    How does NetZero HiSpeed 3G work?

    Data Compression and Image Optimization - Before the text and graphics that make up Web pages get sent to you over your phone line, NetZero HiSpeed 3G compresses them using a proprietary technology. Less data is sent so your surfing experience is much faster!
    Memory Enhancement - NetZero HiSpeed 3G uses caching technology to store elements of frequently visited Web sites so they load faster on future visits. So in addition to an immediate boost, your surfing will get even faster as you continue to use NetZero HiSpeed 3G.
    Continuous Optimization - NetZero HiSpeed 3G continuously optimizes the communication between your system's modem and our network while you are online. That means that it is always working to shorten the amount of time it takes to connect you to the sites you visit.
    Pop-Up Blocking - NetZero HiSpeed 3G features a pop-up blocker, which means that you no longer have to wait for annoying pop-up ads to load.


    Will NetZero HiSpeed 3G speed up everything I do on the Web?
    NetZero HiSpeed 3G accelerates certain text and graphics on Web pages. With NetZero HiSpeed 3G you will notice a broadband-like surfing experience when you visit Web sites, read your Email on the Web, and perform many other Web-based activities. NetZero HiSpeed 3G does not currently accelerate file downloads such as music files, streaming media or non-Web-based email programs such as Outlook Express.

    USE A SEARCH ENGINE NEXT TIME. It'll do you good.
