Merges all available Internet connections – Ethernet, Wi-Fi, 3G/4G – into a single, unified, blazing fast connection.
We all have a plethora of Internet connections at our disposal these days, everything from the 3G/4G connection on our mobile phone to the Ethernet connection at home to the Wi-Fi connection at our local coffee shop. However, each has its own bandwidth limitation, and depending on what tasks are involved, we constantly have to keep that in mind when we connect to the Web.
Now, thanks to Connectify Dispatch, that worry is a thing of the past. Connectify Dispatch allows users to connect to MULTIPLE INTERNET CONNECTIONS at once, harnessing their combined speed and reliability.
“For the first time, you can connect to the coffee shop Wi-Fi and your 4G mobile device simultaneously, using both Internet connections for their combined speed, and increased reliability,” notes the company.
More amazing is the fact that there’s apparently no limit to the number of networks you can connect to. The only limitation is the number of Internet connections that you have adapters for.
“With Connectify Dispatch, you can even use two different Wi-Fi networks at the same time,” it adds. “Just connect a secondary USB Wi-Fi card (in addition to your laptop’s on-board Wi-Fi card) and Dispatch does the rest. At the click-of-a-button, you’ll be cruising the web at warp speed, using the combined throughput of both wireless networks. Even if you lose connectivity on one of those networks, Dispatch keeps you online, moving all of your traffic onto the working connection until both networks become available again.”
Here, in the video below, the Connectify crew connects to 10 different Internet connections at one time: 7 Wi-Fi, a 4G, a 3G, and an Ethernet connection.
“Tethered smart phones, Ethernet and wired connections, 3G and 4G mobile broadband adapters, Wi-Fi and MiFi – you name it, Dispatch can use it,” it continues. “The more connections you have, the faster you’ll go!”
For BitTorrent users, this will mean a significant boost to moribund BitTorrent download speeds.
“Connectify Dispatch takes control of your PC’s Internet connectivity to look at every packet going into and out of your computer,” says the Connectify team. “When the packet is intercepted, Connectify Dispatch is able to route it to a desired network adapter. Using proprietary algorithms, Connectify Dispatch is able to determine the best physical adapter to use, and depending on user settings, Dispatch spreads your Internet traffic across available adapters to optimize your experience. The Dispatch user interface works hand-in-hand with this cloaked, low-level networking horsepower to provide load balancing and Internet speed acceleration.”
Now it’s not exactly cheap, but depending on how much you use the Internet it might just be worth the price. Keep in mind that it’s only available with the purchase of Hotspot PRO, its software router that allows you to share your Dispatch “super connection” over Wi-Fi with all of your friends, co-workers, and other devices in the area.
Another downside is that it’s only available for Windows XP, Vista, 7, and 8 (sorry Mac users).
Yet, all in all I find the service pretty intriguing. What do you think? Is it worth the price? Considering there’s nothing worse than a slow Internet connection I’d have to say yes it is.
