Comparing Channel Bonding Solutions

Alex Gizis Combining Internet Connections, Featured

Unless you’re an IT professional, you may not be familiar with the term channel bonding. In a nutshell, a traditional channel bonding router is a hardware router that can connect to multiple wired Internet connections at once, and leverage their combined bandwidth for a faster and more reliable experience. The trouble is, channel bonding routers are made with networking pros in mind. Companies like Peplink and Mushroom Networks sell these devices to businesses that are often equipped with an IT department to handle complex setup and configuration, and the hardware itself can cost thousands of dollars.

Speedify vs. Peplink

With Speedify, we’ve turned this idea on its head. Speedify gives you the power to easily bond multiple Internet connections right on your computer, just like those Peplink routers, except there’s no hardware required. That’s right, just install the Speedify client app on your Mac & PC, and you’ve got all the features of Peplink’s enterprise-grade channel bonding routers and much more. For starters, Speedify can use any Internet connection available to your computer, including WiFi, 3G/4G, and Ethernet. On the other hand, your Peplink router can handle bonding with wired Internet connections only!

Even after you’ve spent thousands on your Peplink box, you still have to pay an additional $1,000 per year for their SpeedFusion cloud service to access cloud servers and enable real channel bonding features. Without the service add-on, your hardware router is merely load balancing, so common single-socket activities like video conferencing, file uploads, and downloads can’t actually take advantage of the increased bandwidth. Fortunately, Speedify lets you do all of this and more without the hefty price-tag. To put things into perspective, Peplink’s SpeedFusion service alone, is the equivalent of 7 years of Speedify service (which starts at just $9 per month. Even better, your first 2 GB of data transfer on our server network is on us, so you can try Speedify absolutely free.

See for yourself why Speedify is a better, easier, and more affordable solution for enjoying faster and more reliable Internet with the magic of channel bonding.
