Get Uninterrupted Connectivity on Your iPhone, iPad or Android Mobile Device
Cellular bonding is the way to go when you need reliable Internet in any location. Whether you're traveling and working remotely or you're live streaming to your audience, fast and uninterrupted connectivity is a must.
Most solutions for cellular bonding include a dedicated hardware device you can use for this. All you have to do is put your SIM cards or tether mobile devices to the device, power it up with an external battery (or make sure it has its own battery charged) and you can benefit from the power of all mobile data connections at the same time. Such solutions are provided by companies like LiveU, Teradek, Dejero, etc. - check out a comparison of cellular bonding solutions.
However, there are also cellular bonding solutions that are software only and run directly on your device. This is the case with Speedify and in this article we're going to explain how you can use cellular bonding directly on your smartphone or mobile device.
Cellular Bonding Directly on Your Mobile Device: What You Need
Cellular bonding needs at least two mobile data connections. So, if you want to use two cellular connections on your smartphone, you will need the following:
- the bonding smartphone with an active mobile data plan
- an additional smartphone, preferably connected to a different network carrier
- the Speedify Internet bonding software app
It's very simple to get things going and turn your smartphone into a cellular bonding device, whether you're just traveling and need to hop on a video call or if you're a reporter, broadcasting from the field and needing the best video quality when live streaming.
iPhone / Android Cellular Bonding Made Easy
Here's what you need to do:
- On your additional smartphone - create a personal hotspot to share the cellular connection over Wi-Fi.
- On your bonding smartphone - make sure mobile data is on and connect to the personal hotspot Wi-Fi you just created.
- Install and run the Speedify app on your bonding smartphone. Connect to the fastest server (recommended).
In the Speedify app interface you will be able to see your cellular connection and a Wi-Fi connection, which is actually the cellular connection of the second smartphone. You have full control over how your smartphone uses each of the bonded cellular connections - priorities, data caps, speed caps, etc.
