideas? DSL & Cable not an option....live in the "sticks!"
  8. I'm new, "Hi" to all, and I need some advice re: direcway vs. wildblue....do I just explain it all? or what? Sorry, I've never done this before....
