There's no such thing as a download accelerator.

How do you mean download a web-page? Usually file->save will do that for you..

There is no such thing as a download accelerator, if anything, it slows you down cause it is constantly downloading every link on a page.

Download Acelerater = Download Manager. A relative said the ISP's that say they are 5 x faster due to having a download acelerater are indeed faster at surfing the internet. He said they get the pages faster. Thanks for replying. Bump for more info.

AFAIK, Some of that 5x is from a combination of a download manager and a large cache so that pages are stored locally rather than being downloaded each time a page is visited.

Why not just get a Download Manager and pay less for an ISP??

What does AFAIK mean??

Thank you for the replies. Bump for more info.

ISP Acceleration vs Download Manager

the ISP style web acceleration(AOL/Earthlink) basically compresses images further than normal for the file type. smaller images = faster loads on browsers, images are the largest parts of most webpages.

a download manager will allow you to download large-ish files faster .... IF your download speed is faster than the upload speed of the server from which you are trying to retrieve that file. also, that server has to allow multiple connections from the same ip, as that's what most download managers that speed the download do, they establish about 8-20 threads to the file server and segment the file.
