Just to add, in my opinion, it will do absolutely nothing for a Broadband
connection.  If you are slow on Broadband, you want to complain <Smile>.

  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

  Thats all I really know about it.

  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,

  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

  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.
