Turbo Internet is an utility that can significantly accelerate your Internet connection, and features a load of useful tools as well.

Generally, providers will allow only a preset rate. Turbo Internet simulates low Internet activity so that the server will allow you to use more bandwith. You might gain up to 3K/sec with a 56K modem.

Turbo Internet also uses acceleration technologies from the PC platform, such as pre-fetching: Pre-fetching is a unique feature of Turbo Internet that will scan for links on a webpage and that will download every linked webpage. If an image is already placed in Turbo Internet's cache and if the more...

Hey, this does work well on slower Macs! (I have a G3 266 mhz.) I can see the faster download time for everything, esprcially usung a RAM disk for the IE cache. Great freeware.

Turbo Internet has worked very well in increasing the connection speed. Typically, on my 56k modem, speed is around 7k/sec sometimes it jumps to 8k/sec. So far it seems to work well, downloading pages and files a lot faster.

While Turbo Internet did run on my Beige G3 under 9.1, and while it did serve to reconnect me if I became inadvertently disconnected for whatever reason, I did not use it enough to determine if or how much my connection speeds were increased. I ceased using it because it created files that were 'rescued' from my hard drive after every use. The folks who wrote the program could not explain why these files were being created, and said they had not heard of them previously. not wanting something unexplained happening after every use of Turbo Internet, I stopped using it. It also messed with the graphics associated with MacAmp.

When I first installed the software [OS X 10.2.8 on G4 Gigabit Ethernet] it kept telling me I was already connected to the internet, though I was not.

I later figured out the problem, you have to disable built in ethernet under Network Port Configurations first. When I did that it worked just fine.

Download speeds flactuate though. I am sure fiddling about with it a bit more will give me a more stable speed. 7 to 8k/sec download speed is not bad though.

Great work guys, just try and improve speed stability.

I think Turbo Interner is a pure fake ware. Slows down my connection instead of speeding it up.

Does not appear to work on my G# Powerbook using 9.2.1. it merely launches Remote Access. It does not show a dialogue with two flashiarrows or indicate an incrfease in download speed, as the read me says it will.
It also does not launch apps. after connecting as the read me states. In short, it does nothing.

The home page says it is now free because of all the criticism for selling a non functioning application. I would also criticize the giving away of a non functioning application as well.

OK...I have been using this software from the beginning. I can report that it does provide a slight boost to surfing. I also use a program named Rambunctious for a ramdisk - on that disk I set my Explorer Cache. These two programs make my frequently visted pages load like I was on a high speed connection and are worth the download.
