Editors' Review

+
The clumsy interface distinguishes Internet Turbo 2003 from other Internet connection accelerators. The program does not indicate the values of optimized settings, and the help doesn't help very much. In fact, Internet Turbo actively discourages you from experimenting with settings by needing to reboot your computer after applying changes. The automatic optimization offers three modes for different hardware configurations. If you connect via dial-up, the connection feature that keeps your ISP from bumping you offline may be worth your while. The 30-day trial is more than enough to see whether the optimizer really helps.

"Really works!"

July 23, 2010  |  By rtobias71

 |  Version: Internet Turbo 2003 5.4

Pros

I connect at very low dsl speed to the net, making it hard to download large movie files from P2P. This program really boosted my download speeds from P2p program and my firefox goes so much faster!

Cons

Really increases internet speed! Incredible....

"Internet Turbo is a No Go"

November 17, 2009  |  By Stumpy_Joe

 |  Version: Internet Turbo 2003 5.4

Pros

Not Much-there are many many many other programs to BOOST Dial-up Speed AND they are FREE to TRY that perform better-That being Said:Do you have a Phone-TV-the same company-has DSL or Cable the cost is nominal and the Speed increase Is Phoenominal-

Cons

So you still use dialup?-SKIP this program-no speed increase-Pages don't load faster-No upload/download increase either-some of the options are not fuctioning(They Want $)In truth my friends a faster dial up speed is by and large an oxy-moron anyway

Summary

The toal lack of any benificial speed increase is all I found with Internet TURBO 2003 5.4t-For a product with such limited Tabs-the disabled functions-This is a POOR choice. A trustworthy barrometer the consumer can use (Tech minded or novice)is to look at 2 things-1)most importantly,are the majority of the features/functions of the software useable/functioning-Any Software/Program with most funtions disabled prevents YOU from making an Informed Desicion of any kind.If It says "Free-To-Try" IT SHOULD be just that- .Ask yourself these basic questions-Why would a company NOT let you test-drive It's product-What are they trying to hide-Why do I have to "Pay-to-Try"??? In Well over a Decade of working with Computers I find that with Software(Free-free to try-trialware).the top performers are generally liked by both the Editors AND the user.Always look at "Both"-Limitations or optional functions usually only have the more ADVANCED setting disabled.These things show a companys confidence in their software.Look for software offering a fully functioning funtioning FREE Version(usually a BASIC Version.TRY THAT-NEVER BUY any software Upfront-Try the basic-s will offer a TRIAL of the FULL/PRO version but keep in mind the average PC user doesnt need a "PRO"-" version of any Software as It's typically geared to a more Advanced end user Anyway.So remember Try Free Version if you like It-Try the Pro/Full next-ALWAYS FREE or FREE TO TRY.Happy Computing To All............Stumpy Joe

"Worked Like a Charm"

November 04, 2009  |  By PeterHurley

 |  Version: Internet Turbo 2003 5.4

Pros

Easy to use and worked.

Cons

None.....unless having to restart our computer after each change is a con!! It worked, There are no cons here.

Summary

I checked my speed with a cNet found speed checker and I started off with 206 kbps upload and 420kbps download. After tinkering with Internet Turbo and trying the various automated changes, I ended up with 190 up and 625 down. Each setting, including baseline, was performed several times to get a solid mean and good numbers.

Try it for yourself. Super easy. No glithes, etc.... Worth the effort.

"NO BOOST! NOT EVEN A PAT ON THE BOTTOM!"

September 07, 2005  |  By Ted135

 |  Version: Internet Turbo 2003 5.4

Cons

iNTERNET Turbo did NOT boost my dial-up at all. It actually DECREASED my internet speed! It makes it worse that a ad keeps coming up every time you open the program!!! Deserves -5 Stars! I reccomend using TZ Connection Booster. Enough said.

"Hooah"

July 30, 2005  |  By wdosg

 |  Version: Internet Turbo 2003 5.4

Pros

Finally this is a product that does what it says it increases ya internet on the spot, I when up 50kb/s and it lets me keep a steady internet stream.

No spyware or adware spotted as yet.

Cons

There are many settings to chose from so its actually trial and error to maxamize output from it. That Might take a while, and u have to use a internet speed tester here: dslreports.com/stest

For those consern with computer usage and load, it automatically takes up about 1-6% depending on the machine.

Its also recommended to leave it to start up with the computer which will slow that down a bit also.

But if u really want a NOTICABLE change get it. Warning only for people who have the need for speed. If u a person who like to surf and do other things this is not for u, its too fast so u will forget the other things.
