The Benefits of Plix Accelerator and How it Works

What is the Plix Accelerator?
Plix Accelerator speeds up your Internet experience, by up to seven times, using your existing dial-up phone line and modem. You do not require any extra equipment. Plix Accelerator allows you to surf at near DSL speed, making Plix Accelerator the high-speed Internet solution with the convenience of dialup. It is easy to install, runs seamlessly and doesn’t alter any of your existing software. You can also control the amount of compression vs. speed gain yourself.

What gets accelerated?
Plix Accelerator compresses the following elements of web pages in order to send the information to your computer faster:

  • Web pages – HTML markup and JavaScript
  • Graphics including JPEG and GIF images
  • Text
  • Email on the web

What will not be accelerated?
Although Plix Accelerator is able to compress many different types of online data, there are a few which cannot be accelerated:

  • Streaming media, audio and video files
  • Secure pages, such as those used for online banking and credit card forms
  • Files and attachments such as music or digital photos
How does it work?
With traditional dial-up methods, the text and graphics that make up web pages get sent from the server to you over your phone line. Because of the large amount of data required to be sent, this process can be painfully slow. Plix Accelerator compresses this data using a proprietary technology, and sends it over your existing dial-up phone line. This compression process allows a smaller amount data to be sent – up to five times less – making the download time of your web pages and your online experience that much faster. As an added download time reducer, Plix Accelerator stores elements of the web sites you visit frequently eliminating the need to re-download them every time you visit these sites.
