XWeb Satellite Phone Internet Access and Web Browsing

XGate Premium Service

Fast satellite web browsing with compression

With XWeb you will browse the Internet up to 10x faster over satellite phones. On average XWeb compresses pages by a factor of 3-5x which gives a much improved speed advantage. GMN is able to reduce the time it takes to download typical web images by a factor of up to 10x.

The fast web compression technology reduces typical pictures down to 5% of their original size, dramatically reducing download times. In addition to compressing all the images, XWeb also compresses all text streams, removes obnoxious pop-ads, and removes all backgrounds and animations. Faster download times mean greater savings for you.

It is easy to add XWeb to your XGate Satellite Email service.

NEW! Use XWeb over Optimizer with your Iridium 9555 or Extreme - no USB drivers, WiFi hotspot option and Firewall protection too!
