What Causes Packet Loss?
Internet traffic is structured into small chunks of data called packets. Packet loss occurs when one or more of these packets fail to reach their destination. This usually happens when the network is overly congested, but can also be a result of using fluctuating wireless connections.
If packets are lost, they will eventually be detected and resent, but not before resulting in a major bottleneck. This happens because of the default rules governing the Internet transmission and control protocol: the packets that did successfully get through to their destination cannot be delivered before the missing packets arrive. So, everything will be slowed everything down until the situation is resolved.
Speedify in action
Speedify makes easy work of complex under-the-hood technology with simple set-it-and-forget controls that “just work.” Programs and services run as they normally would, but benefit from increased security as well as the speed and redundancy of multiple Internet connections.
