0 stars award from exploits a tunneling technique combined with data compression. It runs compressed data frames from the client to the tunnel server and then these are forwarded to the target host. Reducing the size of resources that are transferred between a tunnel server and client makes more efficient use of the user's bandwidth

HTTP, E-mail, FTP and other data traffic can be tunneled through thereby having the advantage of been compressed.

In addition to HTTP content compression also contracts HTTP negotiation process by compressing http headers. Same advantage is valid for POP3, SMTP and IMAP protocols. does not compress resources by reducing the resource quality, thus all resources are delivered to user with the original quality. We use lossless compression provided by JZlib library which is re-implementation of zlib in pure java. We also run Squid proxy on our tunnel servers. These two major components are open source projects and are secure and reliable.

Unlike other Internet boosters does not use caching technology. We admit caching conserves the bandwidth but doesn't actually increase throughput. In addition we believe reserving content caching to browser makes more secure service.

We recommend our solution for those who are paying a fee based on traffic consumption; have monthly download limit or using narrowband connection.

There are number of client solutions which deliver the technique. All solutions are 100% Java code therefore this service can be used on any platform where Java Runtime Environment is installed including Symbian’s Personal Java.

We are currently testing this service and therefore it is free so far. Please go to the home page and chose the client package which mostly suits your platform and please just give it a try!

What's New:
better compression
image down-sampling
ability to use 'parent' (chained) proxy server. client search tags
