OK, here it is, got installed on the 8th, with a 7000. I signed up for the 700Kbps download and 128Kbps upload, however I am running faster dl speed during off-peak times. 89 West and 1150 is my satellite location (whatever that is supposed to mean :) ) My normal DL speed is in the 500Kbps, though it has gotten down to the 128Kbps area a couple of times for short periods of time. Signal strength of 75-80 and 66-69 for my cross pole number (or whatever it is called)

That is a little lower than my best of 168Kbps, only saw that once though :(. My upload has gotten as low as 49Kbps, but usually stays 60 or above.

Anyways, lot faster than dial up, very happy with Direcway, though I have no other choices except WildBlue, but I can't afford the install cost. (I've got the 99/99 plan)

Anyone know why I am running faster than my plan is supposed to be. That was a suprise, I figured they'd cut me off right at 700Kbps, but I am 800 or above most of the off peak times (11 PM till about 8 AM CST). During the normal day, I stay at around 500-600Kbps, though sometimes I've been as low as 128Kbps, but only for around 2 hours or so, the rest of the time I'm at least at 400Kbps.

And no, I'm not complaining, hope it stays faster, I just want to know if this will change or not. I am hoping it will not, except faster of course :)

BTW, I live in central Oklahoma, I've got a great line of sight, but the installer said that was the best I would get with the small dish. He was shocked, he said the highest before mine was in the mid to upper 60's, anyways, does 75-80 (it jumps around) sound good, with no trees, buildings, etc. in the way? And on my cross pole number of 65-69 does that sound good for that transponder/satellite (89W 1150) and location or could I get a better number on that?

I guess 3 out of the 4 were off, lol :).

WildBlue has had some issues, but things have been improving. My worst day with WildBlue is still better then DirecWay when comparing overall performance.
