What speed can my
subscribers expect with your service?
All of our
dial-up locations are filled with quality 56k
modem banks. Most are v.92 but UUNet is still
v.90. In addition, our PurSpeed web accelerator
increases that speed by 300%-800% depending on
the specific website. However, there are many
things that affect the actual speed any given
subscriber will receive.
subscriber's computer plays a role. The amount
of ram, the amount of cache, the processing
speed and the settings of their computer, all
affect the actual speed they will receive.
speed of their modem plays an important role. No
matter how fast our modems may be, the
subscriber is limited by the speed of their
modem. If they have an older slower modem, they
will experience slower speeds.
signal power through the telephone wiring in the
house and between the computer and the wall can
affect the actual speed. Old wiring or the use
of a splitter (where computer and phone share
the same line to the wall) can decrease the signal power and
slow the actual speed the subscriber will experience.
the quality of the telephone lines between the
subscriber's computer and our dial-up location
play a role in the speed the subscriber will
experience. If the lines are "dirty" or if the
Telephone Company has "muxed" (MUltipleXED) the
lines as they sometimes do in high growth areas,
speeds can be somewhat slower.
Most of these
things are out of our control or the control of
our network partners. But our call center can
and will help your subscribers with their
setting so they can get the highest speed
possible given their particular situation.
whatever standard speed your subscriber
receives, our PurSpeed web accelerator increases
that speed by 300%-800% depending on the
