hi there, i thought i would spread the good news, you can get broadband speed out of your existing dialup connection and even increase your broadband connection. It works, check it out at www.whizzconnect.com.

Are you affiliated with the program at all cause it seems too god to be true. Are there any free trial subscriptions available ?

Hmm, I can think of 2 thins how that is possible
#1 First they edit the registry, to dramatically increase your COM and MODEM port speeds (which could lead to disaster)
#2 Second They connect you to a proxy, which holds regulary requested data.

Because their explanation just doesn't make much sence, or at least to me it doesn't.

All it does is compress the images so they are smaller in size and hold them in their online cache so they download faster, because they are smaller in file size and consequently bad quality

it only works on images and nothing else so save your money. It doesn't work on the real things that are slow to download, large program files or movies

This is nothing more that a caching / compression routine.

Think about this: If you are downloading files (.jpg's etc) that are already fully compressed, then unless you want massive quality reductions, this "technology" will not work very well.

"Typically for web browsing you will see a 2-5 times speed increase"
"However, ONSPEED will not accelerate certain files such as MP3, Mpeg, EXE and streaming video these files will pass through our servers without being accelerated"

- all I would suggest is that Your Mileage May Vary.

Its not "new" and many ISPs offer it now.
