MegaSpeed also speeds up
surfing by giving you the option of
eliminating annoying pop-up ads! These floating advertisements are all
over the web, taking up your system resources and forcing you to spend
time downloading and closing them. With MegaSpeed - no more! Pop-up
blocking is an automatic service from MAIN MegaSpeed (though you will be able
to disable it if you choose).
However, a web accelerator like MegaSpeed (which won't speed up FILE downloading, only web-content) is only as good as the system and connection you get on your phone line. If your computer has the resources available ("enough horses on standby") to decompress the content that MegaSpeed is compressing (which is how it speeds things up), your computer may be able to handle the added load that MegaSpeed is delivering. However, older machines with lower resource limits may not benefit.
The connection needs to be stable also, to get performance gains. If you have any noise on the lines such as static, clicks or humming, the line may not be able to deliver the increased content that is trying to come through. Your modem (the device that the computer uses to transfer information over the phone line) also is a critical link in getting more web pages and email through it.
