Extensive testing has shown that enabling time stamping when using a DirecPC-based connection does slightly increase download speed (about 5% on average). However, it also causes significant problems with certain websites. In particular, interactive sites and secure sites often will not load completely or will not load at all with time stamping enabled. In addition, enabling time stamping with these systems will cause large email attachments to fail to download. For these reasons, it is recommended that time stamping not be used on DirecPC, Earthlink, AOL+ and Pegasus Express satellite broadband systems.
