How does it work?

With traditional dial-up methods, the text and graphics that make up web pages get sent from the server to you over your phone line. Because of the large amount of data required to be sent, this process can be painfully slow. PRW TurboWeb’s Accelerator compresses this data using a proprietary technology, and sends it over your existing dialup phone line. This compression process allows a smaller amount of data to be sent – up to six times less – making the download time of your web pages and your online experience that much faster. As an added download time reducer, PRW TurboWeb’s Accelerator stores elements of the web sites you visit frequently, eliminating the need to re-download them every time you visit these sites.

What gets accelerated?

To achieve the fastest web and email acceleration available, proprietary lossless compression is applied to text, html, xml, javascript and style sheets. Proprietary image compression is applied to gif images, jpeg images and Flash content. PRW TurboWeb also accelerates email traffic, and is compatible with any POP3/SMTP client, including Outlook Express, Eudora and Netscape Mail. PRW TurboWeb Accelerator will not currently accelerate file downloads such as music files, or streaming video or audio media nor does it accelerate encrypted (https) sites..

PRW TurboWeb Accelerator also offers additional value-added services to speeding up your web and email usage:

•Pop-Up Blocker - block annoying pop-up advertisements while surfing! PRW TurboWeb Accelerator can prevent pop-up windows and floating flash advertisements from appearing while you browse the Internet.
