Prevents your internet connection from being dropped due to inactivity

A review of Connection Keeper by Felix Cheng

You might not believe it, but there are still millions of people on this planet which still use dialup Internet connections. For those people, there is Connection Keeper.

Connection Keeper is a freeware application which simulates activity so that your dialup connection isn't interrupted. Many ISPs track usage so that if you're not using the connection, your connection will be dropped.

This can be frustrating to users who prefer to maintain their connections. Thankfully, Connection Keeper is a program which is still maintained to keep an eye on that.

You can use Connection Keeper to manage the times and dates that your Internet connection should remain active.
