Its all just a data stream going through your modem, and you cant make it any faster than it is, simple as that really
This is a bit old now but you have a misconception as to how it speeds up your Kazaa downloads. It does work. By checking for more sources on a customized timer you can make better use of your available bandwidth and download a file more quickly. So, Sharemonkey Speedup CAN in fact reduce the time it takes to get a file.
Remember we are talking P2P here which means the number of hosts supplying the file AND the bandwidth they have controls how fast you will receive anything. Of course your bandwidth comes into play if the remote hosts offer more than you can handle. There is no claim to speed up anything else and it doesn't make any false claims.
