Speedify Questions Answered by CEO and Devs
On the 182nd episode of Speedify LIVE we hold our weekly Office Hours with the Speedify Devs to talk about all things Speedify, streaming, and how we’re using streaming to constantly improve Speedify!
We take viewer questions, showcase our in-studio stream setup, and even do a special Trivia for International Women’s Day!
Here are our 5 takeaways from our Office Hours:
- Our in-studio setup seems to be working pretty well for us: we’re using Comcast via Ethernet, one cellular via USB tethering and one via Wifi Hotspot. Even as we demo the setup, Speedify intelligently switched to use the cellular, secondary connections more, because the Ethernet seemed unstable!
- Speedify 13.1 coming soon: more performance improvements, particularly focusing on Starlink, using what we learn from our 24/7 Starlink Twitch stream. Our team is approaching Starlink from a couple angles: trying to fully utilize the connection in terms of performance, especially as it’s such a variable network type; and also improving how we handle Starlink failing.
- When it comes to sharing your bonded Speedify connection, you have a few options: while we don’t support traditional routers, you can share it via Ethernet or Wi-Fi, and even send the connection into a router first if you want to. On Linux you can use the CLI to set up sharing, on Windows you can use Connectify Hotspot, while you can also share from a Mac!
- Speedify offers Teams and Families subscriptions too! Teams is for businesses, with the ability to manage your users through the Subscription Management portal, purchase dedicated servers for your Team and even use port forwarding on said servers! Families, on the other hand, comes with 5 seats for the price of 1.5 of a regular Individual plan!
- You can easily combine 2 mobile connections in Speedify! If you’re on mobile, use its own cellular and connect to the second phone’s Wi-Fi Hotspot, and Speedify will bond them for better speeds and stability; OR if you’re on desktop, you can USB tether one of the connections while using the other via Wi-Fi – that’s what we do in the studio!
