I have used onspeed.  how it works is this:

basically, you have two types of dialup. your usual dialup and the onspeed 
dialup if the onspeed dial up fails.  you can turn onspeed off and on as you 
want by closing the programme.  basically instead of routing your internet 
through normal channels, you go through onspeed's servers.  This can cause some 
problems with certain webpages, the names of which I forget now, though i think 
they were few and far between.  if you can access a webpage using the onspeed 
service, disable onspeed and try again.  Onspeed is good value for what it is. 
it costs about £25 a year.  I don't know if it works with cable modems though.

Hope to hear from you soon.

  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.
