Direcway Speed

Recommended Posts

FYI

Sent an email to Direcway Support regarding speeds. Got a nice email with several things to try and four sites to test download speeds. My speed has been great since the email. I did nothing to tweak system etc. Running a DW6000, Windows XP. I just hope it stays this way. I enjoy the posts and the site very much.

:::.. Download Stats ..:::

Connection is:: 1005 Kbps about 1 Mbps (tested with 2992 KB)

Download Speed is:: 123 KB/s

Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/

Bottom Line:: 18 times faster than 56K you can download 1MB in 8.33 second(s)

Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/cgi-bin/get.cgi?Test_ID=F180OHK7J

HEY THAT IS MORE LIKE IT!!!!!!  yes!  You can expect your speeds to be higher on weekends and slower on weekdays ....as usual, but you can now always rest assured that unless something is wrong at NOC (maryland) you'll run faster than before, and most likely faster than at the moment because DWay is holding back just a tad right now.  Try it at like 5:00AM (2992 test) for the very best idea ...you may be pleasantly surprised.  Mine is only a bit faster than yours at this second ...so you are "in the pink."

Cheers!
