ONSPEED QUERYHi Ian: 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. hth Hope to hear from you soon. from Martin.

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.
