How does POVN's Accelerator product work?

For the most part, Internet traffic goes through the accelerator software, which runs in the background on your computer. The software then sends the page requests you make to proxy servers that perform sophisticated data compression. Bottom line is that you get a significant increase in your browsing speed.

 

What are advantages of the ad suppression?

The POVN Internet Accelerator service performs ad suppression: it recognizes and removes banner ads and other advertising from each page. This accelerates page loading, eliminates annoying distractions and protects your privacy from online advertisers.

 

How much faster will my connection be?

Connection and download speed depend on your modem speed, current phone line conditions, computer performance and configuration. It can also depend on the amount of data you download and on internet traffic as well. On average though, you should expect up to 10x faster browsing speed.

 

Can I use POVN's Accelerator on Macs?

YES! We are happy to offer an accelerator version just for Macs.

 

What are the system requirements?

Highspeed Accelerators work with any Internet connection where speed is a concern, including lower-speed wired and wireless broadband (<1 Mbps), satellite, wireless mobile data, dial-up, and 802.11 hotspot connections.
