Editors' reviewThe 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.
Internet Turbo 2003 optimizes your Internet connection in real time in order to prevent fragmentation of data transfers, and it boosts your data transfer rates by 200 percent to 300 percent. You can choose manual or automatic configuration for your settings and all dial-up, LAN, ISDN, cable, xDSL connections are supported, as are all software and hardware adapters. You can easily restore your default Windows settings, and a Registry backup utility is included. Internet Turbo 2003 also features a connected-forever option that prevents you from being disconnected by your ISP, and a comprehensive help file with definitions of various terms and settings is included. It accelerates any Internet-related software such as browser, e-mail, download manager, iMesh, Kazaa, LingoWare, AOL, CompuServe, RealAudio, RealVideo, and ICQ.
