Speed vs Redundant Mode

Speedify supports two modes: Speed, for fast performance, and Redundant, for the ultimate in reliability.  To be clear, unless you are certain that you need Redundant mode, you should pick Speed!

The two modes are:

Speed:  This is the normal mode, where Speedify sends each packet of your data on one connection at a time.  For a speed boost it may send some data on one connection, and some data on the other connection, but each packet of data is only sent once.

Redundant: Redundant mode gives you super-reliable Internet by sending all of your data over both the Cellular and Wi-Fi connections.  It uses a lot of data and a lot of battery power so it's not recommended for normal usage.  It's more appropriate for protecting very important sessions such as a business call over Skype or live streaming a video to an audience.  We have a number of reporters and people live streaming video who love Redundant mode, but it's not for everyone.

To change the modes:

On the main screen, Click the gear next to the Connection status :

Tap the Session, to pull it up, then tap Redundant mode picker:

If you are not sure which one to use, pick Speed!
