With GWI’s new Dial-up Booster, dial-up users can experience the Internet at faster dial-up speeds than they ever have before. GWI Dial-up Booster revolutionizes the way you use the Internet and allows you to surf up to 5 times faster, for only $3.95 more per month.
GWI Dial-up Booster speeds up your Internet experience using your existing dial-up phone line and modem – you do not need to add any extra equipment. It is easy to install, runs seamlessly and doesn’t alter any of your existing software. You can also control the amount of compression vs. speed gain yourself. GWI Dial-up Booster allows you to surf at near DSL speeds, giving you a high-speed Internet solution with the convenience and low-cost of dial-up.
What Gets Boosted?
GWI Dial-up Booster compresses the following elements of web pages and email in order to send the information to your computer faster:
- Graphics including JPEG and GIF images
- E-mail – SMTP and POP (including file attachments!)
What Will Not Be Boosted?
Although GWI Dial-up Booster is able to compress many different types of online data, there are a few which cannot be accelerated:
- Streaming media, audio and video files
- Secure pages, such as those used for online banking and credit card forms
Other value-added features of the GWI Dial-up Booster include:
- Pop-Up Blocker – block annoying pop-up advertisements while surfing!
- Banner-Ad Blocking – Stop the ads, and surf faster!
- Integrated Diagnostic Support Tool
How Does it Work?
With traditional dial-up methods, the text and graphics that make up web pages get sent from the server to you over your phone line. Because of the large amount of data required to be sent, this process can be painfully slow. GWI Dial-up Booster compresses this data using a proprietary technology, and sends it over your existing dialup phone line. This compression process allows a smaller amount data to be sent – up to five times less – making the download time of your web pages and your online experience that much faster. As an added download time reducer, GWI Dial-up Booster stores elements of the web sites you visit frequently eliminating the need to re-download them every time you visit these sites.
