Speedify can use any Internet connection that works with your device. On mobile that typically means just Wi-Fi and Cellular (although some devices also support Bluetooth tethering, ethernet via an adapter, or have multi-sim capabilities).
On Desktop the list is much more expansive - if it can get you online, Speedify can bond it. If you're already on Wi-Fi, there are lots of ways to get additional connections:
Adding Connections on PC
Adding Connections on Mac
Adding Connections on Linux
Let's Take it for a Spin!
We're going to test Speedify's ability to bond multiple Internet connections during a large download. Then we will manually disconnect from one of the connections in the middle of a file transfer and watch Speedify intervene and save the download by seamlessly moving it to your other working connection. For the purposes of this explanation we're going to assume that at least one of your Internet connections is a Wi-Fi network - but know that any connection(s) will work.
- Launch Speedify
Go to the main screen in Speedify, also known as the "Dashboard." Verify that you have two Internet connections by looking for their adapter "bubbles" at the top of the screen. If you need help getting a second connections follow the steps in the section above. If you wish, hit the "Test Speeds" button to have Speedify evaluate your current connections.
- Start a Download
Now, let's get some data flowing. To see Speedify in action, lets start up a large file download.
On Desktop you can try downloading: Test files from ThinkBroadband or TurnKey Internet, large application installers such as Google Chrome or Firefox, or just a large file from your personal Google Drive or Dropbox account. On Mobile, head to the App or Play Store and download a large game.
- Return to the Speedify Dashboard
Back in Speedify, you can see the data from the download flowing on the graph. Assuming you have a good Wi-Fi connection, it should put most or all of the data on to the Wi-Fi. If the Wi-Fi is slow, it may use a bit of data from your second connection to get the download going. Speed boosts are indicated by the thin black line that rides along the top of the graph.
- Turn off Wi-Fi
Now to see how Speedify makes your Internet more reliable, let’s manually disable Wi-Fi in the middle of the download. On iOS you can just slide up the Control Center from the bottom of your screen to access the Wi-Fi toggle. On Android, you can go to Settings to turn Wi-Fi off. On Mac or PC, turn off the connection from your network settings panel.
- Return to the Speedify Dashboard
Instantly, the lines that represent the Wi-Fi in the graph disappear, and the lines for your second connection surge. Speedify detects the loss of Wi-Fi and seamlessly moves the download over to the other connection. The application doing the download does not get cut off, the same download actually moves off of Wi-Fi without interruption. For people doing online gaming or stock trading this can be a lifesaver.
- Turn Wi-Fi On
Now, let's turn the Wi-Fi back on.
- Back to Both
Speedify sees that the Wi-Fi is back, and starts using it. Look carefully at the graph as the Wi-Fi returns: Speedify does not yet know how good the now-returned Wi-Fi is, so for a few seconds it uses both connections. It spreads the download between the two, until it determines that the “less expensive” Wi-Fi is working well, and then it shifts the download completely over to Wi-Fi, using no more data than is necessary on your second connection.
In addition to providing comprehensive online security, Speedify enables everyone from Amtrak commuters, to hardcore gamers and Twitch streamers to enjoy a more reliable Internet experience throughout the day.
And in the off-chance you happen to have 10 smartphones lying around, you can bond them all together into one super connection!
