FasterMac.net, a division of IMG Sponsor Other World Computing, today introduced TurboMac, an accelerated unlimited dialup service with local 56K access throughout the United States specifically for Mac users. Using the specialized software, you'll be able surf faster thanks to on-the-fly data caching and data compression/decompression. TurboMac provides accelerated Web page display and email downloading. This is most visible when loading Web pages, which are able to fully display up to six-and-a-half times faster compared to standard, non-accelerated dialup services.

Here's more from the official press release:

A special introductory rate of $120 for the first year ($10 per month) is being offered to the first 500 customers who sign up for FasterMac.net's new TurboMac service. Standard pricing starts at $139.95 for a yearly subscription (less than $11.67 per month), $37.95 quarterly ($12.65 per month) and $13.95 month-to-month.

"The technology TurboMac uses really gives it a significant performance advantage over non-accelerated dialup services," said Larry O'Connor, president of OWC. "Whether you're comparing normal web browsing or even the time it takes to download your e-mails, TurboMac speeds things up. And when you consider the $120 special rate, there's never going to be a better time for those first 500 TurboMac customers to switch ISPs and start saving with our FasterMac.net service today."

All FasterMac.net TurboMac accounts include unlimited nationwide local dialup, five free email addresses (username@fastermac.net), 10 Megabytes (MB) of web hosting space, custom SPAM and virus filtering and more. Standard FasterMac.net dialup services are also available for less than $8.00 per month.

"Not only is the TurboMac accelerated dialup much faster than standard dialup, but the costs of the regular (non-introductory special) plans are less than half of what many non-accelerated dialup services charge," O'Connor said. "We've been in the Internet Service Provider (ISP) business for nearly seven years now, and it's a real pleasure to offer Internet services to our fellow Mac-users who deserve quality service for a reasonable cost. There's no reason to pay more than $20 a month for dialup service when you can get a whole lot more, a whole lot faster, for less money from FasterMac.net."

TurboMac accelerated dialup through FasterMac.net requires Apple OS 10.2.8 or later. For more information on support and configuration please see the FasterMac.net web site, linked below.
