Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is WebRunner
A: WebRunner is a product that accelerates your Web surfing experience using your existing phone jack and modem with NO additional equipment and NO waiting! It's the high-speed surfing solution with the convenience of dial-up.

Q: How fast is WebRunner?
A: The exact amount of acceleration can vary, but with WebRunner you will notice a significantly faster experience when you visit Web sites, read your e-mail on the Web, and perform many other Web-based activities up to 6 times faster!

Q: How does WebRunner work?
A: Before the text and graphics that make up Web pages get sent to you over your phone line, WebRunner compresses them using a proprietary technology. Less data is sent so the download of pages and your surfing experience are that much faster! In addition, WebRunner stores elements of the Web sites you visit frequently so you do not have to re-download them every time you visit these sites.

A: WebRunner works with many popular browsers. The only requirement is that the browser must be able to support a proxy server.
