Speedify LIVE Office Hours: Q&A with the Developers
September 7, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
How to Better Use Speedify for More Reliable Internet
On the 126th episode of Speedify LIVE we hold our weekly Office Hours, this time with Speedify developer Mike Kane to discuss all this Speedify, and Apple!
We chat about the upcoming new features and products introduced at the Apple Event, answer audience questions, and explain what the difference between a Sim and E-Sim is.
Here are our 5 takeaways from our Office Hours:
- If you would like to bypass certain sites or streams, you can do that with the Speedify CLI! On Windows, Linux and even MacOS, you can run Speedify through the Command Line Interface and create a custom Bypass for any site or stream you know the domain of. Follow our guide on our Support page or the SpeedifyCLI.pdf that’s located in your installation folder.
- By default, Speedify’s Transport Mode is set to Auto, but you can change it any time! Auto will go through all options and intelligently pick what’s best for your connection, but you can manually switch to TCP Multiple, TCP, UDP or HTTPS.
- In Speedify 12.4.1 we updated the way connection names are detected, but we are working on even more improvements! Right now, your carrier’s name will show up in Speedify as the connection name, which may cause you to see the same name multiple times if your connections are from the same carrier. We are updating this in our next release, though!
- Watching the Apple Event on the side, we learn that iPhone 14 will have improved built-in camera stabilization! We currently use an iPhone 12 Pro with a DJI Osmo 3 Gimbal for our IRL streams, so we are looking forward to seeing how much camera stability actually improves.
- When it comes to Dual Sim phones, they don’t actually use both sims at the same time! This is because phones still only have one radio available, meaning they can’t use multiple connections at the same time. Your main sim will be used 95% of the time, and then 5% of the time the phone checks in on the second sim to see if there’s any calls, messages, notifications, etc.
We get around by making up to eight TCP connections and we’re able to fill even ridiculously fast connections. We give you the full speed, so that’s one of the many reasons why Speedify is faster than any of the other VPNs out there.
