If you are using it for surfing the Internet they are pretty good. The only type you will be able to get from someone like DirecPC is the 2-way. They no longer have dial up-satellite down service. Speeds are near cable modem with download being much faster than upload.
They only have a USB connection available for the consumer plans. That means if you want to hook up multiple computers you will need to use Internet Connection Sharing. Ethernet is available on the business class plans only.
For businesses that need to use it "live" for data work there is a level of latency (delay) that makes it a last resort choice. We don't spec it for our systems at all because of the latency. For Internet use where there is no other option then it is a good choice.
