Thread: Internet Booster

  1. #1
    My friend mentioned he got this Internet booster that made his download speed increase from 125MB/ps to around 400MB/ps. Well i asked if it was legal, and he said it was legal to use, but he wasnt sure if it was allowed by the ISP. So i was wondering if anybody knew NTLs stand on Internet boosters...

    How much does a 125MB connection cost? $300/month?

    well i know there are ways of uncapping your modem , but thats defintley not legal , and i havent herd of a program to download faster , basiclly what these programs do its download a webpage and make it avaible faster so if you type google.com it will retrive the webpage from your hard drive instead of there server then ask the server for any updates

    Then why does a site, i was reading have a quote from a guy who recons he was getting 900kb/s on a 1meg connection? Ill try and find the site again...

    Also, it did mention that some of these things save the webpage to cache so it loads up faster. But it wasnt what this program did. Anyway, i just wanted to know what NTL had to say about these, and if they allowed them. I dont want my net cut off.

    why not just call and ask? oh and if you do dont' call from ur house or anythign that they may have on their database lol if u do that then they'll keep a closer watch on you, use like a payphone or ur friends or something.
