How to Combine Connections on iMac for Faster, More Reliable Internet
Working from home on your iMac? With the recent events, many are in a similar situation. This leads to overcrowding the residential networks you're part of, which means slower Internet that is more susceptible to disconnects. So how can you avoid this?
What if you would combine connections on iMac? And we're not talking about switching between them - Wi-Fi, Ethernet, cellular dongle, etc. We're suggesting combining as in using all your available connections simultaneously on your iMac. This way, your iMac will be able to harness both the download and upload bandwidth of your connections. But is this possible?
The title of this article already spoiled our surprise. If you're wondering how to combine Internet connections on Mac, it's simple: you need a software channel bonding / link aggregation solution that will unlock the potential of your iMac. You need Speedify.
How to Find the Connections to Combine on Your iMac
As long as you have access to multiple connections, why not use them? Think about it:
- your home Internet is wired Ethernet or Wi-Fi
- you can tether your cell phone to your iMac for a cellular connection
- you can also connect to a public Wi-Fi nearby - from a restaurant or from your city.
You may have other options as well. Just take a moment to think of any possibility you can get online.
Bottom linw, when you combine all you available connections on your iMac (to use them simultaneously), the resulting connection should be faster and more stable. This will help with bandwidth-intensive apps like live streaming, video calls, online gaming, remote learning, etc.
