7000 upgrade

Recommended Posts

For me it was worth it.  I saw pretty close to a 200k improvement in download and when my uploads were working properly they were around 200k.  I'm stuck on the 128k rate code right now so the best I can do is around 80k up.  A lot of people are seeing consistant 150k to 200k uploads.

Like anything else with dway it's really a crap shoot as to whether or not you'll see improvement.  If your uploads are really bad right now, it might be worth doing the upgrade.  If your uploads are ok then your probably better off staying with what you have.

Do you consider the business package the "fastest package"?

I'm sure business users see some slowdown at night, but definately not as much as we're getting (but how many business' use Direcway at night? Isn't it mostly during the day?)
