It's one of the fastest Web Accelerators on the internet!
If you surf the Internet using a dial-up connection, you are painfully aware of how
slow Web pages load. Propel Accelerator is a subscription-based service that works
with your existing Internet Service Provider (ISP) dial-up connection, allowing you
to dramatically increase your surfing speed. Pages that previously took
almost 30 sec. to load, can now be viewed in less than 7 sec., on average,
and sometimes even faster.
Propel Accelerator is the next best thing to DSL, at a fraction of the price. Unlike
costly and limited-availability broadband solutions, Propel Accelerator:
- Requires NO new hardware.
- Is easy to install -- a few clicks will download it to your PC!
- Works seamlessly with your existing software.
Propel Accelerator is designed to provide maximum acceleration for the Web sites you visit regularly.
So, the more you surf, the faster your favorite pages will load!
Specifically, Propel Accelerator speeds up the delivery of Web pages four ways:
- Compression. Propel Accelerator delivers text and graphics more efficiently, using a proprietary compression technology that significantly reduces the size of Web pages and page elements sent to your browser
- Caching. Propel Accelerator improves upon your browser's caching ability. Propel intelligently retains and reuses Web pages and page elements that have previously been sent to your PC. That's why the longer Propel Accelerator is in use on your PC, the faster your Web pages will load.
- Persistent Connections. Propel Accelerator uses proprietary techniques to
carefully manage and optimize the communication between your modem and our network
of servers through a persistent connection. This eliminates the time wasted re-establishing and closing TCP/IP connections.
- Optional Content Filtering. Propel Accelerator lets you block unsolicited
content, such as pop-up ads and in page ads, which contributes to long wait times.
With Propel Accelerator, Web pages load an average of 3 to 5 times faster. The more regularly you visit specific Web sites, the better the performance you will receive.
Here is an example of tests we ran with and without Propel Accelerator.
