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?

There is no way he could be on a 4000 with speeds like that, he's on a 6000 or 7000 and likely a professional account.

Why are you quoting DSL to DirecWay Users?  Don't you think we know DSL is better than DirecWay?  Don't you think we'd all drop DirecWay if DSL came in the area? Gesh.

He says that his connection was faster than DSL...

And I've never seen a 6000 get that high...

I got speeds like that with D way with the 400 system and my signal was around 85-90 consistently. I just was able to get DSL in my area. There is no comparison. The raw download is about the same, but the upload and ping is awesome. I am also just using SBC lowest rate plan. I also like the lack of the hesitation for the return signal after a click is made. I feel for you guys that still have to use D Way, I really do. I do feel they screw the existing customers by not giving them the new equipment that the new customers get. Both people pay the same amount, but one gets a better product. Best of luck to you guys.

I have to point out that although a lot of the people in india have been hard for me to understand, in my case at least all of them have tried to be helpful and I imagine it is very hard to troubleshoot a system out of a script book half a world away.

It's not the consumer's job to be compationate to the business. The business is suppose to be compassionate to the consumer and not make you translate what the tech is saying. There company has the worse customer service I have ever seen.

pings an Dway are worse than dial up.  with a 7000 system, the pings are around 700 - 800ms, when the system is working properly.  Look into Wild Blue, they may be better for you.  Either way, with any satellite system, you won't be able to play shooters, or any twitch games, unless the point of the game is to lag and die.

Welcome oldiebut.  That's good that you got your money back, but that'll probably keep the AG satisfied.  I had a very good learning experience with the AG office inf AZ, and they're take was that if the company eventually performs, by way of delivery or refund, they throw the complaint to the bottom of the pile.  They want the non-performers who keep the money.

But you can still hope.

There is a new Sat. provider, WildBlue.  I use it, and sell it in my area.  Speeds up 1.5 down, 256 up.  I have seen speeds up to 2.1 meg down.  I've replaced several Direcway, and Starband systems.  Not one unhappy customer so far!  Check and see if anyone is installing in your area, I really believe you would be satisfied.

brand new installation...8 days of this...I am smokin' !!!!!

15 hours with tech support, and they don't know what's wrong.

and they want to charge me $400 to return this junk (refundable), but I already have $325 in it. What a waste! Not sure what my next step is.
