I was genuinely excited about this feature, especially that it was automatically being offered to Diamond customers. After reading the above instructions, however, I may not be able to use this product as I reviewed the information in late May. I also employed my Internet connection based on the instructions and noticed that my fastest download speed was around 2-3 Mbps, both using Internet Explorer and Giganews through Newsbin Pro. I am now wondering if it has anything to do with being late to the party. I also realize that there can be initial kinks that need to be worked out and am happy to offer my time to help with them as Giganews has provided me with more than excellent service for more than 3 years. I hope that it will be possible to use this product with the speeds I receive without it as I believe strongly in privacy.
