    Free internet?

    i read this, and it does indeed look to good to be true, free internet for 300million people !

    not only that, its better than 56k, adsl AND broadband..

    yes im thinking the same as you, if its too good to be true it usualy is, but its free so what u got to loose eh? my mate has sworn to me its not a scam and it really works, ive read the site and i dont know how it works, so if somebody figures it out spread the love

    its free NOW becuase it luanches in october, so they'll start charging then i reckon, but how it works im yet to discover.

    Speed up a broadband connection to 2MB for FREE.
    Save money by disconnecting broadband and using JUICE for FREE.
    Make your Internet experience more pleasurable.
    HAHAHA Guaranteed to provide a minimum of 2MB how exactly they going to do that? HMM?, thats taking a 512Kb connection (notice small b for BIT!) and turn it into a 2MB (large B for Byte)

    They can't even get terminology right!!!. how can you get HUGE fold increase on a modem to make it broadband speed. Any of you who knows what compression technology is capable of knows that there is no way in the world that this works.

    Remember that 56k is already using compression, 33.6k is the theoretical maximum that a telephone line can transmit, to achieve this compression both ends of the modems need to achieve the increase to 56k....

    so 512kb/33.6kb = 15.2 Multiple increase.

    So can this be achieved with compression?, well the simple answer is NO way.

    Maybe if we sent the english language down the phone line you might MIGHT be able to get that sort of compression. I think its pretty easy to get the english language down to 14% of its original size without trying from memory from the Uni course, main reason is that you have redundacy in the language.

    However when you are transfering binary data, where is the redundancy in that?, well simple answer is there isn't a great deal you can do, before you tend to lose data.

    I wouldn't touch this site with a barge pole as entering me e-mail sounds to me like i've just signed myself up for a huge quantity of spam

    Actually a 56k modem downloads data digitally, and uploads it in analogue. The upload can be 33.6k, the download 56k. The 56k modem protocols rely on the exchange supporting digital...

    So it's not compression as such.

    Anyway, that site looks like a load of crap... shame really.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    You will never see another dead, blank or irrelevant page ever again and if you do, we will pay you £500 GBP*.
    Means they'll redirect you to their search pages all the time....

    Apparently they'll start charging after 80 million customers.... thats a heck of a lot - but I don't believe a word of it.

    Notive how the site is run by an "affiliate" - i.e. someone who can claim whatever they want, do whatever they whant, and the parent company is not legally responsible...

    Whole thing looks like a scam tbh - stear well clear - the affiliate sign up sounds just like a pyramid scheme.
    Now go away before I taunt you a second time.

    Sorry still living and understanding modems V.42 which does what i describe.
    Not everyone has V.90 and digital signalling and clean lines for true 56kb setup. Either way Kez, my point is how you turn a 56k modem into a 512kb broadband connection is still valid

    I imagine it would have to utilise the DAC on the BT line

    the DAC being a digital to analogue convertor

    not to be confused with DACS
