Your Guide to DSL Speed Tweaks: Add a Tethered Phone Connection for Faster Internet
Need a faster DSL connection and you don’t have access to any other form of broadband Internet that is faster (cable, fiber), then we recommend using your own mobile phone’s cellular data connection together with your existing DSL connection. This will certainly speed things up for you when you need them, especially if you’re on a 4G / LTE data plan.
Read below our easy step-by-step guide to combine a DSL Internet connection with a tethered phone connection on your Windows PC or Mac computer with the help of Speedify, a unique software app that can bond two or more connections together.
Make Your DSL Faster for Free Using a Tethered Phone Connection
If you’re living in remote areas “in the middle of nowhere” (as some might say) or, sadly enough, having no other alternatives to your DSL Internet connection where you’re located, then make the best of it and use your phone’s Internet link together with your existing DSL line. It’s very easy to combine them with our Speedify software app.
5 Steps to Combine Your DSL Line with Tethered Phone for Faster Internet
- Download and install Speedify on your Windows PC or Mac computer. Make sure you purchase a monthly or yearly subscription to be able to combine and securely run all your traffic with Speedify.
- Connect your mobile phone to your computer with the USB data cable – just plug that into an empty USB slot. Make sure the operating system detects the device and installs the correct drivers for it.
- Activate the USB tethering mode from your phone’s settings menu. Below we illustrate how that looks like on an iPhone 6 on iOS and an LG G4 on Android.
- Start Speedify and log in using your subscription credentials. Speedify will detect your active DSL Internet connection and your tethered phone connection and show them on the screen.
- Choose a server for Speedify to connect to and combine the DSL Internet link with your tethered phone connection. By default, Speedify will connect to the fastest server, but you can choose a specific location as well, if you need to unblock restricted content.
- Set the tethered phone connection on a Secondary priority and specify a daily or monthly data cap. You don’t want to exceed your quota and pay more, so Speedify will just cut the use of the tethered phone data connection once you’re done for the day / month.
However, if you’re on an unlimited data plan with your mobile phone, then feel free to use the tethered connection whenever connected with an “Always” priority.
- Enjoy faster Internet with Speedify, as it combines your DSL Internet link with your tethered phone connection for their aggregated bandwidth and speed. When both symbols light up in the Speedify interface, that means they’re connected and online, and Speedify is bonding the two.
