Low Bandwidth

What is the “Low Bandwidth” check box for?

The “Low Bandwidth” check box (Also Known As AKO/DKO Lite) is a lean, light, and fast way to access AKO/DKO’s most popular services. AKO/DKO Lite features links to IM, mail, discussion threads, news headlines, and self-service communities. With its image-free design and concise HTML, AKO/DKO Lite provides immense performance benefits to low-bandwidth users, and at all times, full AKO/DKO is only a click away.

It is possible to switch between AKO and AKO Lite under the Home drop down menu by choosing the Low Bandwidth Mode option.
