The Direcway system has not been marketed very well and few know about it.
Yes it would meet the needs of most web-surfers, but it does not
have enough bandwidth to meet business/SOHO needs or the needs of people 
hoping to get things like video-on-demand.  Anyone running a server or
business or looking for video-on-demand needs more bandwidth.

No doubt about it...BPL is very attractive to those that couldn't care less
about who they "stomp" in order to get their bandwidth needs met.
