Hello!

I was hoping that someone could help me. I work for a small business and we are getting killed each month by our local phone company. We are considering switching to Vonage to save money. We are in a rural area and the only broadband available is DirecTv's service, Direcway. Has anyone tried using Vonage with Direcway? Any information would be appreciated!

Thank you

Vonage over DirecWay works sporadically at best. There is no way you could use it to run a business. During most normal business hours, it will not work at all. This is from personal experience.

If you are serious about using Voip over satellite, look at DataBahn (www.thedatabahn.com). This is a commercial satellite service that has it's own Voip setup. It cost a bit more than Dway, but if you are operating a business, you need a reliable, well maintained connection with real customer service.

Thank you so much! I had a feeling it wouldn't work very well. Direcway is terrible. I had dial-up in 1998 that was faster than this sometimes. lol

I'll check out the link you provided. Thanks again!

Beware that any satellite service is stuck with transmission delays that are noticeable to the callers. Check out http://www.vonage-forum.com/ftopic9346.html . I wouldn't want to try it for business communications- with any satellite provider.

The delay is 500 milliseconds each way. This is 1/2 second. Many cell phones have that much delay and people adjust to it quickly. You will notice it, but don't think it will be a ten second delay or something.

No, its actually more like a full second - as you say, 500 milliseconds EACH WAY. You say something, it takes half a second for him to hear it, then another half a second before you'll hear his response. The full-duplex delay is a full second.

Not sure who your cell provider is, but I haven't had a cell conversation with a second delay in it at least in the last 10 years or so, since it started going digital.

That was 250 ms to the satellite and 250 ms back to the ground. That is 500 milliseconds or 1/2 second. Or did I add wrong?

OK...you are right about that. Cell phones are less than a second. But I said 1/2 second.
