Nope. Scams every one. It;s the "put the spinny thing on your tailpipe, or pour this crud in your tank for 50 bucks" of the internet. If they worked they would already be implemented. The systems the internet uses are OLD. As such they are pretty optimized for what they are. Without fundamental changes to internet structure, which you cannot implement from your end, you're going to get what you get.

the most effective method I've found is to complain to my service provider. this results in them fixing it or showing that the problem is pebkac, in which case I do.

more than a few of my slow internet experiences have turned out to be wifi interference or clogged up software. It might be worth exploring these possibilities.

Yup, online game uses UDP packets anyways. These are basically the most simplistic type of packet.... you shoot them off and they go to destination. There's no handshaking or ECC.
