eSpeed on Demand is one of the new feature for temporary boosting your internet speed. Yes, you can simply boost your line to either 1MB or 2MB (higher in the future) anytime with a single click on the Telbru web login account. This will only last for one hour and you will need to log in again to boost it.
(Note: The link appear to be broken, probably something wrong at Telbru. xP)
Just remember that this is not a free service because you have to pay for a rate per hour depending on how many times you boost your speed. Of course, you have to apply before you can use it. If you wonder how this work before you decide to subscribe it. Well, it’s very easy to use, very easy. Log in to the website (like picture below), enter your phone number (your eSpeed line) and the password given by Telbru.

Here’s the screen shows some of the information from your account and your Hua Wei/Alcatel modem. The available boosts information is below and shows either 2MB or 3MB speed option. Click one of them (I click 3MB) and you will see the terms and conditions. My advice is you read it before you used.
After you click accept button your line will temporary boost to 3MB for one hour. You can verify your speed through Brunet speed test and test any download.
Here’s the test results using Steam downloading my Half Life 2 games together with Free Download Manager downloading AVG Free Edition program.
It’s a real deal. Although I can’t say for the performance on the website I visit. Sometimes it does lag for a moment and hell fast. I did tried Team Fortress 2 game and RF Online. TF2 work pretty well on the server I joined and my ping time was really good low. However, not for RF Online game. I still get kick out often and lost connections even the server population is low. Not to mention the gameplay was same as usual, nothing much improved. There could be the connection issue in the DNS configuration I believe.
Anyway, eSpeed on Demand service is just a feature to help you dealing with large downloading files. But to me, it makes no different putting my PC idle doing the download for all days. Even if it slows, I am not paying any extra on it. Don’t talk about my PC power usage, mine is gaming machine but my motherboard has the ability to tweak all the hardware performance down, which means lesses power usage in normal operation for downloading stuffs using torrent. Kekeke…
Notes: It took a while for Telbru announcing their new eSpeed on Demands service. My post has been on hold almost at least coming five months now waiting for the right time post it. You might ask why. Well, it simple. As long it was not officially announce by Telbru, I have no single rights to reveal their upcoming services. This is how I feel about it.
Nonetheless, the information I provided is based on the beta test. Any updated or changes may different from what the current screenshots provide above.
