download acelerators won't work well on dialup or slow internet service. if u need faster downloads, i would recommend wireless broadband.

Blame it on bad reception. my phone doesnt have edge either. The maximum i shud get is 48 kbs, the last test set it at 27kbs. Download speeds are 6-9 kbs on good days but 3Kbs and less on at other times. It also works better when my phone is fully charged.

I use GetRight as my download manager.
It's not really much of an accelerator but it does "speed up" you download in a way because it can download from more than one source at the same time.

It does help when you are using TSTT's dial-up. Although sometimes my connection is SO BAD at time that even that doesn't help.

As for other wireless boradband ISPs besides the 3 phone companies, there are Greendot (www.mail.tt) and Roofnet (www.roofnettt.com).

I used to use DAP until they started bundling a whole bunch of spyware.
I never really did try FlashGet, but GetRight is free and is easy on PC resources.

when you connect at 42.6kb/s that is bits per second, when you download it is in bytes, 8 bits make up a bite, therefore with a connection of 42.6kb/s your max download speed is 42.6/8 = 5.325 kbytes per second.

Hope that clears it up.
