What is Slipstream Accelerator?
Slipstream is the latest technology in dial-up compression and acceleration (also known as Hi-speed dialup or broadband dialup). Slipstream Accelerator is a client / server compression technology that works with your existing connection, allowing you to dramatically increase your web surfing and email speed by 6X or more!  Pages that previously took 30 seconds to load, can now be viewed in less than 7 seconds with an average dial-up modem connection!

Slipstream Accelerator is the next best thing to DSL or cable, at a fraction of the price. Unlike costly and limited-availability broadband solutions, Slipstream Accelerator is:
 1-Available anywhere there is a normal telephone line
 2-Requires NO new hardware (works with your existing modem)
 3-Easy to use - install a small software client on your PC (Windows or MAC OS X)
 4-Great low cost alternative to DSL or Cable
 5-An easy upgrade to your existing account.
How does it work?
Slipstream Accelerator 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.

Slipstream Accelerator speeds up the delivery of Web pages three ways:
  • Compression. Slipstream Accelerator 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.
  • Caching. Slipstream Accelerator improves upon your browser's caching ability. Slipstream intelligently retains and reuses Web pages and page elements that have previously been sent to your PC. That's why the longer Slipstream Accelerator is in use on your PC, the faster your Web pages will load.
  • Persistent Connections. Slipstream Accelerator 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.
How fast is it?

With Slipstream Accelerator, Web pages load an average of 3 to 5 times faster. The more regularly you visit specific Web sites, the better the performance you will receive.

Here is an example of tests we ran with and without Slipstream Accelerator.

Popular Web Sites *Before Slipstream *With Slipstream How much Faster
with Slipstream?
Ebay 11.65 seconds 2.97 seconds 3.92 X faster!
USA Today 32.43 seconds 3.77 seconds 8.60 X faster! 30.56 seconds 5.01 seconds 6.10 X faster! 11.74 seconds 3.04 seconds 3.86 X faster!
CNN 11.68 seconds 2.26 seconds 5.17 X faster!
*Average time calculated based on loading the home page. First time visit to a Web page loads on average 2 times faster. Subsequent visits to the page load, on average, 3 times faster.
