It's no secret that all users dream about a faster Internet connection, so every single software solution that sees daylight and claims it could do that is at least worth a shot.
Throttle is one of the names that may impress you, promising to optimize the operating system so that your modem will perform faster and bring you a boost in speed when online.
The application has been designed to be used by all types of users, be they absolute beginners or not, so the interface is quite basic with no complicated options.
There are only three settings available, so a few clicks should get the job done. You're thus prompted to pick the operating system you're using, choose the modem type and the speed setting.
There are multiple modem types available, including generic ones, so don't worry if you don't know for sure which kind of modem you own. There are even specific settings for cable modem, ISDN modem, satellite modem or Local Area Connection, so you won't get yourself in trouble when using Throttle.
In case you still find it hard to get use to, have a look in the help file. The developer has included a detailed help manual to guide you all the time, so beginners should definitely have a look in there too.
The good thing about Throttle is the fact that it remains a simple solution all the time. Just three clicks are enough to optimize the settings and let the app check memory allocation to modem, optimize DNS lookup, modify TTL settings, increase HTTP request limit and change network bandwidth allowance.
Overall, Throttle is a tool to try if you want a faster Internet connection. And in case it proves to be efficient for you too, the reasonable price will most likely place the app on your shopping list as well.
