Hi Ian. This works by installing software at your end which compresses the data that goes out over the Internet, and then sends it to a decompression server which will then forward it to its destination. It also uses a web proxy somewhere, I think. I personally don't feel you would get much benefit from this, and feel it would cause more problems than it would solve. If they offer a free trial, it may be worth trying it under your setup, to see if it really is worth the money for it - I have seen some people who use it, and some who don't like it. Thats all I really know about it. Thanks. Andrew. ________________________________ From: access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Ian Macrae Sent: 09 June 2005 09:31 To: access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [access-uk] ONSPEED QUERY Hi all, Because of NTL arrangements in our area, we're still on clunky old dial-up at home. My wife received an email promoting something called Onspeed. Here's part of what it said. OnSpeed is the solution for millions of internet users who are frustrated by having a slow internet connection. It's a quick, easy software download, which speeds up all dial-up internet connections by up to 5 times, putting it well within broadband territory. And if you've got broadband, you can expect pages to download 3 times faster with OnSpeed. Has anyone any view on or experience of this either in terms of its likely benefits or otherwise or its accessibility/usability with JFW? Cheers now.
