SpeedBit Is Still Speeding (Downloads) Along

speedbit.jpgAbout two years ago, I wrote about the growing number of download speed boosters, among them an Israeli company called SpeedBit. Well the 10-year-old Speedbit has been speeding along ever since, and last month saw its SpeedBit Video Accelerator pass the 20 million installs-mark. The company, which makes a handful of products, claims that it now delivers about 8 million files daily and has about 18.5 million active monthly users. I’d actually forgotten about SpeedBit, as I kept upgrading to faster connections so that I never had to think about download snarls. But generally speaking, bandwidth (and good connectivity) remains a problem, so folks are still turning to this service because they, too, want smooth video streams with little or no buffering stops.
