Real speeds? Post here!

Recommended Posts

I am curious to know something, on direcways website before you sign up for this junk you will see and I quote

DIRECWAY speeds are based on download speeds of up to 500Kbps. Stated speeds not guaranteed.

So who has ever seen speeds like this, now if you read the above, its not some lame "connection speed" its a download speed.

I have not been with them very long, in fact I just had my first bill, but up until now I have never seen 500Kbps.

Anyone fill me in on this? please post your highest speed and let me know the max you have ever hit.

Thanks

I understand sparky. I just wanted to try to suggest some things to check. There was no way for me to know that you had all that knowledge. No problem. Now that we have eliminated all that stuff we can go in a different direction. If you are using firefox that is part of the problem with your speed. Direcway is much faster using Internet Explorer. Are your speed test that you have posted been while using IE? As for if anyone has seen speed over 500KB, here is a link to my average.

I hope your speed issues level off. Remember it may take a couple of days for the NOC to catch up with your changes. I only use 1 tweak and that is TCP Optimizer found in this link. It is different from the one you may be able to find elsewhere.

You know what, and I feel like a complete tard now! lol,,,, I was looking at the damn thing wrong, I was comparing the Kbps to Kb/s DUhh, I did not even look what was written there, some puter expert I am! lol........

My speeds are not all that bad, I dont think I am going to get too much better then they already are, I have had better but I am on the east coast and I thought Horizons 1 was for a 1.2 meter dish, not the standard D-way oliptical dish? any one know more about that?
