jkandra I feel for you on the dial up part. I know we all joke about it not being much slower, but in reality I do remember how much slower it was. When I first got on sat I felt like I was riding on a rocket compared to dial-up. And I was on 28kbps. Was not hard telling my wife I was switching over. She took it OK.  :angry5:

A week or 2 shouldn't be too bad. And when you get that blazing 3.0, you won't even look back. It will be running so smooth, you will think you died and went to heaven. I tried out a friends it was great, I hated to turn it off.  :D

And storms won't even faze you. Enjoy you lucky dog.  ;)

It may seem like i'm complaining about 1 Meg when really its not that bad however when you were traveling @ twice that speed it seems in relation "a walk in the park". I was just looking  dsl reports.com and found out some interesting relations to DirecWay which i'll post just incase you havent seen them before.

The following satellites/transponders currently have upload/download speed results stored in them. Just click the satellite/transponder to see its results:

It seems that most don't see 1 Meg.

I made it in the top 100

      For some reason the java console is not working correctly using IE...so I switched to Opera which IMHO is better anyway. Try yours using the same location

OK

You may want to copy/paste this box:

dslreports.com speed test result on 2006-10-01 11:31:12 EST:

Your download speed : 858 kbps or 107.2 KB/sec.

That is 20.5% better than an average user on direcpc.com

Your upload speed : 25 kbps or 3.1 KB/sec.

That is 86.4% worse than an average user on direcpc.com

I believe your correct Ghostmaster [quote author=ghostmaster link=topic=16302.msg175970#msg175970 date=115

Told ya,  It usually takes a day or 2 to get the thread going.

It appears they are moving 4000 users to the same transponders, thus crowding the transponder with 4000 users and lowering speeds.

Wow, what a crock. Are you sure there are no reasonable alternatives.

That would really piss me off. You guys are so few, what is their prob anyway.

Just cause a few might jealous that they either did not stay with old glory, or because they did not know they could still get one like I did?

That just totally stinks. Like you guys are really hurting them. You guys are the original ones that helped to pay the way so they could improve it in the first place. I guess some people are just penny pinchers.

I dont agree at all with the way that Hughes is going about this, BUT I do understand why they would need to do it.  First, every different kind of modem takes different equipment, software, and support at the NOC.  Right now there are 5 modems being used.  DW3000, 4000, 6000, 7000, and 7000s.  It comes down to cost, and im sure it costs them a lot of money to have to continue providing support for these old systems.  It's just like M$ cutting support for windows 98. 

Could they have gone about doing it a different way?  Yes, provide an affordable upgrade with no contract attached.  But they chose not to go that route.

But not supporting should not be cutting them off at the knees. They do not deserve that for any reason. I am sure they paid as well as anybody else.

After being with it so long, it would almost make me go dial-up. At least let them have it for what they are offering it to us for. The choice is not as good as what you said, but it is at least middle of the road that way. I think they should also give them something for turning in the old 4000.

Well I hope it turns out well.  :)

Just my thoughts.

You're right, what they are doing is unethical.  Like I said, I don't agree with how they are doing it, but I do understand the need.

Now Tommie, you know you would go with Wild Blue before you'd go back to dialup. :-)

I say let them trade it in and pay 50 bucks for a DW7000 , with NO contract.  That would be a fair trade.  The other route ofcourse is to get a used 6000 or 7000 off of EBAY.  Though I would go with the 7000 if you're going to go that route.  If for nothing else, get it for the ups.

Not really sure on the WB part, they seem to have just as many problems.

Your idea has merit on the trade in and such.

On the 6000 or 7000 it would depend on if there was any price diff and just how much, but probably the 7000. And it should be cheaper than $200.

I mean if you could pick up a 6000 for around $25-30 it would be worth considering. And don't forget to make sure the contract is over on the one you are looking at.  ;)

From what I've been reading, certain beams are having issues. (Wild Blue)  It's not just overloading, it's the hardware and software at the NOCs I think.  They are getting their new bird up in a couple of months though.

Though it will fall short of being half as impressive as SpaceWay 3 is "supposed" to be.

Well for me to upgrade,,,,,,it will cost 400 bucks for the BUC / LNB mod and modem..... then an additional fee for the so called dish tweak then more money for the licencing fee. not to mention a contract of 12 Months.!

Well.....it's just not going to happen! I told them.

I'm affraid my days are numbered as to how long i'm going to keep this ISP. I'm really considering going ISDN with another phone line until such a time as Wireless comes my way.

I have fulfilled my contract of 89.99/month plus taxes for a total of 103.49/Month for 12 months so I'm paying per month now. @ the same rate I might add!

Then he had the Balls to tell me that the /month rate would be cheaper than what i'm paying now.

Bad move!! now i'm pissed! i'll be intouch,

Ciao/// Gex

Well ISDN will cost me 70 bucks /month for the 2 lines plus the ISP fees.....about the same as Satellite.! I'm going to pay month by month for now until such time as Wireless point to point comes my way. There will never be Cable or DSL @ this location. Oh well could be worse..... I was checking the forums @ dslreports.com there seems to be allot of sour notes over the 7000's.With allot of users barley making the 500k mark.

I will be moving to the City @ the end of the month (for the Winter) were Cable is scheduled to be installed Nov1st.

Good luck with your Hunt Tommie.

Actually I have never visited DSL reports. What do they do over there. I hear ghostmaster refer to it once in a while. But that is about it.
