I'm guessing you're referring to the Exede Speedboost modem (DTV is going to be your television). Like all internet provider speeds the speed is advertised as "up to". In a lot of ways it's a safeguard for the provider as MANY MANY factors could cause you to not see that top speed (your equipment, routers, devices connecting....pick your poison there's plenty) If you'd like to see if you're getting close to it you can always go to speedtest.net or you can email us at exedelistens@viasat.com and we can look at it for you see if maybe the router could be restricting your speeds or not.
