MacBooks and Internet Speed and Reliability - a Love and Hate Story
Most MacBook Pro users are on a constant struggle to find fast and stable Internet. Whether they're working while traveling or, more recently, even while working from home. And that's because everybody's overcrowding the existing Internet infrastructure in residential areas. So what can you do about this?
The answer is simple: use all available Internet connections at once. And we're not talking about switching between connections - Wi-Fi, Ethernet, cellular dongle, etc. We're saying you can use all your available connections simultaneously on your MacBook Pro. That's great news, as your connection will get faster and more stable. Your MacBook Pro will be able to harness both the download and upload bandwidth of your connections.
Wondering how to combine Internet connections on MacBook Pro? It's simple: you need a software channel bonding / link aggregation solution that will unlock the potential of your MacBook.
Reasons to Combine Connections on MacBook Pro
Two words: speed and reliability for your Internet connectivity. As long as you have access to multiple connections, why not use them? Think about it:
- your home Internet is wired Ethernet or Wi-Fi
- you can tether your cell phone to your MacBook Pro for a cellular connection
- you can also connect to a public Wi-Fi nearby - from a restaurant or from your city.
Feel free to add other options to that list as well.
So, when you combine all you available connections on your MacBook (to use them simultaneously), the resulting connection should be faster and more stable. This will help with bandwidth-intensive apps like live streaming, video calls, online gaming, remote learning, etc.
