Hey BrawnyDawg ...go to MYdirecway and run their speed test......you'll always look good there... :haha:

Must be about a 10kb test...shows that I can upload at 200-300kbps...that's a joke..

I was talking to level 2 support a few days ago.....when the TECH didn't know the diffrents between bits and bytes...I knew it was a lost cause... :haha: :haha:

God - DirecWay must really suck balls. Everyone is ALWAYS talking crap about them and people actually start whole websites about how much they suck. lol

Yep one of the biggest ripoffs I've ever encountered... :evil3:

I'm not getting over 1 meg....unless 3..11....maybe20..is called over.. :haha:....what's my average..375??

And they don't quote anything...they don't even guarantee it will work.....But they advertise BLAZING FAST SPEEDS......and do compares of 500Kbps to 33 dial up.

The test on mydirecway is the only test they seem to even honor a complaint about...I have called in many times about upload speeds. Test on this site would show the real speed...connection less than 20Kbps however the direcway site shows well above 100Kbps, so they proceed to tell you "very good speeds" "there is no problem" "all customers are running at the same speeds even commercial accounts". They seem to leave the fine print out in the advertisements about where the get the numbers from...my uploads on direcway site have been as high as 356Kbps! Explain to tech support that it takes 15mins to send out a 1MB digital pic the numbers do not come close to 356Kbps up?? They will tell you absolutely anything but the truth....the [glow=red,2,300]bandwidth is not there [/glow] at peak hours.

Sparky....just where did you think New Delhi was????...Tennessee... :haha:

I know where New Dehli is, i just thought it was an outsourced calling center seeing as they transfer you to level 2 over here!

Man If I knew what I know now, direcway would not have been an option, not for the prices we pay, I got better upload speeds on my modem, and the speeds they told me is inacurate, they told me 50 kb up and 500kb down avaerage, still waiting to see this.

In my opinion thats false advertising.

I do agree with you 100%, BUT there speed advertisements are based on speed test done from myDirecWay.....do a speed test on the Dway site and you will see the advertised speeds. Its unreal they even decide how fast there own system is by there own measurements? I wonder if that would work for a speeding ticket (oh officer my speed is not measured on your radar gun correctly...I calculate my total driving time divided by distance you see.) As long as the government lets them do it the way they have been I see no changes anytime soon for the better. I believe it's a decent designed system, it s just [glow=red,2,300]overloaded[/glow]....and there still adding new customers everyday.
