Telstra accelerates wireless browsing

Telstra has announced that Speedwise Technologies' Accellence will be deployed over Telstra's mobile networks to provide accelerated wireless Internet browsing.

The system, to be installed over the carrier's GSM (global system for mobile communications), CDMA (code division multiple access) and GPRS (general packet radio service) networks, uses compression technology to provide faster Internet access for customers using laptops, handheld devices and other HTML-enabled devices.

David Kaye, Telstra's product strategy manager, said, "Customers can expect to download data at speeds almost twice as fast of currently available."

The Speedwise solution involves the installation of a server between the Internet and the wireless access network.

Background HTTP data is compressed when passing through the server, reducing the number of data packets sent over the network.

It also uses algorithms to display text and links prior to images, ensuring users can navigate between sites rather than waiting for large images to download before the required information is received.

Users can also determine the amount of compression required by configuring their browser to the desired graphic acceleration rate.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
