editor's review





Pointstone Internet Accelerator promises to boost the performance of your Internet connection, tweaking and optimizing it in order to reach the highest speed it is capable of.

It manages to do so by identifying the parameters that are holding it back from achieving a decent speed, as well as by reducing page load times when surfing the Internet.

Pointstone Internet Accelerator was tailored to meet the interests of beginners and professionals alike, boasting both out-of-the-box configurations, as well as more advanced settings for users with knowledge of networking.

Equipped with an automatic connection detector, the application identifies the sort of network configuration you’re using and allows you start a one-click optimization operation.

The repair process includes a quick analysis of the current network settings, followed by an attempt to tweak the detected configuration in order to output a better speed. It also optimizes the connection for Internet delays, setting it to avoid slow sessions caused by nonstandard Internet hosts.

More complex scenarios are made available via the advanced settings section, where you can enable the detection of Black Hole items, MTU discovery and support for Selective ACK.

You can also customize the TCP Receive Window Size to a custom value for enhancing TCP transactions, as well as to change the number of allowed simultaneous HTTP connections, which improves the overall browsing speed.

Any optimization process requires a restart in order to complete and for the changes to take effect, while restoring the connection to its initial state is also possible.

Overall, Pointstone Internet Accelerator seems to be worth a shot especially that is sports so many advanced settings which could eventually pay off if tweaked right.
