[GUIDE] Bonding Multiple Frontier Internet Connections
Here we go again, Internet issues with Frontier. Videos taking forever to load, stopping and buffering forever when you just haven’t the patience. Giving up on games because of lag. The Internet just hangs up on you and disconnects with no rhyme or reason. You aren’t alone and there is a fix.
So definitely contact your ISP. They can assess your offerings, maybe offer you a better package too. But even with their best package, will this mean a stronger internet connection for you? Will the dropouts stop?
In this article you will see how you can combine multiple connections directly on your device to get faster, more reliable and secure Internet – keep reading.
Why Would You Consider Frontier Channel Bonding?
Short answer: to get better Internet, both in terms of speed, but also reliability and security.
You don’t have to look far for reasons. Now that you’re working from home, the whole family / all your friends are using the same connection. That can’t be good.
- Are you doing any live streaming and had to lower the quality or even postpone streaming sessions?
- seeing high latency when gaming online?
- trying to watch video on demand and seeing nothing but buffering?
- websites barely load?
If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above, then you definitely need a faster, more reliable and secure Internet. The solution we mentioned earlier: bonding multiple Frontier Internet connections.
Combine Multiple Frontier Channels at the Same Time for a More Reliable and Faster Internet Connection
You might be thinking: “what if I just get a higher tier plan from Frontier? That would fix my Internet problems.” Well – that’s not always the case. Think about it – you’d still have just one connection available. And if it’s affected or they’re doing maintenance works, it’ll drop out. It’s always better to have multiple Internet connections. Preferably from different providers. This way, if one of them fails, you will still be connected through the other connection(s).
And that’s exactly what Speedify can help you with. Speedify is a bonding VPN service that allows you to combine multiple Internet connections simultaneously directly on your device. It allows you to do Frontier channel bonding easily. You’ll get the combined speed of the connections you’re bonding, plus failover protection along side VPN benefits like encryption.
3 Steps to Frontier Channel Bonding
Forget about complicated schemes of using dedicated bonding hardware together with the Frontier routers. You’ll spend a lot more on that. Software bonding is the way you get the best bang for your buck.
You’ll need at least two separate Frontier Internet connections. That usually means Frontier Internet from two or more routers. They don’t need to be all your home Internet connections, some may be nearby Frontier public Wi-Fi hotspots.
Depending on the devices you want to do the bonding on – you may need extra Wi-Fi / Ethernet USB adapters to plug into your computer / laptop.
How to: Frontier Connection Bonding
Here’s what you have to do for faster, more reliable and secure Frontier Internet:
- Get a Speedify subscription and install it on your computer / mobile device. Naturally, you can try before you buy, but there’s also a 30 days money back guarantee policy.
- Make sure all your Frontier connections are active and connect them to your device. On computers – use both the internal / existing network adapters and external ones.
Typical setups include using wired Ethernet from one Frontier router the Wi-Fi connection from the other. Or combining two wired Ethernet connections (with the help of extra USB adapters), for best performance in gaming or live streaming. Or even bonding two Wi-Fi connections, for increase mobility around the house.
- Run Speedify, choose a server to connect to and you’re done. It will detect all connections and start bonding them. In the Speedify user interface you will be able to see stats about the bonding performance, jitter, etc.
If you’re running Speedify on a Linux device – e.g. Raspberry Pi – you can turn that into a bonding router easily. This way, you can share the fast, reliable and secure Internet with all devices in your household.
