For me it's just the opposite. I had Charter here before I had Direcway. When Charter was up it wasn't much more than dialup speed. I threw the cable out in the street and told um to come and get it.:D I live on the east side of the Sierras with the local third world Verizon telephone co. So it's nice to have something faster than Charter.

Not only does the product have to come to the area......service as well. I previously had a capped 128k connection speed on cable. The system would very seldom work correctly, better part of the time it would not work at all. Prices were ridiculous as well. My options were very limited at my home.

Option #1

Speeds of service available are:

*64 K w/1-email
