All any of these programs do is compress the page which degrades the graphics. downloads will not be any faster.

Our ISP is offering a new thing called Turbonet. It will cost $1.95/mo. or $21/yr --- in addition to our monthly rate of $17/mo. They're giving us a 30-day free trial.
Thus far, I really like it because their claim to fame was it can improve downloading of pages UP TO 5 times as fast. Well ----- it's done that for us and then some. The information about it indicated that somehow they compress the data to make it load faster.
Things are still coming down the pike at 28800 bps ---- but somehow our pages are appearing instantaneously. We have many friends on cable and with turbonet, we're up there with the big boys (LOL)! I even compared it to what happens when I put a tik under Internet Options under don't display animations ---- and it is still much faster with the Turbonet.
I've inquired with our ISP re: how long they cache their pages as it must be something to do with that to make them "appear" to be coming in faster. Whatever it is, thus far I do like it and for our needs it might just be the thing.
Has anyone used this program or even heard of it? If so ----- do you like it?
