Throttle modifies your modem to increase Internet speed. No modifications to your hardware are made and all adjustments and settings are done in an easy to use interface that a child could use. Most other modem enhancers promise that they work while you notice no difference at all in internet speed. Throttle on the other hand has been tried and tested and proven to work. Whether you use a 14.4/28.8/33.6/56k modem, cable modem, or dsl modem, Throttle will boost your internet connection speed. Notice also that Throttle will modify your modem settings to handle those annoying disconnections and hangups so they happen less often.
