Nice speeds. Direcway, is that a satellite provider? I assume so because of the "Clear Skies" bit, and because there's no 't' after Direct.

Although the upload speed is not the greatest (it never is), the download speed is really good. It'd be cool to know if you have the option in the future of using dsl for upload (maybe through third parties).

This is his provider http://www.canadianisp.com/cgi-bin/i...20Incorporated It's actually two way satellite that he is using.

That's really cool, 2-way satellite. Cost too much now though for me. However, may be a good alternative if you lack broadband access in your area.

Caledon, I'm not sure about that area, whether they are covered or not.

I agree on the weak upload, it's getting better. I've ordered the new DW4020 Lan terminal adapter box, and with promised increase uploads and other features like bandwidth on demand (pay as you play. This is just speculation at this time though!!

Stay tuned...

As long as it's not done every single day. And done for a reason, like today's heavy snow. Then it's fine.
