Why should I use PeoplePC connection software?
PeoplePC's free dial-up software makes connecting to the Internet simple and reliable. Our built-in Smart Dialer automatically chooses the best available dial-up number for you each time you connect, which increases the speed and reliability of your dial-up connections.* It also includes Accelerator technology, which turbo-charges your Web browser so you can surf up to 7 times faster than regular dial-up.** It will even speed up most email too. We strongly recommend all PeoplePC members use our connection software.

Is the connection software free?
Yes. All our dial-up members can download and install the software free of charge.

Should I choose more than one Internet access number when I set up the software?
Yes. You should add all the available phone numbers that are local free calls for you. Our Smart Dialer will automatically choose the best number for you each time you connect; having more numbers to choose from should result in more consistently fast and reliable connections. To select all the numbers in a city, check the "Select All" box during setup.

Important: If you are unsure if a number is toll-free for you, please contact your phone company before you add it. Otherwise, you may incur phone company charges in addition to your PeoplePC Dial-Up subscription cost.*

Our connection software is super-simple to use. Just double-click the PeoplePC icon on your desktop to open the software and then click the Connect button. We’ll take care of the rest.

Why should I use PeoplePC Fine-Tune?
Use it to help restore your computer's lost speed and performance! Simply using your PC for normal, everyday tasks inevitably decreases its speed and performance over time. Why? Fragmented files, invalid shortcuts, unused programs, registry problems, and more—it all adds up to a slower, more frustrating computer experience. On top of that, when you remove spyware from your PC, non-malicious but corrupted and fragmented files are left behind. Our Fine-Tune software helps you easily resolve all these issues, optimize your computer's performance and improve its speed. Use Fine-Tune regularly as part of your ongoing PC maintenance, and run it after each instance of spyware removal. It can help you enjoy your computer as much as you did when you first got it.
