[FIXED] MacBook Pro Slow Internet - Use All Available Connections at Once
Spending time to troubleshoot your slow Internet connection on your MacBook Pro is certainly an option. And you should definitely do that when you have time to spare. After all - you should make sure you're getting what you're paying for from your ISP.
But when you need something that will always work, you should look at Speedify. It not only fixes slow internet on MacBooks, but can also help you avoid that in the first place.
As a fast bonding VPN, Speedify allows you to use all of your available connections at once on your MacBook. Remember - that's "at once" and not "switching between them" - here's the difference.
Speedify dynamically sends traffic through all your networks - Wi-Fi, wired Ethernet, cellular, etc. - depending on each network's performance, to get you the fastest, most stable and secure Internet at any given time. If one of the connections drops (e.g. you connect to a sticky Wi-Fi hotspot), Speedify will move more traffic over cellular or wired Ethernet. And it's all seamless to you, even when streaming - you won't even know it happened till you check the stats in the app.
How to use Speedify on Your MacBook
It's simple - use integrated and external network adapters on your MacBook to connect to different networks. Speedify will automatically recognize each new connection and start using it. You can find more details about combining different connections types in our knowledge base.
Speedify - the Best Way to Get Fast, Reliable and Secure Internet on Your MacBook
Aside from getting you fast and stable Internet connectivity, Speedify uses servers in the cloud and encrypts your traffic to and from those servers. This means that your online activity is safe from hackers and cyber criminals that might be lurking on public Wi-Fi networks for example.
This comes in handy also when the network you're connected to restricts access to certain websites and apps - mostly streaming and social media ones - YouTube, Facebook, TikTok, etc. This is the case for many educational and office networks. The point is that with the traffic being encrypted, you can access those websites freely.
There's another upside to this: you can choose the servers to connect to, including those in other countries. So, if you're abroad or need to access a local resource within a country, connect to a server in the region where access is not blocked and you're all set!
To wrap this up - use Speedify to fix MacBook Pro slow internet and get peace of mind when it comes to internet connectivity in general.
