A new piece of software that promises to boost your Internet connection speed and reliability is now available for download. Connectify Dispatch is able to combine a wired Ethernet connection, a Wi-Fi connection and signals from 3G and 4G wireless modems to create a seamless data link that balances the load across all methods, according to the founders.
Connectify Inc. describes the end result as a super connection since users are able to utilize the combined speed of all connections. Furthermore, in the event that one or more of your connections are spotty, the software will switch to the most reliable connection should one of your links drop.
According to the press release, there doesn’t appear to be any limit to the number of various connections that can be used at once. CEO Alex Gizis points out that some hardware routers can aggregate certain types of connections but that such devices are hard to use and can cost thousands of dollars. With Connecfity Dispatch, anyone can use load-balancing technology with a simple-to-use interface.
The software is a result of a successful Kickstarter campaign that wrapped up in September. The project earned more than $100,000 which allowed them to revamp the user interface. They were able to launch the software on time thanks to help from numerous backers that offered feedback and beta testing.
Connectify offers a lifetime package that includes Connectify Dispatch and Hotspot PRO for just $89. If you’d rather give it a try before committing long-term, pricing starts at $70 for access to both programs for a full year.
