Hopeful in NC

Hopeful in NC needs Dway warm and fuzzies

Recommended Posts

If you need more information you can look at these sites:

http://www.dslreports.com/forum/sat

http://www.wildblue.cc/

http://www.copperhead.cc/

Your not alone, there is a lot of people that can't get High Speed.

Thats why we went to Satellite. There is a lot of horror stories out there but it is still better than Dialup.

From what I have been reading it is better to get WildBlue than DirecWay. But they will start to slow down just like the rest of the Satellite companys. But right know it is better to get WB.

It is my impression that DirecWay has finally got off their duffs and fixed the problems on Satmex5. I have had my DW7000 Pro for about a month. I have been patient as I was confident they would get it right. I have been using DirecWay for 3 years on a Tripod and for me it was the only option. I consider myself fortunate to have Internet access wherever I travel. The speeds are finally respectable. I just hope it continues. BTW, I pay $69 a month.

My problem is the speed falls on its face up and down (not acceptable) during peak times 6-9pm EST obviously there is nothing wrong with with settings, equipment etc....if it works early am and late night. as of the moment this is an acceptable upload speed best I have seen yet! It would just not surprise me at all if the next one is closer to 10.

You got to remember that home users are not the only ones on,Satellite. Most of the Gas Station and Railroad has Satellite and quite a few others that use the bandwith at those times also.

But it is still better than DialUp.

DW dose suck at times.

and as I can see in your records skaye all your uploads connections are not at 140....they look unstable, but more consistent than mine. I see some connection speeds for you as low as 11.

Fortunately, Still Warm and Fuzzy at 8:30 PM EST.

I definitely have had slower speeds. I am starting to believe that Direcway has finally resolved some issues on Satmex5. The Upload and Download speeds have been consistently higher for two days now and I am hoping it will continue.

I'm in Corolla, NC (About as far North and East you can get) and I have NO choice except dialup (Which even at 28.8K is a push) or Satellite. If it was up to me, and in my personal opinion, I'd PERSONALLY shove the dish up EVERY PERSONS arse that I have had to come in contact with in the company. I also, personally, have to reboot the unit 3-4 times a week due to problems they can't figure out.

Somebody if filling the pockets, pillows, mason jars, etc...with our money......for whatever reasons people grump and complain, but do nothing about it ! Why I do not know? Not me, I pay for advertised service..now its time to provide it!

Do something about poor service and performance ......http://complaint.bbb.org/
