What will be accelerated?

The Boreal Web Accelerator will not change your modem's connect speed, but it will significantly speed up web page access by compressing text and images. It can also be configured to speed up outgoing email (SMTP) and FTP file transfers (in passive mode).

The Boreal Web Accelerator will NOT speed up secure (https) transactions, incoming (POP3) mail, non-FTP file downloads such as music and file-sharing applications (ex. Napster, BitTorrent, Kazaa, Gnutella, etc.), online gaming or web streaming of audio or video media.
