Re: Possible but unlikely

Thats pretty tight...

15 bucks a month for these guys to put up their "best effort" in "trying" to speed up packets that can't travel any faster. LOL.

The whole issue is routing, not "speeding up packets". Less routers to pass through and a more direct path to the destination is what they are claiming, which would work...but its not that simple. Dealing with network congestion and programming the router to intelligently decide which is the best path for each UDP packet can be a complicated matter. It's not impossible...just not feasible I would imagine. The net is too convoluted to implement this in such a way as to fulfill their claims. I will be quite curious to see how well they pull this off, if at all.
