I read about it in the newspaper a couple of months ago but it was a poor article that made it look like a scam, you know one of those boost your internet speed now for free kinda deals but reading it it looked reasonable enough but i never got round to reading more about it. So i would be interested as well but i might try it anyway.

OnSpeed does nothing but compress the data you download from the internet. It doesn't work for pictures or images or anything that isn't plain text (so MP3s, AVIs, videos, etc are all out).

In a nutshell, its absolutely pointless and aimed at the gullible IMO. If a dial-up connection was capable of handling broadband connections, then it would be there by now and we wouldn't need new hardware.

Yeah that was the primary reason it initially said scam to me, but i had heard of similar software that actually did work but it was for whole networks not the internet in general.
