Tunneling technique

Toonel.net exploits a tunneling technique combined with data compression. It runs compressed data frames from toonel client to one of the toonel servers and then these are forwarded to the target host. Reducing the size of resources that are transferred between the server and the client makes more efficient use of the user's bandwidth.

Virtually any TCP traffic

HTTP, E-mail, FTP and other TCP/IP data traffic can be tunneled through Toonel.net thereby having the advantage of been compressed.

In addition to HTTP content compression toonel.net also contracts HTTP negotiation process by compressing http headers. Same advantage is valid for POP3, SMTP and IMAP protocols.

Open source components

We use lossless compression provided by JZlib library which is re-implementation of zlib in pure java.

We also run Squid proxy on our tunnel servers.

These two major components are open source projects and are secure and reliable.

Unlike other Internet boosters toonel.net does not use caching technology. We admit caching conserves the bandwidth but doesn't actually increase throughput. In addition we believe reserving content caching to browser makes toonel.net more secure service.

100% Java

There are number of client solutions which deliver the technique. All solutions are 100% Java code therefore this service can be used on any platform where Java Runtime Environment is installed including Symbian’s Personal Java.

What is it good for?
We recommend our solution for those who are paying a fee based on traffic consumption; have monthly download limit or using narrowband connection.

Please go to the downloads page and chose the client package which mostly suits your platform and just give it a try!


The HTTP standard offers support for content compression and most modern browsers and web servers support this part of the HTTP standard. Unfortunately content compression features are disabled in the majority of web and proxy servers therefore most of the web content consumed in uncompressed form.

In our opinion revolutionary methods in lossless compression are very unlikely nowadays. Proprietary compression methods might offer only a few percent improvements over conventional methods. Moreover if any novel technique emerges it most likely to affect conventional file archivers first rather than the web.
