How Do I Combine Wi-Fi and Cellular on My iPad?
If you're getting slow or unreliable Internet on your iPad, you may have wondered if it's possible to use both the Wi-Fi and the mobile data connection on your iPad simultaneously. Actually, it's easy to combine connections on iPad with Speedify.
We're not talking about switching between connections between Wi-Fi and cellular data. We're saying you can use all your available connections simultaneously on your iPad. That's great news, as your connection will get faster and more stable. Your tablet will be able to harness both the download and upload bandwidth of your connections, Wi-Fi and mobile data.
Wondering how to combine connections on iPad? It's simple: you need a software channel bonding / link aggregation solution that will unlock the potential of your tablet.
Why Should I Combine Connections on iPad?
When iPads switch between connections, there's a problem: this takes time, at least a few seconds.
So what can happen during those seconds, you ask? Here are some examples:
- you may lose an important idea during your video calls
- you may be required to log in again to a particular platform or work VPN you're using, because the IP address of your device has changed with the switch. This means additional time.
- you may be booted from the online game you're playing
- you may lose your unsaved work in the cloud
... and the list can go on.
By combining connections on your iPad, you get more reliable connectivity. Your session will be consistent - meaning that your IP will not change if Wi-Fi should fail, because you'll still be connected to cellular data. That saves a lot of time and hassles.
Faster Internet is also a benefit when you combine connections on iPad. You can create a "super-pipe" from your Wi-Fi + cellular data connections.
All of this (and more!) is possible with the Speedify channel bonding app.
