The data that you're downloading, so it doesn't actually speed up the connection at all. It probably works quite well, although whether that makes it worth the money is a matter for you to decide.

The product was reviewed in Internet Advisor Issue 61, and you can see some comment here on their forum: click here

My gut instinct is, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is."

This seems to indicate that browsing speed is slightly faster as images are compressed but ZIP MP3 and other compressed files won't benefit at all from compression.

If you're on a slow connection, I would suggest that using Opera or Mozilla Firebird instead of Internet Explorer would make a far greater difference to you browsing experience, without costing you a penny.
