Okay, so, sadly, I had to meet in my life Fair Use Policy limits, or rather Fear Use Policy, if you asks me. So I often looked into ways to save data because computers tend to thinks there's plenty available out of their box, while this isn't clearly the case everywhere, especially in mobile but sadly in broadband as well. What a nightmare.
So, I wonder if anyone have asked yet about Proxies. There was a time where ISPs gave compression proxies to speed up their network and avoid bigger bills on your and on their side. Nice. But I also know you have to search for it or ask it, except in cases where ISPs put this in place on your behalf and without your approval, but that happens rarely.
Basically, a compression proxy handles all your web traffic to find images and so on. At each time you load a page, you asks your ISP proxy to load it for you. Then, the proxy can choose to either deliver you a compressed copy of the web page, with a bit uglier images, but using less data, or to borrow it directly from the website if the proxy doesn't have any copy yet, because no other users except you visited the website lately. The benefit for ISP is that, if many people visits the same website, the proxy just deliver what's on its hard disk, avoiding the ISP to pay Internet traffic. On your side, the benefit is that you can load more web pages just with a quality cost.
Have anybody yet asked their ISP about this kind of compression proxies? Something to share about it?
