A) What kind of speed are you getting with DSL ? (www.speedtest.net) 60 seconds sounds awfully quick for DSL. My 1.6Mbps would never be able to get those results. B) I've been with D* for almost 12 years, spent plenty of $$$ getting an 2 entire homes wired and connected to four TV's. I easily could have chosen cable but didn't. C) Did I expect VOD 12 years ago? No, but Comcast has offered the service for at least the past 2 years, and for what it's worth, they didn't ask subscribers to meet a minimum bandwith requirement in order to access the service. D) I thought these forums were available to discuss Directv and their methods of providing the service? If someone chooses to question a perceived shortcoming, do they really need to be berated for it? I've loved DTV from day one, warts and all. It's why I chose to be a CE tester.
