editor's review





NETSpeedBoost is a small Windows application whose purpose is to help you enhance your dial-up, LAN, cable, DSL or satellite connection.

Runs on old operating systems

This utility proves to be quite useful especially if you are the owner of an old operating system, such as Microsoft Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000 and XP; otherwise you cannot run the tool without using the Windows Program Compatibility Troubleshooter.

User interface

NETSpeedBoost runs only in full screen so there’s no way that you can resize its main window. You can only make use of a ‘Minimize’ button in case you want to get back to your desktop.

Each time you press a dedicated parameter the tool plays a preset sound notification. On the downside, they are no settings included in the feature package for helping you turn off the preset sound.

Optimization capabilities

NETSpeedBoost gives you the possibility to boost your Internet connection by simply selecting the connection type from a list and activating the optimization process. As stated in the introduction, you can enhance dial-up, LAN, cable, DSL or satellite connections.

Advanced users may venture into enabling the export mode in order to tweak TCP/IP settings on their own. The AOL booster feature is designed specifically for helping you maximize the data transfer speed between your computer and Internet.

Last but not least, you can make use of the Stay Online mode in order to make sure your Internet connection is not down due to a long time of inactivity.

Bottom line

All things considered, if you are looking for a straightforward software solution for boosting your Internet connection and have an old operating system on your computer, then this may the perfect application for you. The intuitive feature pack makes it suitable for all types of users, regardless of their experience level.
