ISDN can be faster than D'way!


Recommended Posts

We got D'way to connect to another system... it worked only slightly better than 56K

dialup, the time from making a keystroke to seeing it appear on the moniter was over

1.5 seconds. In a last ditch effort to make _something_ work we just tested out ISDN.

The difference is amazing! Part of it is the latency, but I believe that the _faster_

upload is making most of the difference. Now I've got the ammo to get out of D'way's

contract owing nothing (I'm on my 2nd *30 day* extension!), because this shows that

their service (in this instance) is _slower_ than dial-up (figuring that ISDN is still *dial-up*).

Now, to be fair, downloading web pages, etc. is definitely much slower, but for anyone

who needs to interact with another system (remote desktop) ISDN is the way to go!

Until we get DSL in 6 months, Karl
