What is HyperSpeed Dialup?
If you surf the Internet using a dial-up connection,
you are painfully aware of how slow web pages
load. Well, now you can surf the web 2 to 5
times faster with HyperSpeed Dialup,
the fastest dial-up web accelerator available
anywhere, and one of the only local high speed
dialup services in Northern Virginia!
We tested all the major dialup accelerators
on the market and chose the fastest and most
stable product we could find to incorporate
into our Sylvan service. No more special DSL
equipment and phone lines, no more long-term
contracts with phone and cable companies - just
faster Internet right through your modem.
How Does It Work?
HyperSpeed Dialup 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! A small piece
of software, the HyperSpeed Client,
installs on your computer and talks to our network
of HyperSpeed Servers.
Specifically, HyperSpeed Dialup
speeds up the delivery of Web pages four
HyperSpeed Dialup 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.
HyperSpeed Dialup improves upon your
browser's caching ability. HyperSpeed
Dialup intelligently retains and reuses
Web pages and page elements that have previously
been sent to your PC. That's why the longer
HyperSpeed Dialup is in use on your
PC, the faster your Web pages will load.
HyperSpeed Dialup 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.
HyperSpeed Dialup lets you block
unsolicited content, such as pop-up ads and
in page ads, which contribute to long wait
