all I can say is for what I use it for it is better than needed .if we had a better cable company here I might feel differently but I am completely satisfied with my DirecWay account .I have had broadband in some form since 1999 so I have had good providers and bad and although DirecWay may not be perfect it serves me well

Always Blistering Hot speeds.....Broadband out if this world!!

I guess if you do not know any better scores that are little off: Speed: 770(down)/213(up) kbps **

(At least 23 times faster than a 33 kbps modem)

Finish.

If I were 213up it would not take several mins to send a simple jpg. (500k) photo. now would it?  :tard:

Hi Sparks,

Wouldn't it be a good idea to check my stats and verify WHERE they come from before making blind allegations? Blinded by hate for DirecWay is usually  counter productive as you can see below..

I did not point any blind allegations at anyone, I stated that I could not beleive you was using anything other then dways test results, because no one on here gets the results using direcway! APART FROM YOU, now if you actualy posted your results with the information that is provided by testmy.net, it would have made sence.

Now if you are getting them speeds you would like to inform us how, maybe you would like to answer my question in my previous post? ARE YOU USING A RESIDENTIAL OR A BUSINESS PLAN??????

Are you using a 4000, 6000 or what, what size dish do you have?

No need to jump down my throat, I wa mearly responding to what I see, nothing more, nothing less!

Mega bucks business plan. 2 locations with a 1 meter dish. 4000 and 6000 and some of those were uncapped. Here's the 6000 a few minutes ago. I always try to use the 2992 size test here. Some of my "average" on testmy.net were using dialup for a comparison so that's why the average is down.

I'm using a Mac UNIX system..

Dway is my best option at this time, however I am far from loving it! The system is far more capable than it operates. When the speed test are great at 3am, however are near dialup at 8pm that reveals the problem to me is not settings on my computer! Sorry, slow speeds and latency just isn't an attraction for me.

You know, with Direcway you have good and bad days. Consistency is something I would like to see. But tinkering with tweaks can be kind of cool. As long as they work! lol! All in all, I probably love my Direcway more than hate it. Without it I'd be using a phone line and wouldn't have anything to complain about!..................NeeDSpeeD

Hmm...doesn't look there always that speed?

I have access to Charter cable here along with Direcway. At our other location I have SBC DSL and Charter cable. The speeds drop off during peak times on all my ISP providers. As the number of subscribers to any ISP increases traffic will be backed up.

A satellite connection in a remote area is worth to me many more times than I'm paying. Sat telephones are typically $300 a month or more and at peak times they back up also. Individual government sat connections are all more expensive per month more than Direcway. If you want an ISP in an area where nothing else is available be prepared to pay the price. If not, don't sign the DW contract and if you do sign common sense warns you to read it carefully.
