Pegasus’ consumer-grade satellite service has been just fine for the last few weeks. There have been occasional outages, none lasting more than an hour or so. Several times the satellite modems have needed to be unplugged and replugged, but they’ve started right up afterwards. The lag between clicking and getting a response is noticeable. So on balance I’m still happy with the service, but it’s still not a business-class solution.

Today’s question is: what in the world is DirecWay? Hughes issued some press releases and opened up this web site a few days ago, but there’s no way to tell if it’s a replacement for DirecPC, a new type of service, or something else. Any ideas?
