Re: What speeds do you get with your dial-up?
Noo... when you load pages, they are usually cached on the computer (the images) for faster loading later on. Those accelerators just downgrade the quality of images on a website, and personally I wouldn't pay for 'em.
Try the test again, and get the server closest to you, if you are in the US or Canada, there's loads of them in states & provinces...
It doesn't load every page like broadband, but CF and other forums, since all of the avatars and images for the forum are cached, it just needs to load the text and it is relatively quick. Same with other websites that I frequently visit. Images and flash are the problems.
