10Mbps DirecWay?

Recommended Posts

I have a friend in my small town of 2,000 people whom has a faster internet connection than I do.  I have RoadRunner at 5Mbps/384Kbps and his connection is about 10Mbps.  The only rational thing that I can think of is that his connection is very fast because his father works and runs a DirectTV store in his house.  Am I right in assuming that his speeds are very fast because of that?

I HIGHLY HIGHLY doubt anyone gets 10Mbs on DirecWay, except maybe major businesses, because large businesses that like their service=more advertising=more people suckered into their crap=much more money for DirecWay...

His speeds might be faster than the average DirecWay user, but i doubt anywhere near 10Mbs (unless he found a way to uncap it)

Yea, its possible... satellite is CAPABLE of incredible speeds... but we have DirecWay limiting us... you want to hear speed?  My best download burst was 10MB in 2 seconds... with DirecWay... then it dropped to 80KBs...
