Our featured guest for this hour of the Dr. Computer Radio Show is Robert Dyke, President of Montana Software, here to talk about their program SpeedTec, which speeds up your internet browsing. We've tried it here, and this program really works.
"Doctor Computer" -- Host of the nationally-syndicated Dr. Computer Radio Show, 10/30/99 ... http://www.drcomputer.net
(Note: Montana Software has never advertised on the Dr. Computer Radio Show)
SpeedTec is a neat little program that does what the author says it will ... Believe me, I've tried many of the optimizers but nothing to my knowledge matches this.
Simon Baillie -- software reviewer for SharewareJunkies.com ... email@example.com
SpeedTec turbo charges your modem for faster performance on the Internet ... A great feature is that it tailors your settings depending on which version Windows you use.
Nick Smith -- software reviewer for RocketDownload.com ... firstname.lastname@example.org
Unreal!!! I pride myself on being a skeptic. I just downloaded the trial version to try it out. To test it fairly, I noted the time it took to download it initially from your site. It took 3 mins 39 seconds. After installing and using it, I downloaded the same file (saving it under a different name) in only 1 min 38 seconds. You bet your bottom dollar I'll be registering this Product before the trial period ends.

Well many people said that you cant opimise modems but SpeedTec has proved
them wrong. Im using a 56k modem and the download speed was superb. Reach 10kb/s. Wow. Use Opera Internet Browser and SpeedTec and feel the power of your 56k modem or cable. Btw
this product may look simple but dont under estimate it!
Putera MohamadShahir ... firstname.lastname@example.org
I found your software on TuCows....went there looking for a new package as the one I had was old with no indication of updates soon....only selected those cows that were out in the pasture five at a time...then carefully read the review...went with SpeedTec and one other program....but dumped the other program even before fully using as it put some advertising contact info without my say so...it did say it was going to do so but gave me no option of declining...so dumped it less than four minutes after install......like what i saw and what i see with speedtec and it runs through the paces online quite well....see why the five cows....if there were any bulls around that five would multiply fast!

I have been using Internet Boost 99' by Bonzi Software for over a year and I
thought it was a good product, but when I did a comparison with your product
I received a 50% boost in connect speed, I use the Diamond Shotgun modem and
I am consistently connecting at 92 to 98 KBPS, when I did the speed test
with Internet Boost I was was getting 42 to 44KBPS on this double modem,
with yours I was connecting at approx. 79 to 81 KBPS, you have a great
product keep up the good work.

I live in a high-rise flat, in a "Millenium City" [United Kingdom], the
lines are slow. Your accelerator works, most of the others I've tried
Sam Ingram ... Sam35@hotpop.com
Your product, SpeedTec, is one helluva beast. If this program were any faster, I'll have to place a fire extinguisher nearby. I have one of those FreePC's and the damn thing was so slow, I used to fall asleep waiting for something to happen. I was on the verge of sending it back until I tried
SpeedTec and lo and behold, the machine is operating at 2 to 3 times faster
and has reduced my stress factor to zero..The people that worked on this
program should be candidates for sainthood or at least the Congressional
Medal of Freedom.
Tom J. DeFile ... firstname.lastname@example.org
The first thing I found useful, was the incredible speed increase in web browsing. I do a lot of
online shopping, and your product was just the thing I was dreaming about!
Thanks guys! You got some smart fellas working there ... your program is extremely useful and affordable!
Jack Wrightsman ... Skeeezicks@aol.com
Just got the cable modem installed, pressed optimize and my speed jumped from around from 250 to values of 650-800, so that is INCREDIBLE...I did not yet set the values you emailed me (then saved draft email and set the values you gave and behold...800-1000kb/s) This means I should stick to your values (See Directions) huh?...thanks a bunch! And what a change!!
Karim Popatia ... email@example.com
I tested my DSL throughput on the MSN Bandwidth Speed Test site and received an
average download speed of 629.7 and an upload speed of 77.2 before making
any changes. When I selected "Optimize" the average scores were 1159.1
and 142.0 -- an 84% improvement. Pretty good increase I would say!!!
Rusty Linker ... firstname.lastname@example.org
I know you can tweak the reg settings yourself, but this program has
presets that make it a whole lot easier. This program is worth 15 dollars!
It DID speed up my DSL connection, I noticed after I rebooted that
connections take an extremely short time to establish. So it's not just
the download time that it speeds up! :) I wouldn't go without this
Steven Woolard ... email@example.com
I learned about you from CNET.com. I have tried a lot of other so called accelerators and had about given up on there being anything to it. I can truly say you have increased my overall internet connection. I am very happy with the speed I have got out of this program. Definitely worth $15.
(Name Withheld) ... SwirvenKirven@aol.com
I have tested Speedtec on my ancient Laptop and it has worked wonders utilizing V90 modem and Windows 98. Will definitely buy the product. I have just downloaded a copy to test on my 1Ghz PIII desktop with Windows ME installed.
Will recommend the program to everyone interested in increasing modem and
Larry B. ... firstname.lastname@example.org
After tweaking the setting in SpeedTec a little over the weekend I am now experiencing a doubling of my data transfer rate. Before the changes my transfer rate in downloads was 2.4k/sec. Now with the changes I am transferring at 4.8k/sec - doubled my speed!
Thanks once again for all your help.
Bruce Langevin ... email@example.com
SpeedTec is the best speed tweak program out there, and easiest to learn and USE ... keep up the good work!
Steven Raven ... firstname.lastname@example.org
I love this program it is so cool making my dial up speed so fast but the
only thing is YOU should make the program make a good automatic setting the
optimize is good but i did have to change a few things so in your next
update please make a good one .
p.s I told all my friends about it and now they all use it.

Montanasoft's Accel SpeedTec is absolutely superb!! I tried other Internet Boosters but I only found Accel SpeedTec is superior to the others!

Getting some good download speeds now - around 7kb/sec compared to 3 or
Jeffrey Smith ... Jeff.A.Smith@btinternet.com
You have again improved my connection. When I got your product I had an AOL dial-up connection. It improved dramatically. I recently got another provider. This time cable. I used my cable connection for a couple of days like it was. Then I configured SpeedTec for my cable modem. It improved it again.
Mark Kirven ... email@example.com
I give it an A+ rating!
Martinya James ... firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm sorry I have to use this word::: SpeedTec is KickAss stuff!!!!!!!
Downloads skyrocketed from 4K to 4.7K on 56K......awesome!!!
Arvind ... email@example.com
Accel SpeedTec is incredible software!
Rachmat Wibowo ... firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for the program, a friend in Colorado, had sent it and said to try it. I really found a difference in my down loading speed, thank you again.
Kenneth Newline ... Sandpebbles1@cs.com
I don't often offer testimonials, but this time I just have to. Prior to downloading your free trial, I was averaging 18kbps download speed (I had not checked the upload speed). Now my download speed averages out 40 kbps. My speed has more than doubled, and it is very noticeable. Thank you. I will be purchasing your product before my trial period expires.
Eugene J. Pinder ... email@example.com
I am writing per your request to tell how I heard about SpeedTec. There was
an article in Smart Computing (PC TACTICS) called Supreme Internet
Connections. It recomended SpeedTec and EasyMTU. The Easy Mtu is freeware
but I prefered your ease of operation. I am telling my friends about your
program. It has cut my download times in half.
Jack Reeves ... firstname.lastname@example.org
SpeedTec has not only sped up my internet connection but has also reduced
the number of "Drop Outs." A great program and I thoroughly reccomend it.
Phill ... email@example.com
I have had SpeedTec for a couple of days and the results are fantastic! I
have a 56K dial-up and even during peek times, my downloading speed has
Dana C. Lehman ... DCEng1@hotmail.com
I have tried about 15 optimizer/accelerators, etc. This
is the only one that has really, really made a difference. I was getting
about a 13.20 load time and now I am getting an average of 11.31! It's a
keeper. I can see a huge difference with page loads.
Gina Russell ... firstname.lastname@example.org
... surfing in general is quicker and the connection seems much more stable, no AOL knockoffs.
Bernie O'Connor ... BOC61NJ@aol.com
I used the site http://computingcentral.msn.com/internet/speedtest.asp, as I have for some time, to get speed results. In the past I would get in the area
of 700 kbps results. After running SpeedTec's one step optimization I
got something like 900 to 1000 kbps. After reading the suggestion of
using a RWIN setting of 46720 for cable modems, and making that
adjustment, I'm now always over 1100 kbps. I'm a happy camper.
Mike Pearson ... email@example.com
So far I have doubled my bandwidth and if it keeps up for the thirty days even at peak times I am going to buy it.
Joshua Gosnell ... firstname.lastname@example.org
Should have done this a long time ago, I trailed the software for about a week that was enough to convince me to but it, fantastic, the surfing and downloads are at least 300% faster, RECOMMEND HIGHLY.
Stuart Thomas ... email@example.com
This program is amazing. For some reason the line at my house is
extrodinairily slow, but now I am back up to speed!
Thanks Montana Software,
David Kliewer ... firstname.lastname@example.org
I have dial-up and I like it that I don't get
disconnected all the time.The increase in speed is great.
Barbara Luther ... email@example.com
I am further impressed--1st I changed my settings as you recommended and have been playing on ebay for the past hour or so--(my nemisis as far as getting cut out) NOT once did I "hang" on either transmitting or receiving on the internet ++++++++ SpeedTec obviously made a big improvement in speeding up the transmissions---so much so --that as soon as I send this email--I will get into your site and pay for it
Lance dePlante ... firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your quick response, checking the answer (about RWin Settings) with an advanced high-tech friend , your answers are right and make a lot of sense. As I mentioned in my first e-mail I hear very positive comments from my friends, one of them is the good support, which by your quick and efficient response I agree. I will change over to SpeedTec
Romeo Hebert ... Romeo37@sympatico.ca
I am truly delighted at the performance gains after installing and using
I feel that I can now make the most of going online and all without the
dreaded wait or even better this fine software is real value for money.
Thanks once againfor a magnificent improvement to my browsing.
Ted Blanchflower ... email@example.com
The automatic feature worked great. I didn't have to mess with anything and it worked great. I have tried many. I am buying yours.
Sam Pooley ... firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi, I just want you to know that SpeedTec is one of the coolest software I've ever
seen - it increased download speed from 2 kb/sec to 4 kb/sec on a 33k modem. Thanks for creating such a cool software!
Arvind Maiya ... email@example.com
All I have to say is that your product is great, I've downloaded others acellerators but this one upgrade my modem 100% and I could say that it's even more!
cdmb ... firstname.lastname@example.org
I just wanted to write and thank you for your great software. I have tripled my download speed. I am actually using the Internet a lot more now. I wanted to let you know I found out about your program by doing a search. I was having a problem with slow connection speeds, so I ran a search on AOL, and Yahoo. I can't remember which one I found your software on, but of course I did find it, and I'm very pleased. Thank you for making a product that works, and isn't outrageous in price.
Dave Bulera ... LampDoc@aol.com
My son was playing an online game and noticed that one of his buddies with a 56k modem was getting really good response times, so he asked him about it and the other player said: "SpeedTec". We tried your free download and noticed improved performance with our cable modem also. So I decided to purchase it. Thanks!!

Now, my modem run 2X faster than before! I've tried other accelerator
program but they didn't gave me anything. So, I can tell to you that Accel
SpeedTec is works!
Anom Tejo Pratomo ... firstname.lastname@example.org
I would like to commend you on a brilliant prog. At first I thought that this was all hype, but on purchase I found I was wrong. Although I have not as yet gone beyond the recommend configuration, I thought I would just send you an e-mail as a bit of a perk. I will certainly recommend it to all my colleagues. Gratefully yours, FRW.

IT WORKS! It sped up my cable modem connection 8 fold!
John Cunningham ... email@example.com
As for speedtec, I tested all avallable -modem booster, tweakdun, accelerate2000, speedconnect & others, with their default settings at bandwith.com and SpeedTec came out on top! BUT for some reason I kept coming back to SpeedTec anyway ... so the fact it came out on top was a bonus! I am also happy with Rescue 911.
Ron McIsaac ... firstname.lastname@example.org
After trying other speed boosters for my computer I got discouraged and
deleted them all. I now have tried SpeedTec and have found that it has
increased my speed by 2x. I use a dial up modem and it is a wonderful
tool. Go, Go, SpeedTec
Bill Parrott ... email@example.com
I wanted to convey my appreciation for the quick and thorough response I got from Robert. Please clone him and send him to Idaho for immediate employment. [or give him a raise.]
Seriously, thanks a lot. Additionally - the software is great and immediately increased my download speed. Good product-fair price.
Mike Willett ... firstname.lastname@example.org
I have been telling everyone I know with a cable connection how great SpeedTec is. It's put my speed through the roof! It's a great utility. On the speed test on MSN.com, it placed "Off The Chart" after installing. WOW!
Chris Mitchell ... email@example.com
By the way, I've been very impressed with your program & pass the info
along to colleagues/family all the time. Thanks for designing something I don't need a learning curve to master!
Alicia ... firstname.lastname@example.org
I will keep this short and sweet. This is one of the most incredible pieces of software I have ever had the good fortune to come across in a long time. As a frequent internet user whose connect speed has never seen anything above a 33.6k connection, Speedtec is a godsend. I downloaded the 30 day trial and was so impressed with it that I immediatly ordered my registration number, and I had used it for 5 minutes!! Call me stupid for not using my 30 free days first, but I was just that impressed. Keep up the good work on a great product. I will be telling everyone I know about this program.
Neil Lovell ... email@example.com
I found out about your product in the november issue of Yahoo Internet Life in the web user section. They also mentioned another product by the name of tweakdun which did not even compare to your SpeedTec product.
Thanks again for a great product. I will pass the word around on your

It does make a very noticeable improvement in page-rendering times. With a dial-up connection that rarely approaches its theoretical maximum speed, that's a worthy feature! Works as advertised at a very fair price.
Lee Weissert ... firstname.lastname@example.org
Downloaded your Speedtec today and I'm Impressed! My connection is MUCH faster now. The thing is so easy to use, it's just about a one-click deal. WELL worth
the purchase price.
Ed B. ... email@example.com
This puppy really works! Makes the internet an enjoyable experience on a
dial-up modem! Stuck with 1950's-era house and neighborhood wiring, I had
despaired of getting acceptable internet connections and downloads, but
with a new Hayes Accura V-92 modem and SpeedTec I am now able to have an
internet experience at 45333 bps and decent download times (my previous
connection speed with a V-90 modem was 26400 bps).
Robert L. White ... firstname.lastname@example.org
I will be honest and tell you that I have tried a number of products (NetBoost
etc. etc.) but I don't think that any of them cater for the special
requirements of Windows98. Not one programme has ever suggested changing the
MaxMTU to 1500, your did and that was with one simple click!! That has made
a huge difference on my system. My download speed with my 56K-modem has never
gone above 4.2 KB/sec. I just downloaded a file at 4.94 KB/sec and my web
pages seem open up faster too.
I purchased your software in January, and let me say the results have been
awesome. I am consistently in the 6.0 kpbs range, up from 3.5-3.8. I
have informed several people in my car pool of the value of your program.
P.S. One other item, I now use the Opera 3.62 Web Browser and my download speeds average 25%-30% faster
than with either IE5 or Netscape 4.72. The combination of Opera and
SpeedTec have increased my speeds to the IDSL range (I have hit the 8-9 range).
Larry Hagy ... email@example.com
Your product is excellent! Before i got SpeedTec i downloaded a file at 2.3 KB/sec
and with speedtec i downloaded the same file at 3.8 KB/sec. Thanks for this great product.
John ... firstname.lastname@example.org
Dear Montana Software folks,
Your software is fantastic! My download problems appear to be a thing of
the past. For the first time all year, I have been able to log into the WWW
and instead of it taking a half hour or so for web pages and my e-mail
messages to completely appear on my screen, seconds after logging in, there
Thank you so much.
Stephany McCullough ... email@example.com
For months I've been fiddling with mtu , mss, etc. settings and reading all
the info on how 576 is THE magic number. I have had my settings at 576,536,
until I tried your program. (I have windows 98) All I can say is WOW!! At
1500.1460,etc I am downloading at 50-60 kps. So much for the "576 mentality"
out there. An absolutely STUNNING IMPROVMENT!! You folks have found the
right formula for me. Thank You.
PS_ your hosts editor (something new to me) is unbelievably simple to use and
again a stunning improvement to my system performance.
Pete Hjermstad ... PeteMSG@aol.com
Yall are the best!!!!!!!
I just wanted to write you guys and say that speedtec is awesome!!! I have
been having problems with my connection and loading and downloading pages on
the web and i have tried everything u could think of to fix it. However none
of it worked. I decided to go ahead and download your product and give it a
shot. It took no time at all and once i hit optimize it tweaked a few
settings and once i went back online it was moving at light speed compared to
how it was before. Thanks for a great product and i will tell everyone about
Greg ... Gpr1980@aol.com
I purchased speedtec a couple of days ago and it had amazing affect on my DSL connection. I mentioned it to a guy at work who downloaded and tested your software. I just received and email from him to all his other co-workers about what a great product it was. He was going to pay the 15 bucks for it and recommended that all his co-workers do the same. This is a great product that solved my speed problem with DSL. I am happy that it is spreading to others. Keep up the great work.
Michael Mitchell ... firstname.lastname@example.org
I have had you product for one day and I am absolutely amazed. It works
fantastic. I have tried 4 other programs and they do not hold a candle to
(Name Withheld) ... KWolfe6650@aol.com
Montana Software ... thanks for the prompt reply. I bought and installed SpeedTec.
When I used Optimize and the RWin setting you advised...... WOW! This is my first test but here are the results...
I ran 5 consecutive tests each time.. both before and after installing SpeedTec and using IE5. Using my normal Win98 settings I was getting an average of 516 Kbps. After SpeedTec did it's thing, my average went up to 2901 Kbps ! I've greatly improved my speed via cable modem (RoadRunner in Memphis).
Jack ... email@example.com
The service you offer (as with your product) is excellent. SpeedTec is the only accellerator program, in my opinion, that works efficiently. SpeedTec has been installed on my computer since mid May 2000 & is achieving fantastic speeds on the internet. It has not let me down. Installation of the upgrade you offer (version 2.1) took less than 5 minutes & SpeedTec is running as well as ever. Many thanks.....probably the best money I have spent & I do tell all my friends & colleagues.
Stewart S James ... firstname.lastname@example.org
I Just downloaded and installed SpeedTec and I can't believe the difference! I have a DSL connection and before I installed the program the download speed was around 60 K. All I did was click the "optimize" button and then the "OK" button and rebooted. When I tested again, the reading was 1511.1 kbps and 185.2 K bytes/sec! It tripled the speed! I can download a 6 meg file in about 30 to 40 sec! Just wanted you to know that I never thought it would make THAT much difference. Great product!
Brian Parkman ... email@example.com
I saw your software for Speedtec 2.1 in "Yahoo Internet Life Magazine." I
thought what the heck and to give it a try. There is a lot of "net speed"
type software out there and they really don't seem do anything.
Speedtec on the other hand was absolutely amazing! I am a cable modem user who was usually topping out around 600kbps to 800kbps and rarely ever just below 1.5mbps
(T-1) at times.
After I installed your trial version for Speedtec and did another test, it
was well over T-2 (2.5mbps). It still is T-2 all the time now and even off
their chart at times.
I immediately went to your site to purchase the software (unlock code).
Also, you have a very nice convenient order process there. The sale was done
securely and the code emailed back within literally seconds. Speedtec is a
MUST for any internet user out there. :) Awesome!: * * * * *
Chad Hummel ... CHUMMEL@mn.rr.com
SpeedTec more than doubled my DSL internet connection. I was getting around 550 kbps now am cruising at 1200 kpbs. WOW!

SpeedTec worked where others didn't. I really noticed the difference with SpeedTec, where with all the other main accelerators i didn't notice any difference at all.
Simon Stephens ... firstname.lastname@example.org
My downloads times have improved dramatically since I installed your SpeedTec recently. From a best of about 2.0k/s, my downloads have improved to a consistent 3.6k/s and upwards. Virtually double. So thanks for that.
Rick Dale ... email@example.com

I use to download at a little over 2kb/s. Now I am up to nearly 6kb/s (Yes really
an improvement!) Thanks for the program! =)
Mike ... Mmmradar@aol.com
I would like to let you know that Speedtec really lives up
to its claim of accelerating web surfing ... I do notice accelerated downloading of
pages. I have tried other so called web accelerating programs but yours
is tops in my list. And thank you for your prompt response to my question. This is what I would call excellent after-sales service which not many companies conducting business over the net can
match. It is indeed a pleasure buying your program.
Wong Soon Yuen ... email@example.com
Just a letter to let you all know just how much I appreciate SpeedTec. Actually, I purchased this quite sometime back, and I've got so used to the the speed on my computer that I took this as standard. It's only today that I used my friend's machine (which doesn't have SpeedTec) and I realized that his machine practically crawls! But he insisted that his speed was quite standard! Compared to his machine, my line's practically a T1! Boy, am I grateful to SpeedTec! I've already started recommending SpeedTec to all my friends/relatives etc., and sneer at computers not having them!
Belated thanks to you all!
R L Ramakrishnan ... firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your courteous and professional attention. It is refreshing to
encounter a bussiness that obviously takes customer concerns to heart. I am
pleased with the "tweaking" and it has made a noticeable difference in the
speed of my internet connections. This is so important to those of us that
dont have acess to digital/fiber optic technology do to the poor
infrastructer in our geographic area.
Paul London ... email@example.com
We have an older model computer and this speeds up web pages being changed and our download times as well. SpeedTec is a wonderful service to help out the people that need a little extra boost to get things running right.
Robert & Michelle Whitlow ... firstname.lastname@example.org
Just to put SpeedTec to the test I downloaded the same file from the same
location before and after installing SpeedTec. Before SpeedTec, the
download took almost 14 minutes. After installing SpeedTec, the same file
downloaded in 5 minutes. I could not believe the difference! And, web
pages load noticeably much faster. I am always trying to tweak my computer
to be faster and better and to this end I have tried numerous "download
accelerators", "internet connection optimizers", etc. etc. etc. I can
honestly say that SpeedTec is the ONLY one that made any significant
difference, and it made that difference IN SPADES!!
