WCNet uses the commercial SlipStream Accelerator
to speed up the loading of web pages. SlipStream SP uses
patented compression technology, combined with data caching
and network optimization, to reduce bandwidth requirements
and accelerate data transmission by up to 6X over any network.
Basically, SlipStream reduces the resolution of graphics.
This proprietary solution creates a more fulfilling online
experience, and satisfies the need for affordable speed.

With traditional dial-up methods, the
text and graphics that make up web pages get sent from the
server to you over your phone line. Because of the large
amount of data required to be sent, this process can be painfully
slow. SlipStream’s Web Accelerator compresses this data
using a proprietary technology, and sends it over your existing
dialup phone line. This compression process allows a smaller
amount of data to be sent – up to six times less – making
the download time of your web pages and your online experience
that much faster. As an added download time reducer, SlipStream’s
Web Accelerator stores elements of the web sites you visit
frequently, eliminating the need to re-download them every
time you visit these sites.

say that while you are there, you want to view the
latest roller coaster. The graphic of the roller coaster
you are interested in viewing will not be very clear.
If you still want to view the coaster, then you can
right click on the graphic and ask it to generate WITHOUT
accelerator, but you will need to wait for it.
