Recommended Posts

i just called my var and told them to shove it;s dw6000 and i wasnt gonna pay any more , speeds get totally ridiculous day time and variable but better speeds at night , that;s just without the fag , i meant fap policy.

your anger is maybe well placed, you expected more speed, but then look at the people that need something faster than dialup and live out in the sticks. they would be happy to triple their speed, if they need it badly enough.

i understand there's plenty of people with dialup , but why we have to conform with this service without doing nothing about it , i for example got caught in the direcway propaganda wagon , and really believed the greatness of this service but once they got you between the ropes with a 1 or 2 year contract they dont stop hitting your balls!!.Then dont have what to do or where to turn cause if you cancel get ready to pay a pile of cash , but then again it was my own mistake knowing how directv is ruled this being the same company .

"they would be happy to triple their speed" , to respond this i will only say that nobody has a high speed connection  to surf webs if you know what i  mean.

A 7000 model? Hughes got people with the 6000, probably another ploy to increase the heartache of long-suffering dway users. When you don't think they can go any lower, they offer something even worse. I thank god I still have the 4000 and I'll be saying goodbye to dway if it ever breaks down.

:twisted::angry5::icon_pale: I just got my 6000 yesterday and I am incredibly disappointed in the speed.  I really though I would be able to tel the difference with my dial up but I am not sure it was worth the money i am going to end up paying for this.  the installer was at my home from 10-5 trying to get this installed and downloaded.  He sat on the phone with direcway for an hour waiting for them to answer and never did.  They never told me about a 7000.  Should I have waited?

you can always complain to the attorney general of your state - in most states it is against the law to misrepresent. If enough people complain you may at least get out the contract - not much help I know but better then nothing - you will notice on there directv ads they always say how fast it is but never show you

man is anybody happy with dw :haha:

Actually, I'm happy with my service, if I could just get them to make it stable.

Here are a few hints, first off, get a buisness account, support is better (and us based) and speeds are higher, plus you have more of a chance of complaining.

Second off, make sure your installer did his job, if he didn't call the company he works for or direcway and ask that somebody else come out.

Thrid, make sure your credit card company knows you are unhappy, make sure to document all the times you called, what they said complete with support ticket numbers.

I'm happy with my dway as it's much faster now (around 950kB/s), but I hate the latency times. But there's nothing that can be done about that, since you can't exceed the speed of light to make the latency times lower.  :haha:

there is no way your getting 950kb/s on dway thats a 7.7mbps connection. you maby can get 950kbps but not 950kb/s..

Up to 3 Mbps/ 768Kbps

$19.95 a month.

http://www22.verizon.com/ForHomeDSL/channels/dsl/packages/default.asp

I would rather get that than paying $59 a month for slower speeds and a cap of 169 mb per 4 hours.

Anyway, are you on the 4000 modem?

Go for it and be the Ginnie Pig, and let us know. It is a shame that you want to throw you money away that you spent on the Satellite.

They say Up To that speed, Not guaranteed.

Well when you're a 14 year old who gets paid $5.50 an hour, needs to buy a new screen for his laptop, and is saving up for a new computer, it's a lot of money.

Well, unfortunately I can't be the ginnie pig because I don't live in an area available for dsl. Throw away my money? Do you love sattelite or something? Anyone who has it would get rid of it in a heartbeat if dsl was available in their area, And for a lower price... I would be a lot more happier if we were getting the kind of speeds that we're getting now if we only paid $20 a month.

Thats a lot of money To waste on your budget.

Yes, but I'm wasting it on a good cause.
