They don't use the 'net for much, so even the extra $10/month for DSL isn't really worth it for them. Most of the services I found are around the $9.95/month ballpark. My question is this: Most of them offer "accelerated" service for a few dollars more. Am I wrong, or is this just the pre-cacheing software accelerators that you can download for free anywhere? If so, I can set that up for them right? Or do the ISP's have some proprietary software that works better? I haven't been on dial-up in years, so I'm not sure what the "standard" is at this point. I appreciate any help in advance. Thanks. Promote this thread!

Working for an ISP in Atlantic canada, the Accelerator we use is a Proxy that degrades images to make them smaller to download getting faster download speeds. Not bad if it's free only our's is an extra 5.95 a month Dok's Blog
The thing of it is, I don't do for high end FPs type games. I don't think I've played one since Quake. The first one. But 128 will probably hold me for a while on things like "Sims 2" and "Civilization IV". The W message board ZimBoard ©2001-2016 Brothers Zim
