I recently bought a new LG VX4400 phone and switched to Verizon.
With the data cable, I have been able to connect to Verizons QNC
Internet access
service. I can browse with my laptop at a "blazing" 14400 baud.
I heard that you can use this software from Venturi to vastly improve
speeds as it compresses the data on Verizons server and leaves out
graphics detail.
I went to the venturi website for verizon and downloaded the software.
http://www.venturiwireless.com/tech_support/VerizonWireless.html (the
version for express network not CDDP)
The software doesnt seem to do anything. In fact there is almost no
documentation on how this works with the QNC service.
Does anyone have more detail on how the Venturi software works with
Verizons QNC internet access? Thanks

My software which came with the Mobile Office
software contained Venturi and my problem was
being able to prevent it from installing. I am
now used to it and it is not a problem.All websites
do not however go through the Venturi server. If
you see the icon in the task tray one should be able
to click on it and set it up, i.e., speed vs quality,
automatic..etc.. luck

You are using QNC right? Why on earth would you expect QNC to work with
software for the express network?
You are using the direct calling/dialing system (qnc = CDPD) with software
for packet switched networks (1x, express, National Access).

Depending on your plan/location/needs you may already have and be able to
use the higher speed 1x stuff. Got a paper bill? If so, look for active
additional services and see if National Access is listed as one. If so, it's
already on your plan.
One good thing about holidays, is that it is free to play with it today.

From my understanding, Venturi is just some form of compression/proxy
service. If it just operates at the IP level it very well could work for
both QNC and 1X (in fact, when I installed the mobile office kit on my
laptop I believe it worked for both).

As far as I know, the high speed 1x will work for both (high and fallback to
low), and when calling verizon with #777, but the low-speed direct to the
end ISP will not allow venturi to work dialing the ISP directly, you have
to connect to verizons network.

I may have confused things by what was written elsewhere in the OP's
message, he said he used QNC to call his ISP directly, and couldn't get
venturi to work.

At any rate, you can only use venturi when you use the #777 to connect. Not
when dialing direct to the ISP.

The other part of that note was to let the OP (and any lurkers know) they
may already have (what is termed here, but not officially NA-MOU), check
your bill for additional options and see if National Access is listed as an
already active OPTION. That phone is 1x capable, and if his plan supports
it, he already has it active and it is a whole lot faster than 14.4.

Yeah, I totally agree he should be using 1x (Express Network) if at all
possible. If you are in a Verizon native area it should be possible! I use
it all the time and as has been reiterated a hundred times here, it only
costs you minutes!

I concur with your statement about Venturi working with both QNC and 1X
Express Network. I also concur that it would not work when "dialing" in to
another ISP over your cell phone (not quite sure what this is called other
than circuit switched...).

Venturi relies on a server component that is sitting on Verizon's data
network. This is why it does not work when you dial another ISP.
