This is for long-suffering users of Northwestel’s appalling DSL service in Iqaluit.
You’re all familiar with it’s declining speeds and frequent unexplained network interruptions, which now occur every five minutes or so, cutting you off from the internet for periods ranging from a few seconds to many hours. And you’re familiar with how all this interrupts the downloading of big files, such as essential operating system upgrades and new software.
Written and distributed by a small firm in Bulgaria, it resumes downloads automatically after they fail due to network interruptions.
Its most recent version works with Mac OS X 10.2 later. But there’s also a version that works with the most recent flavours of Windows, should you be of that persuasion.
It’s worth every penny of its $25 USD shareware fee. Take that, Northwestel.
