Free FullSpeed Accelerator
FullSpeed is an Internet Accelerator for your dial-up internet connection. The main bottleneck to browsing the internet over dial-up is the slow speed of a modem connection.
The FullSpeed client is a program that you install on your computer. When it is running, the client will automatically compress text and images downloaded by your web browser for you. Compressed content is smaller content; therefore, your modem will download it faster and your web pages will load noticeably faster.
The actual speedup ratio varies, depending on how graphic-intensive the typical website you visit is. On average, with typical web browsing you can expect websites to come up between three and five times faster.Text compresses very well, and depending on the text in question it can download anywhere from one to 50 times faster. A typical speed increase for text on web pages is about 5-10 times faster.
FullSpeed accelerates image downloading too, but since these are already optimized files, they cannot compress as well as text. By attempting to optimize the image further, its compression ratio can increase. These compressed images may look a little grainier than the original ones but download noticeably faster! With FullSpeed’s default settings, images download an average of 2-3 times faster with only a slight cost in image clarity. You can adjust the speed/quality ratio to your preferences and retain the option to switch back to the original images.
Please note that the text and image speed increase only applies to files downloaded through a web browser (HTTP). FullSpeed does not affect files downloaded or uploaded by FTP, HTTPS, and file sharing programs or streaming audio/video.
FullSpeed also includes a basic pop-up killer, which prevents most types of popup ads. It also has the ability as to block 'Flash' advertising that floats on top of text articles.
What will not be accelerated?

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. FullSpeed compresses this data using a proprietary technology and sends it over your existing dial-up phone line. This compression process allows a smaller amount data to be sent -- sometimes more than five times less -- making the download time of your web pages and your online experience that much faster. As an added download time reducer, FullSpeed stores elements of the web sites you visit frequently, eliminating the need to re-download them every time you visit these sites.
