Speed Up Your File Transfers with Connectify

connectify dispatch

We’re about to show you a video that’ll change your mind about the speed and reliability of your Internet connection. You’ll witness engineers eating their own dog food. Sounds disgusting, right? Well, it’s not quite what you think. Dogfooding is a techie term used amongst software companies to describe how their developers demonstrate the competency of the product they’re promoting.

Much like the inner-workings of the BitTorrent protocol, where the more seeders you have, the faster you’re able to download a file, Connectify gives you a faster connection as you add wireless networks. Their latest product, Dispatch, is especially useful for you. With each Internet connection you add, you can double and even triple the speed of your BitTorrent file transfers! To paraphrase: the more Internet connections you have, the faster you’ll go. This concept sounds familiar, huh?

If you like the idea of finding a solution to the occasional speed issue you’ve experienced (hint: it’s probably your wi-fi connection), here’s your solution. And you can help make it a reality by backing their Kickstarter campaign. Throw these guys a bone already. ;)

    Sounds great, but that brief video, to the average user, tells us very little about what you guys actually did, how it works, and especially the steps the layperson would need to follow, precisely, to accomplish what you just showed us.

    For instance, the average layperson has no idea where or how you got these multiple connections. Do we need several different wifi accounts? (because that would be seriously cost prohibitive. Or, can we accomplish that with one wifi account but several other pieces of hardware (which we’d have little specific understanding of). Even once we understood all that, how on earth do we configure it all. While I appreciate that what you guys achieved is probably pretty awesome, I’m a little higher up the food chain than almost anyone I know when it comes to messing around with computers and yet I’ve got little clue as to what I just witnessed.
