    Yup thats right! Your normal dial-up connection can have broadband speed.

    Accroding to www.onspeed.com you can boost your 56K connection to have like a broadband speed. By compressing images, text etc... but apparently it won't affect on files that already compressed like, downloading .zip files, media, video/audio streaming, but the comapny is hardly working on it to support them on their future releases.

    .NET magazine have tested the software and pleased with the results. They benchmarked a 56K connection at http://bandwidthplace.com/speedtest/ (without onspeed) and gain 50KBPs of bandwidth. They again benchmarked the connection, but this time with "onspeed on" and set the compression settings to maximum, and the result, they gain 246KBPs of bandwidth. That's why .NET magazine rated the software with 5 stars.

    The software will also work on broadband, but they said (onspeed) because broadband already uses high bandwidth so increase may not as high as dial-up.

    My old dial-up ISP now has a "turbo" option for $4/month that is "supposed" to triple your dialup speed. But if its like theri standard service, I dont think you will be online much. Mainly end up tring to dial in over and over and over..
