Much of the things are pretty useful for dial up users . Also Broadband users can have a look at this if they have download limits on their usage .
toonel.net is an experiment in a technique for conserving network bandwidth. If you are paying a fee based on the amount of data you transfer (e.g. 3G/GPRS/DSL/CDMA) and have monthly download limit, or if you have narrowband connection (e.g. dialup modem) then you are most likely to appreciate the service toonel.net offers. There are number of toonel.net client application packages. All solutions are 100% Java based and therefore this service can be used on any platform with an installed Java Runtime Environment, including mobile phones.

| What is ONSPEED? |
ONSPEED is a quick and easy software download that significantly increases the speed of any Internet connection, anywhere in the world.
Using a unique and patented compression technology, ONSPEED increases Dial-up speeds by up to 10 times; Broadband by up to 5 times and Mobile connections (via GPRS/3G) by up to 8 times.
How does ONSPEED work ?
As you cannot physically change the speed of your Internet connection, ONSPEED uses a technology called Content Sensitive Compression ('CSC') to individually compress each element of a web page or email using various compression algorithms based on a patent approved proprietary technology. The end result is that your web pages and emails (PC only) load and download faster using your existing Internet connection.
When your web browser requests a web page, the ONSPEED software redirects that request to the ONSPEED compression servers. They take the respective web page content, compress it and send it back down to the ONSPEED software which decompresses it and sends it to the browser requesting the information.
ONSPEED offers a unique, patented technology called “Advanced Imaging”, enabling you to receive fully viewable and instantly usable web pages, while maintaining the maximum quality of images. Advanced Imaging delivers all images on a page simultaneously. You continue to browse web pages while images are being progressively loaded. Image quality progressively improves until images have reached lossless quality.
ONSPEED’s dedicated algorithms compress the following elements:
Photo-realistic images (e.g. Compressed and uncompressed JPEG, PNG, Compressed and uncompressed GIF, and BMP)
Line art and drawings (e.g. GIF, BMP)
Animated objects (GIF)
Office documents (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
If a web page or email contains information that is not covered by a dedicated algorithm, ONSPEED will apply a generic compression algorithm to that data element.
Ofcourse it comes at a hefty price of $50-60 a year and that too per machine .
Skweezer is a freeware Web portal for users of mobile devices such as personal digital assistants, Palm OS-based devices, Pocket PCs, smartphones, and XHTML-enabled mobile phones. Skweezer consists of a proxy-based microbrowser that reformats and compresses Web content in a manner that reduces the target page's file size and makes the downloaded content easier to view on a small screen. Skweezer also includes an e-mail client, RSS reader, and address book. Skweezer was developed by Greenlight Wireless Corporation and initially released in 2001.
