Use Zoom Together with Speedify for Your Family Get-Together This Thanksgiving
This year, 2020, has been a game changer for almost every aspect of our lives. We have learned how to work remotely, how to learn remotely and ultimately how to talk to our loved ones at a distance, over the Internet. And this is just the beginning of this next normal.
The core of all remote activities is the video conferencing solution. And Zoom is doing something great this Thanksgiving: removing the 40-minute time limit for free accounts.
Nicely done, @zoom_us! #streamergency #ZoomTogether

So be prepared to get your family together on that Zoom split screen interface. There's one more thing you should take into account: Internet issues. These can easily transform your #ZoomTogether video conference into a full blown #Streamergency. So make sure you use Speedify as well (FREE on Thanksgiving Day!) - this way you'll be able to use all of your available Internet connections at once and avoid problems while catching up with your loved ones during Thanksgiving.
Causes for Zoom Conference Network Related Errors
While you're on a Zoom video conference, you may encounter issues like low quality video, stuttering, buffering and even Zoom disconnects. You've seen these happen throughout the year, when remote working and learning. Just picture what will happen on Nov 26, 2020, on Thanksgiving Day, when everybody will #ZoomTogether with their family, eating up available bandwidth...
This is actually the main reason why Zoom calls might not be that smooth during the holidays. And alongside available bandwidth not being enough for a crisp Zoom video call, there might also be:
- temporary ISP infrastructure issues
- home networking equipment problems
- signal strength and quality for wireless connections within your home.
But what can you do about that?
Don't Spend Family Time on Troubleshooting Zoom Conference Issues. Use Speedify to Avoid Those in the First Place.
Time is the most valuable asset nowadays. You should maximize the time you spend with your loved ones on Zoom instead of researching and fixing connectivity issues. Ultimately it's your choice - here's a comprehensive guide on troubleshooting connection issues.
You can save time and avoid these type of streaming connectivity issues in the first place by using all of your available connections at once. You should have at least two connections available: your home Internet and your cellular data. If you use those at the same time, you can get more bandwidth for that #ZoomTogether call. You need a channel bonding solution to make that work. You need to use Speedify and get a faster, more reliable and secure Internet connectivity.
Thanksgiving on #ZoomTogether with Your Family: Don't Forget to Use Speedify
We recently tested Zoom on a laptop and on a smartphone while running Speedify, simulating bad Internet conditions. The results showed that Speedify was able to keep the average Zoom video call bandwidth on both devices in good range around the target bandwidth. And this happened both in situations where the connections were good and when one of them went bad.
By using channel bonding technology, Speedify unlocks the true potential of your devices, allowing them to use all available Internet connections at once, instead of just switching between them. On your smartphone – it’s the Wi-Fi and cellular data that can be bonded. On a computer, there’s more flexibility about the number and type of connections.
Speedify also routes data when something happens to one of your connections. When you stumble upon a bad Wi-Fi hotspot, or your connection suddenly goes out, you will stay connected. Speedify intelligently and automatically reroutes your data through the other available connection(s) until you are connected again to both networks. Best of all, you don’t notice anything because Speedify works seamlessly.
The beauty of it is that Speedify does more than just manage your Internet connections. It is also a fast bonding VPN. It encrypts all of the data you send and receive from your device. This helps keep your private information and conversations secure from digital eavesdroppers and cyber thieves.
Speedify will not guarantee the best Thanksgiving dinner, whether it's turkey, yams and any other specialty. What Speedify can guarantee is that you'll have the best #ZoomTogether call with no interruptions (streamergencies) whatsoever!
