DirecPC and DirecWay are the services offered via satellite. DirecPC requires modem for uplading but DirecWay doesnt since its a 2 way service to compete with Starband (E* satellite internet provider)
I have had directv dsl for 4 months and have been totally satisfied. I am six blocks from the CO and get nearly 1.7Mbps download. The gateway/router is easy to install and supports DHCP with 4 IP addresses. I think its a winner...compared to Pac Bell.
I've got it as well. I've had it since it was Telocity (DirecTV bought Telocity). It works well. I've had a cable modem and DSL and I'd probably side with the cable modem, but a good DSL connection isn't bad.
Some of the benefits of DirecTV-DSL (Telocity):
* Static IP
* No PPPoE
* Web-based email checking
Yes, DirecTV-DSL is a stupid name. It has nothing to do with TV or satellites which the name implies. I wish they would have just bought it and left the name Telocity.
