How do you guys get your FireFox speeds so good?  When I always test I either use IE or Opera.  For browsing I use Opera.  I love FF but it seems slower than both while browsing, and when I do a speed tests its always at the highest around 70-80 kB/s compared to like 130 kB/s with Opera/IE.

yeah i dont know mine are most of the time slow with firefox LOL just that was not

Before the past couple days, it would test really slow for me. It wouldn't browse much slower than IE, but Testmy.net results would come in lower than IE's. When I downloaded a file with Firefox, it was also just as fast as IE.

I finally got a call today from Dway corporate office concerning my grievance filed with the BBB. I actually got somewhere! He told me Dway does NOT guarantee any speeds and 100 to 500 down and 50 to 100 up is the norm!!! I said where the hell is that written and he told me in the user agreement. I said in the facs it states that the pro system can see speeds of around 750-800 and 100-125 during peak hours...nowhere does it state 100-500. He said it states "up to" these speeds in the agreement. I told him it was false advertising and wanted it changed. I also said every single tech has a different excuse and solution as to why Dway is so slow but it is usually on OUR end. He said he would bring it up at the board meeting this week. I also said I wanted the website to clearly state that average speeds during peak hours are only going to be between 100-500 and 50-100 instead of the totally false 750-800 and 100-125. He said he would bring that up. He was not a tech or even a level two tech but an exec at the corporate office. I would not close the BBB complaint until this is all corrected and the misleading information is fixed on the website so who knows???? He gave me two free months of service and said he would be getting back to me to see how everything is but it was MY misunderstanding about the "blazing fast internet speeds (directv ads)" and the "improved performance" boasts on the Dway site. I disagreed and said the ads were misleading and outright lies and I will not close the BBB complaint until this is adressed for new, unsuspecting souls who get roped into that 2 year contract and a $700 penalty for early termination. It is DWay who is breaking the contract by deceptive advertising and not the poor consumer who buys into it.  I am hoping so badly that the wireless carrier in my area will be out next week to add a node to the tower 5 miles from my house so I can get 1mbps up and down by the end of the month!!!  I will keep you all posted.  Yesterday during prime time my speeds dropped to 350/86 on AMC9....

Well, if it does work out, you will see a change in Dway's web page advertising! It will have to put in bolder print the actual typical speeds expected in prime time as between 250-500 and 50-100. Let's hope that happens! I did get the credit to my account however so now I have had 4 months credit. It can be done! Maybe if enough of us fight to get the credit from deceptive advertising, they would improve the system!
