  1. Hi Terry.
    Thanks so much for helping me. you were kind enough to help me. I had the question about the bandwidth use of a dvap. My dsl slows to a crawl in the evenings and i am concerned about how well i can communicate through a dvap.
    Thanks so much,

    • the quick answer is that they run on as little as 3G service on a cell phone. So, I would imagine that even if your DSL got REALLY REALLY slow. It would still work just fine. I do have a complete turnkey system available to ship just like the one I built Larry KI4TGI, if you are interested.
