This looks good today. I wish it would be this way all the time.

There are days that I get speeds @ 1X better than dialup. Uploads

sucks, but what do I upload any way?

:D Got Wildblue recently....speed down is regularly 200KBytes/s and speed up around 28KBytes/s.  Down load burst speed has been as high as 375KBytes/s.  For satellite service

the speeds are pretty good.  Latency is regularly around 600msec.  These values are for the

most expensive service package offered.

I had DirecWay using the old DW4000 2-way system.  Download speeds usually ran

about 400kBits/s, but upload speeds were HORRIBLE!!  The usual upload speed was a

miserable 22kBits/s or about the same as dialup.  I suffered with it for 13 months, then

dumped it.

Have you ever tried to send out a 3MB MP3 to someone using dialup??  It takes forever!

DirecWay slow upload speeds have the same limitation.

400 kb/s is pretty damn good....
