    NO such software works they are just crap and instead of speeding your internet they slow down your computer

  • Scott Macmillan

    NO NO NO.It is all dependant on what comes through your pipe.

  • Vivek Yadav

    no it doesn' laptops net speed increased by a few bytes per second and the whole system slowed down by a lot...

    There are many other free alternative software to "boost" internet speed, but as mentioned by others here, it will only help the packet situation going out and coming in, nothing to do with the bandwidth your service provider allows you for your priced package. After Windows XP, the operating system does a good job at configuring the settings for good internet speeds. Unless either you, someone else, or in extremely rare cases viruses or malware changes these settings, you will see absolutely no difference in speed as far as the internet. You would see more of an improved loading speed by upgrading or overclocking you processor and/or gpu and memory before these programs show any signs of faster internet speeds. However, upgrading and/or overclocking has nothing to do with internet speeds, just how quickly your computer loads the browsers and page content. This is another "snake oil" as said before to make "magical" claims and take your money like a gypsy. Beware of these programs as it can damage your settings and give worse performance or even trouble connecting to the internet. If you want tips for better computer speeds and performance, just do a search here and there are plenty of advice to go by, including mine.

    i don't think it makes any difference because if your paying for 3 Mbps then you can get 6 Mbps.

    Maybe it works in a scenario where your hard drive, ram or CPU is loaded or your browser is slow but if you are talking about increasing your bandwidth then the answer is straight away "NO" , its because you cannot increase your internet speed from the one that your ISP is providing you.

  • salim benhouhou

    i don't think so if you are subscribed with your ISP to a 10 MB package .
    these softwares won't make it better than 10 MB .
    sometimes you have problems with your system that is limiting your internet speed and these softwares fixes these problems so if you are not having these problems then these softwares is not for you .

  • Jamie Merlau

    Speed isn't only measured in bandwidth provided by your ISP; optimization of packet requests leads to less overhead and fragmentation, boosting what you do with your bandwidth. However, I would imagine servers would need to be set up to handle these requests properly or else you could face a detrimental increase.

    Any questions about piracy is probably best solved with a simple Google search.

    Probably it can fix some connection problems. Or optimise the internet speed, or the browser speed for navigation (Andvanced System Care has a similar option, and a lot of other windows 'optimiser'). But, let's suppose you have a connection of 16 Mbits/s (which means a max download speed of 2 MB/s). This means your internet connection might get optimised to download with 2 MB/s , but not with a higher speed than you have payed for!

  • ha14

    well it can help fixing your internet problems and make them optimized but faster than your contract this i doubt it.
