I bet you that the number of people who use MiFi adapters and Speedify is FAR less than those who are using VPNs to circumvent geo-restrictions.
So it is quite the way around; the masses are VPN users.
The real evil here is corporate greed and their need to restrict who watches what.
TL;DR: Even worse than the last software bundle. Half of the software is limited to a one year license. But that doesn't really matter since most of the software is either completely unnecessary or has a good freeware/open-source alternative. I mean, WinZip? Really?
The only software worth it might be EaseUS ToDo Backup (since there isn't really a fully featured backup solution that's also user-friendly) and Speedify VPN (although its use case where you want to combine multiple internet connections is really rare).
T-Mobile one would be $180 for 5 lines of unlimited(video at 480p unless you use a VPN or pay and $15/month/line(when you can use something like Speedify for $15 for 6 months and you have to pay once for 5 users connecting simultaneously).
You get deprioritized after 50 gigs.
128kbps and unlimited texting for free overseas. $0.25 calls. $50/month gets you 15gb international LTE(and unlimited calls and text) for one line. $5/day gets you 500MB international LTE and unlimited talk and text.
Alex from Connectify, the makers of Speedify. You're right about the free VPNs. We're not one of them, though. We charge yearly subscriptions so we don't need to do any of the creepy advertising stuff that free VPNs do to pay their bills.
Bought myself 1/2 price special MLB TV for Fathers Day - I'm mothering the kid who made my husband a father - I deserve it!
I'm playing around with VPNs, in hopes of cutting cable, but I can't seem to get it to work on my phone. I've tried Speedify, TunnelBear, and Windscribe. None of them seem to be working. I've tried multiple countries.
I'm headed out to my InLaws (no TWCSpectrum). What should I try next?
Worst case, I wait till we get home, pour some wine then watch the archive.
The Unifi Security Gateway products as well as the EdgeRouter products from Ubiquiti can handle this. The basic USG has 3 ports, one WAN, one LAN and one that can be LAN2 or WAN2.
Using nearly any hardware solutions would be round-robin or failover only most likely without getting into anything fancy - but it sounds like you're already aware of that. You can use some software solutions to bridge the connections as a single link, but this requires a form of bonding over VPN. Speedify is a pure software solution which works upto 50Mbit I believe. Peplink also supports this between two Peplink products. One at your home, one in a colo or elsewhere connected to a much faster internet connection. This is really intended for commercial applications and priced accordingly. There are DIY solutions out there but it's going to require a lot more knowledge and time on your part which likely wouldn't be worth it.
i've tried that but overwatch disconnects when there's a change in connections :( anyway i've found a free vpn, Speedify. i can play overwatch with pretty good ping (around 20+), took me some time to find since i've tried like 5-6 free vpns which all gave around 300-400 ping so i guess this is the one that works best so far. but since its free, you only get 5gb per month - sufficient i guess. you can definitely give Speedify a try!
I’ve been using VPN for 4 months now on an iPhone 8 Plus. They have no way of telling since it seems like I’m sending data to a random corporate server. The thread was about a Samsung device that likely had a software bug. Even sprint which says tethering data is shared with vpn has no way of telling if you use a HIGH QUALITY PAID VPN. DONT USE FREE ONES, I use Speedify which is $3 a month if you buy for 6 months and will work on 5 devices at once. T-Mobile makes you pay $10/device/month so it’s a $47/month difference if you have 5 devices that want to watch HD YT/Netflix.
speedify removes our packet loss 100%, we have 0-10% from cox to fortnite.
NOW, the problem is, the legality of it. Obviously we aren't cheating but it is a VPN.
Straight from speedify:
> Yeah, we aren't clear on Fortnite's policies. I see some places where Fortnite says it can kick you from games for using a VPN or people complaining their IP address got banned for using a VPN. On the other hand, there are a lot of Speedify users saying they are using it to play Fortnite. I haven't heard of any specific examples of people getting banned from Fortnite for using Speedify, but since Speedify is a VPN, it is a possibility. I'm not sure if the people getting banned were doing something else malicious to trigger the ban. I don't have the full story on any of those cases.
I posted on epic forums, but no responses. The last thing I want is to be banned for trying to have a better connection.
Yea but there is risk. Download one of the free vpn software out there (I use Speedify) and change your country to whatever you like. Then login to steam or create another account and buy the game. You can family share from then on. BE warned: I won't be responsible if they ban your account.
From my experience, you're going to have to use a proxy/vpn. You can try certain youtube video downloaders and see if they can get past the restriction. For myself, if youtube-dl recognizes that it's blocked in my country, it won't download the video.
Your best bet is to use a proxy/vpn. For myself, I just needed a VPN for a few quick tasks, so I needed something free, and Speedify worked perfectly for that because it doesn't require you to sign up. There's probably better VPNs out there, but I just needed something quick.
Só precisas de uma VPN para fazer a subscrição; no meu caso eu usei uma app para o telemóvel pq 90% das VPNs pagas fazem redirect para a netflix dos USA.
Depois podes usar cá sem VPN, todos os meses são removidos aqueles valores de TL (a moeda deles) da tua conta. A conversão deixa o preço super barato. Não sei se muda o catálogo para o da turquia, mas até agora tenho encontrado praticamente todas as séries e filmes que preciso. (Nunca tive netflix portuguesa, não faço ideia se o catálogo é diferente).
No meu caso pago quase 5€ e divido com outra pessoa, ficando a 2,5€/mês a cada. Para quatro pessoas tens que procurar na net o valor que não sei de cor.
Edit: A vpn que usei chamava-se Speedify - Bonding VPN
Okay... I can understand that not having your own money can be tricky when you want to take extra security measures but don't get, and I repeat do not get free VPN. How do you think their business works? Where do you think they get money from? I'll tell you. Your data. Selling it and exploiting it. Yes, the same data you want to protect. If you don't have money to spare or cannot talk your parents into getting a proper VPN for your and their safety then at least get the one that has free plan alongside to paid ones. I myself had limited amount to spare for a VPN so I am sharing my account with my roommates by setting it up on our router and they paid their 2/3 of the plan that I got from NordVPN but before that we all were using free ProtonVPN plans which was great even if a bit limited. We also used TunnelBear before they sold themselves out and Speedify but it was quite slow (oh the irony).
That's a great point. Comcast deliberately slows down Netflix because getting money from subscribers isn't enough for them.
Hiding your traffic as encrypted unknown traffic with a smaller entity means that Comcast can't put the effort into specifically throttling it. That means your Netflix will come through quicker as they don't know it is Netflix traffic.
I'd use the sliders to pay only for Speedify if you buy this. All that other stuff is a thin layer of shit on functionality that's already provided in the operating system.
edit: Speedify seems slow, maybe too slow for media (i.e. Netflix) tunnelling. If you try to torrent they make you reconnect to a different server. I tried downloading a Linux ISO and I'm getting 1.2MBps vs 3.00MBps on a super sketchy Russian VPN. Still probably worth the beat the average price.
edit: And their redemption method seems to have a huge security hole in it. People could easily redeem for free. They must know that given how obvious the hole is.
Just use a VPN (Speedify is an easy set-up), as rugbypass technically doesn't broadcast to Aus, so set as Singapore IP.
Much much less than Foxtel, and no money to Murdoch, plus all European games etc. Very happy camper
Ja, und das wird auch jeder andere anständige VPN.
Allerdings gibt es gerade das Humble Software Bundle mit, neben einer Menge Schrott, einem 1-Jahres-Abo für Speedify für ca. 7€. Es ist etwas schwer zu sagen, ob sie für Torrenting und Streaming geeignet sind, da sie auch selber von sich behaupten, "mehr auf Geschwindigkeit als auf Privatsphäre" zu setzen, aber die Software erlaubt die Auswahl von extra P2P-Servern in den Niederlanden. Ich würde einfach mal behaupten, dass man damit auf der sicheren Seite sein sollte?
in the last 3 months of fortnite, i have never once seen 0% packet loss for more than a few seconds at a time. Using the Speedify trial, I logged in to a game and saw 0% packet loss for a whole minute. Going to buy it and see how it goes. I don't know much but maybe some common servers cox uses in their hop routes suck and the vpn route avoids those servers? /u/justbilled
I purchased it myself and I've been using it for a week. I had purchased CyberGhost from Humble Bundle last year for $5 for a year and year before that Speedify vpn for $9 for a year. If you keep an eye out for bundled deals like this you never have to pay hundreds of dollars for VPN's.
I pull 32Mbp/s (around 4MB/s) here in downtown San Francisco on my unlocked LG something.
I bought the cheapest CDMA unlocked android with a decent battery and use EasyTether or PDANet+ with Speedify to both bond with my WiFi (the occasional network or phone hickup is saved and all my data VPNed). I’ve gone through 32GB so far.
I actually used a VPN called Speedify and it seems to have fixed the packet loss but I'm still getting these microstutters in all my online games and across all my Pcs at home.
So I'm guessing sure the packet loss is fixed but all Speedify is doing just rerouting it, its still hitting my house but not its rerouted before its sent so I'm not losing any so yea I think I am screwed.
Hi - Cristian from Connectify here. Per /u/hugburger's point, you can use multiple connections simultaneously with our Speedify VPN service. It's the only software-only solution that does channel bonding. Here's a guide on combining multiple Internet connections you'll find useful:
For your setup, you can set your VDSL connection as "Always on" and your tethered mobile connection as "Secondary" - this way, it'll only activate when there's a need for a speed boost, like YouTube and other streaming video websites.
> One of the softwares actually advertise as "Up to 300% Internet Speedup with Internet Booster".
This is marketing. The truth is that ISPs use their own cache servers for things like youtube and you as the end user end up using the cache server when it is either caching while you watch or is under high usage and you end up sitting there waiting for the video to buffer. Using their VPN gets around your ISPs cache server and you end up at Google's server instead making it faster for you the end user. This is just one example. And yes using any other VPN should also do the trick, but Speedify also offers you the ability to combine connections from multiple ISPs, like cable connections and mobile networks, and available wifi broadening your available bandwidth.
Hi - Cristian from Connectify here. Per what /u/RemixF mentioned - our Speedify app does link aggregation with VPN security. You can combine any number and type of different Internet connections - Speedify will create one connection to the outside, but, as mentioned above, you are able to set up priorities in order to save on 3G data. Better yet - Speedify will not drop as other VPNs do once there's a connection disconnect. Essentially, the computer you'll be running that onto will always be online with 3 connections from different sources.
So - not sure whether you'll be needing a VM anymore, to appear as different machines...
Speedify/Connectify (the bundle) seem to accomplish this for free, but limited. I'd start there. Speedify will establish the VPN, and Connectify will broadcast the network. I believe they were built exactly for that purpose.
I'm not sure if Speedify will allow you to open ports however. There was a VPN provider, StrongVPN which was paid-for and I'm fairly certain they allowed port forwarding.
Currently I use Private Internet Access (really, really cheap) and they allow a single port to be forwarded.
In this context, it just means that all your internet traffic gets tunneled through their VPN server before reaching its destination on the internet.
It's the only practical way to bond two separate internet connections (like the connection to your local Wi-Fi router and the 3G/4G/5G connection to your mobile data network) together to benefit from the combined bandwidth available from both connections.
So let's say you're downloading a large file and your mobile data connection has 10 Mbps of bandwidth available and your Wi-Fi connection has 20 Mbps of bandwidth available. The VPN server can download the file on your behalf and then send it to your device via your Wi-Fi and mobile data connections simultaneously so that you can now download the file at roughly 30 Mbps rather than being limited to 10 or 20 Mbps (as would be the case without Speedify).
Hi - Cristian from Speedify here. I would strongly recommend you read about channel bonding / link aggregation technology and how it is used in software products. Speedify is a fast bonding VPN that uses that technology to combine multiple internet connections. The fact is that Speedify is helping a lot of people minimize packet loss, even when using a single connection, thanks to its error correction algorithms.
To answer /u/gordegort's question about potential bans from Epic - I would advise contacting them directly.
I usually have 180ms to 220ms to EU servers (from portugal) If I use Private Internet Access VPN and connect to a frankfurt server I have the same latency but if I use the Speedify and connect to a frankfurt server I get 40-70ms so thank you now I can actually play the game
Hi - Cristian from Speedify here. Bonding the 2 DSL lines with other types of connections (cellular, public WiFi, etc.) is something that Speedify can do. The advantage of Speedify is that unlike other implementations, it's the only one available to the general public as a software-only solution, not requiring any special bonding hardware. Plus - it adds security to it, being also a VPN.
So, you can bond all supported connections on a certain device (WiFi + cellular on your smartphones, WiFi + cellular + DSL1 + DSL2 on your computers).
Better yet, if you want to share the secured super-connection with all devices in your household, you can do so with the help of Connectify Hotspot, which can share that via WiFi on any Windows computer - see here:
I can't say anything about speedify, but if you are mostly in the market for a VPN then you can sometimes get lifetime deals on VPN Unlimited or PureVPN
40 bucks is a lot more than BTA on a bundle, but after the 1 year Humble license expires, Speedify would need an annual payment to keep it alive...
going by the comparison table on the page linked by /u/ksryn, VPN Unlimited isn't great.
Yes it's real. I've found that it works best at giving you more consistent speeds rather than faster speeds. At home I didn't notice any increases in speed while using speedify but when I was out and had a crappy signal on either wifi or my cellular data then Speedify helped me have more consistent speeds compared to what I got using one or the other. If you are dealing with really important stuff it also has a setting that allows you to setup redundancy which will transfer the data twice over both connections.
I mainly tried it for the VPN feature but thought that the speed boosting thing was interesting. While it didn't booster my speed ymmv and if you're always in areas with crappy signal then the app may help you have a more reliable data connection. They do offer a trial tho. You can use 1gb of data for free. So I would test it and see how it works for you.
No. I have two VPNs and Express is one of them. Never had an issue. However just get Speedify VPN. It's free for 2gb of traffic with no sign up needed. Just use it for Facebook while your here and you won't even have to pay for it.
When you're with VM a VPN might not even solve your problem. I use Speedify and still can't access Piratebay. I had a similar issue with GhostVPN before.
Anyway, I went through this list after the most recent blocking and found a few reliable sites that are working fine (with my VPN).
Try them out:
I also believe <could be wrong>the total data used will be doubled due to the nature of the VPN solution. As an example, for 10 MB of video, a given connection (like your cellular device) would need to send that to Speedify, then another 10MB is used to download the Speedified data.
I use Speedify VPN and it bonds ADSL+4G together, thats the best speeds I've found
I hope thats what your question meant anyway :)
Only certain VPN points are blacklisted with Fanatical. A lot of gamers use VPN services that have been Humble Bundled, like Speedify: these are more likely to be blocked. I can use the VPN service provided by my usenet provider with Fanatical to avoid inflated pricing.
Don't think so, heres my internet speed results:
I live in South San Diego and our area suffers from packet loss when connecting to the AMZN servers (Fortnite uses these servers), however I have remedied the problem by downloading a VPN called Speedify and now I get 0% packet loss and usually 20-30 ping in game so don't think that's the issue. I played with the VPN off and its the same thing.
I started using Speedify (have to play through a vpn anyway) and it helped a lot with the rubber banding as it can rescue packets or something. It's in the humble bundle but not long left. Maybe an hour...
As far as I know there's a hardware limitation to what you are trying to achieve , I know of an app that can increase your internet speed by combining WiFi and Mobile data (Speedify VPN ) but take a look at autotools connectivity option in tasks , maybe it might help in what you are trying to achieve .
sorry for this late second part answer but I forgot to mention you that you still can access Primedice via a VPN service. Even a free one will do the job, like Hotspot Shield, Speedify, TunnelBear, ProtonVPN or lots of others.
Hope you'll find one who will suits your needs ;)
It's an Eagle Cap truck camper, the 1200. My ideal solution would be to build my own trailer, since literally everything built by the RV industry is crap (trim falling apart, creaky bullshit, etc). Google "Leaf House 2" for my favorite bit of inspiration.
My utility situation is almost ready for complete boondocking. Internet I have some large directional LTE antennas and a good cell router (Mofi), combined with a VPN service that does channel bonding (Speedify), which allows me to utilize the combined bandwidth of any nearby wifi networks I can get on.
For energy I'm in the middle of building my DIY solar + battery + inverter setup. My previous job was as a systems engineer for a power electronics company, so I'm eagerly designing my own system on the cheap!
Have you tried to additionally install Speedify? I also don't like any additional stuff when things supposed to run smoothly.
Another thing to try is to change the protocol to IPsec or IKEv2.
I assume you did reinstall your VPN already. Sometimes it really helps to reinstall the app and reload your phone.
Sorry if everything above is pretty generic.
I'll admit I don't know anything about Speedify, but PIA is kinda the go-to VPNs for top tier service and being confident that they aren't selling your info.
Just do your research before using speedify because not all VPNs are created equally.
Speedify VPN. Has 1gb free. No sign up needed. You can get it from the App Store. Unless your apple account is in China. In which case go to settings. Sign out of iTunes account. Then create a new one and pick another country such as New Zealand. At which point you can access blocked apps.
It will absolutely affect your internet speed, and depending how far away the server is that you’re connecting to, your ping in some multiplayer games would be so bad it’d be literally unplayable. That said, you’d just have to remember to turn it off before launching a game and you’d be fine.
If you really want a VPN running in-game though, I’d look into services like Speedify that advertise themselves as having fast connection speeds and see if they have a server near you. You’ll still take a hit but it’d be negligible compared to a server hosted on the other side of the country
Feel free to read the other comments in the thread, but in short: It's likely bonding with Speedify. It seems like I need a dedicated PC in order to give all devices the bonded connection.
Edit: Their VPN servers splits the packages up, their software on my PC puts them back together, resulting in higher speed. Maybe not exactly like that, but the end result is much higher speed on everything, including streams from Netflix, Youtube, Steam downloads, single file downloads (tried an Ubuntu dist as example).
Defrag - useless, use the windows defrager.
Revo uninstaller - good program
Backup - don't need an app for that and there are others for cheaper or free.
System care - use CCleaner which is recommended and free.
Driver booster - useless junk that doesn't work or damages your drive.
Speedify VPN - probably junk unless you need a monthly subscription at which point the program should be free. I recommend PIA.
Malware fighter - use Malwarebytes, not whatever this is.
Hotspot - there are hundreds of programs that do this, you can also do it yourself without buying anything.
File recovery - never heard of this program before, and it's not one anyone would recommend.
Winzip - use instead 7zip, it's 100% free and works with every type of compression.
I tried this vpn called "Speedify" for a good game or so and had 0% packet loss the whole time based off results of another user that had the same problems from Cox. I got a couple ping spikes so I'm probably going to find a faster VPN. I just tried it out today to see what would happen since I was getting 30%-40% packet loss the whole day. The user did say they have been using Speedify for a good amount of time and found it was the only solution so I believe it should be fine ban-wise.
I've solved the issue by using a VPN to do the update and then turned it off and it's working normally the VPN I'm using is Speedify and it's not blocked for me, was previously using TunnelBear but blocked months ago.
Not every computer is set up to respond to ping requests.
I don't have a Blackberry but when I visit a site in my phone's browser it specifically tells me whether the URL is invalid (DNS failure), or whether the web site isn't responding. Without an error message, and without any specific information from you, it's hard to be specific about a fix.
But maybe using a VPN would help. You'd be relying on the VPN's DNS lookup and network connectivity which should be the same whether you're on LTE or not. I use Speedify for this purpose and it's free for limited usage --- but I assume any VPN would work.
you can also keep and eye on . some of their software bundles have paid VPN services in them for almost nothing. I got 1 year of Speedify for like $8 that way. My personal recommendation for VPN's is PIA and ExpressVPN.
I use a VPN called Speedify. It was recommended because I was having problems connecting to the SEA servers for Rocket League. My ping has now been reduced from 200 to 40 when playing Rocket League in Singapore. Go figure.
Speedify is a channel bonding VPN that will combine all of your available connections. So for instance on your iOS device it will combine your Cellular and WiFi radios to give you faster reliable internet all with the security of a VPN. You can learn more here . It's available for all major platforms. I'd be happy to answer any specific questions you may have.
I use Speedify which combines both WiFi and data for more reliability(and speed but mostly reliability since I have gigabit at home) so I haven’t noticed it much but I do have to reset my VPN every day in the morning since it times out at night.
> called Connectify (later called Speedify)
You might want to look into it again. Speedify is basically a load-balancing VPN. It will bond your cable and your phone hotspot to one of their VPN servers. They have a full redundant mode where the traffic is sent over both connections so you won't have any interruptions if one drops.
That might what I mean. But I've also heard "bonding", but I don't know which is right.
I might be misinterpreting you, but Speedify is "basically" combining my two connections. Unless I'm mistaken, "load balancing" would not help with things like Netflix, downloading games on Steam etc, since (with load balancing) I'd connect to those services with only one of the connections.
It would, however, work for torrent files or smaller files in a queue since each connection would download its own file.
That's not what Speedify does though. My two connections both connect to Speedify's VPN, which then "becomes" a single connection from them to the service I'm using.
So Netflix, Steam and other streaming services works for me as it would if I only had one connection to begin with.
Basically, I don't think something like Multi-WAN works, because it's not doing what I want. I could be wrong about all of this though.
Yes, I'm connecting to their VPN with both my connections.
Here's a screenshot of it when making sure I download a single large file.
It was taken right now. My PC is currently connected to a 4G router (ethernet) and an ADSL connection (wifi). Both connections are being used to download a single file. I've tested it with two 4G connections and it doubles my speed (even more when using all three).
Without Speedify I would need something else (and the ISP as well like you say), but would it work with a PC that has two ethernet ports and wifi? It could connect to one 4G router through wifi and another with a cable, then use the second ethernet port to share its connection to a router (which in turn shares it to wifi devices and whatever else I connect to its ports)?
Okay, great - you're the second person to (more or less) confirm that it is bonding. I was almost starting to get worried that I was imagining things.
I'm fine with them seeing my traffic. Worst case scenario I'll just disconnect their VPN.
Thanks again, I'll have to look into getting the right PC hardware for the job. Or maybe not, because I had missed that Netflix apparently doesn't allow streaming from Speedify's VPN. Well, that sucks since that was the primary reason for getting the bonded connection to my TV. Oh well, maybe I won't need anything this whole thread was about. At least I can download games from Steam faster.
No I just use the OpenVPN client application on my PC, if I only use a router running OpenVPN or no VPN at all it works.
PPTP/L2TP VPN's also work fine.
I just tried 2018.2b9 and that doesn't work either with OpenVPN client.
Also tried a free privacy VPN Speedify (uses OpenVPN client) and that also produced the error.
> You can only bond per packet if something on the other side is set up to do the same thing.
That's why I spoke about using a VPN, Speedify does essentially the same thing.
My ISP won't do anything about my bandwidth, I have a 16k DSL contract and I can't switch to VDSL because there are no free ports in my neighborhood. The city is currently at building out the fibre infrastructure and I might be able to use fibre in the next few months, but I'm still bound to my old contract until April 2019, so unless I wanna pay for internet twice, I won't get faster speeds.
As it seems I might be able to use ECMP Load Balancing with my Mikrotik router. _load_balancing_with_masquerade
I use Speedify as my daily driver. It's main feature is to combine internet connection speeds. Which I do with my Unlimited T-Mobile Plan and Hotel Wifi sometimes(when I'm in a hotel) but it does so through a VPN. They only have one server that allows P2P tho(located in Amsterdam. Netherlands). I'm using it right now for getting Oceans. You get 1GB/Month free and also have a 7 day free trial to test it out!
Acabo de comprar el AT&T Internet en Casa, servicio pre-pago. Supestamente es limitado a 5 Mbps pero me esta dando 30 a 50 Mbps cuando connecto al modem usando ethernet. Usando wifi esta a 20 Mbps. El servicio el illimitado por 200 pesos mensuales. No esta nada mal.
Compre el servicio AT&T como respaldo al servicio de fibra Totalplay que me da de 20 a 50 Mbps de los 100 Mbps prometidos usando ethernet... y a veces falla.
Uso Speedify, un servicio de VPN que une mis servicios de internet. Juntos, AT&T y Totalplay me dan consistentment arribas de los 40 Mbps. Si es necesario, tambien puedo unir mi iPhone con servicio Telcel -- eso me pone por arriba de los 60 Mbps y tengo un muy alta tolerancia a faltas (Mi trabajo requiere videoconferencias, a veces todo el dia.)
Vivo en Colonia Juarez. Cuando me mude a Cancun otra cosa sera...
I've tried PureVPN, Speedify, iPredator, and Nord, Nord has been my favorite thus far. PureVPN has a tendency to disconnect on its own leaving my BitTorrent client running, speedify had good speed but wasn't always reliably speedy, iPredator was just solid all around, but Nord has been extremely good to me. No issues at all, lots of speed and choices for servers, and when I disconnect it automatically kills the programs I tell it to. Plus the price is decent.
I’m a PC player that’s been having this issue for a few months. I used to get these ghost shots every game, sometimes multiple in the same game. Shotgun animation, pellet hit markers, no damage, ammo count doesn’t go down. I also noticed that I had a constant 1-3% upload packet loss which I attributed the bug to. A lot of people that I’ve talked to with this issue have Cox internet which could be a common factor. For anyone on PC struggling to fix this, I downloaded this VPN called Speedify that has completely solved my packet loss problems. I still get good ping and haven’t had a single ghost shot. It costs $50/year though. Still a terrible problem that minimal packet loss shouldn’t cause.
Hey - Cristian from Connectify here. What type of DHCP error are you getting? Did you check any potential conflicts with firewalls?
You could try Speedify VPN, as on Windows it uses the TAP v9 adapter and lots of people say it works with their game consoles.
In fortnight low packet loss manifests as micro starters in game. Hi packet loss manifests as larger teleports. In overwatch low packet loss is often hardly noticeable, higher packet loss manifests as rubberbanding.
Speedify vpn will eliminate up to ~10% packet loss with redundant mode enabled (sends every packet multiple times so it has a much higher chance of getting through). Also turn off jumbo MTU in speedify.
I get 970 Megabit without VPN 968 Megabit with Speedify(practically empty gigabit server like 4 miles from me). So the speed difference is negligible for me. Also I paid $18 for 6 months and got 6 months free for testing their beta on iOS 12 beta on an iPad Mini 4. So I’m effectively paying 90 cents a month right now.
Okay so I used a Speedify VPN to eliminate 5% of my packet loss while playing this. I assume now they are double checking the list to make sure no underage,or aimbotters played this tournament. Now lets just assume for a sec I made it in the top 200. Would I get DQed because i used a VPN mid tourney?
It keeps telling me that it couldn't download some content from the servers.
What I did to fix it:
Get a VPN (I use Speedify). Change location to Russia. Download from those servers. Works like a charm.
these re just from googel i do suggeest yoyu try a few experiments.
Yeah, this seems like the best option. Could do it this slightly-more-complicated way too:
Another, even more complicated plan:
What are the chances you've got a VPN? I've got Speedify om my phone, but it's also got a desktop app. When I use the VPN, it uses the VPN's DNS... bypassing my local pi-hole. Could use something like that to access things you don't want to access.
Really slight chance but did you use any sort of VPN program??
I was using the app Speedify in order to eliminate my packet loss issues but I am not sure Epic allows vpns, could be a possible reason.
No they did not say anything about the problem other than hoping I come back with them. I still have a year left before the subscription ends in December 2019. I think I might just use NordVPN on my smartphone until the subscription terminates. I told them that I would only consider to come back if the download speed improved for torrenting. I have to say that their prices are quite competitive. At the moment I pay a little more with Speedify but the download speed is not throttled.
Have been using Freedome for a few years, it's good. But I just found Speedify which is a VPN + connection bonder in one (merges WiFi and 4G in to one connection)
Maybe this can help: You should try using Speedify as the VPN to share with Connectify Hotspot.
True, forgot to add some more information. NordVPN and ProtonVPN have never actually worked, Speedify has worked though; Windows 7 x64, will try to launch in safe mode. On Event Viewer it gives me a error as for the crash for both NordVPN and ProtonVPN so I'm unsure if it's something blocking it.
Thanks for the assistance.
For all those using Speedify VPN - if you have more than one connection available that you can connect to, it will use all active connections at once. Including WiFi, cellular, wired Ethernet, Bluetooth, etc.
Nice for increasing bandwidth and staying always online.
Great question. The VPN is Speedify and by default it could be using either (auto). I forced it to TCP and to UDP and no luck with either. I did discover something, however. When my Carrier is set to Google Fi, Hangouts Dialer works fine over VPN and can make calls. However my Carrier is usually set to Orange as that is my preferred network (no LTE here on Google Fi and data costs 5x as much). Hangouts Dialer used to work fine with my Carrier set to Orange as long as I VPN to a supported country.
So I managed to finally make it work. I used a Speedify VPN on my laptop and shared it thru Connectify for my Switch to connect to.
My brother can now join my games. However, am still unable to join his. At least we get to play now!
Hi - Cristian from Speedify here.
Per your point, /u/pdjudd, Speedify actually uses channel bonding technology to combine connections. The architecture includes servers in the cloud. Traffic to those servers is encrypted = VPN. So, it's a very nice combo: combining connections + VPN.
You obviously aren’t using a good VPN then. Stop using crappy free VPNs and you’ll have a good experience.
I pay $3 a month for Speedify and it works great(their torrent servers are slow but that shouldn’t matter for this)
Great assumption! I meant since LTE fluctuates. I've gotten those fake free "VPN's" removed from GPlay (mainly when they tried to copy logos for Nord and alike), but I've never heard of Speedify, and wouldn't take them over PIA, Nord, Mulvad, or even Cryptostorm. Less so if they don't have anonymous billing. I also point out to people that "free VPNs" aren't really "private".
On top of that, I have NetGuard to block apps from internet access at all, so that's taking my "VPN slot" on my phone. I'm fine with 480p though, since NewPipe allows for threads, so it is still pretty fast. I'm also usually on WiFi anyways.
If you're okay with watching on your computer or hooking up your laptop to a TV, you could get and a paid VPN. They're typically only a few bucks a month and a greatly discounted when you buy a year at a time. Personally, I use Speedify. All you do is change your location to one that isn't blacked out and you're good to go
My school’s actually good at getting rid of VPNs. I currently use Speedify but have used AirVPN, PIA, and NordVPN before(all paid versions) and none of them worked. None of the crappy ones that spy on you in the chrome web store work either.
Also I never have speed issues on the network except for when they throttle it. So it’s their filtering procedures that make it bad.
I don't think they have SPL games though I haven't checked. I should have made it clearer that I was referring to EPL teams really. Apologies.
I've tested with PIA, Speedify, TweaknewsVPN and also SmartSNSProxy instead of a VPN.
Depends on the VPN. Speedify () for example makes a deal of how it can utilize wifi and cellular at the same time. So the answer really depends on what VPN you are using.
Still, I agree, 1Tb seems excessive.
Charter's nodes, and their lines in general, are absolute shit unfortunately. I used to use my phone and Speedify to help balance the packet loss. It's basically a VPN/load balancing program. I think you can use their packet-loss prevention without bonding to a separate connection. Worth a shot!
I played all day today. I tried this free vpn called Speedify and was able to get ~190ms earlier. Cut my latency in half. Huge improvement but still noticeable. I tried to logon Asia as well but i guess still not up at the moment. Will be keeping tabs.
I tried out that Speedify thing that I've been seeing advertised on . It combines two or more internet connections together through a VPN to give you faster speed. It works pretty well. All you need is one internet pathway into your computer for each connection in order for it to work (e.g. ethernet plus wifi). It's free to try, but you have to pay $90 per year or $20 per month for unlimited data, and you can only have one computer using it at a time (though they apparently also sell some software that can turn a computer into a hotspot to share the connection).
Uncap as in? Like get bandwidth without paying for it? Not very legal, could land you in trouble. If you really need a few extra megabits, maybe setup a high gain antenna and grab WiFi from around your area, and setup something like Speedify maybe? This can use a few slow links to make one fast one. If your ISP is throttling you, use a VPN which can get you much better speed. If you mean something else please explain
This is Alex from Connectify. Speedify has per adapter usage limits, so you can set the 30 GB cap on that adapter (maybe set it a little lower for safety) and it will stop using it when it hits the cap. The computer can share the virtual Speedify adapter by running router software such as Connectify Hotspot.
I'm a big fan of Ethernet, you can use USB Ethernet cards to get another 2 such adapters on your computer.
The PEPlink stuff has a good reputation as a load balancer. As a load balancer it can split your traffic, per-socket, between multiple connections. But it can't spread a single socket between connections. So it's good at speeding up bittorrent (50 sockets per file), but useless for Netflix (a typical HD movie is 3 GB over a single socket) or anyone who uses a VPN (which actively combines all your traffic, including bittorrent back down to just one socket).
I hope that helps.
This can be done other ways using a channel bonding VPN. That's pretty much what Speedify ends up doing. Connectify also has dispatch, which load balances multiple WAN gateways.
1- Download a VPN called Speedify.
2- Install it and if it prompts you to install a certain windows security thing let it install it.
3- Go to and get yourself a temp email.
4- Create an account with the temp email.
5- Connect to Italy for best possible ping. If Italy gets you shit ping for whatever reason try France next then Germany or Netherlands.
Repeat steps 3 and 4 everytime the quota is reached.
Btw, what was your season 2 Rocket League rank? Maybe we can form a team.
Edit: format is fucked cuz I'm on mobile.
If you were to take the approach of a VPN you could combine those two connections into one very fast connection. There are a couple of solutions for this. Most notably is Speedify which already has a mobile app to combine Wi-Fi and Mobile data to make a super fast connection. Surprisingly enough, they even managed to get that to work on iOS
Seeing as the GS 5/6/7 have the feature to combine Wi-Fi and Mobile data baked in by default (however, it's removed by pretty much every carrier except T-Mobile) I imagine there is a way to do it without a VPN. That is, unless Samsung also tunnels the two connections to a server. I'm not exactly sure how Samsung does it (i.e. whether it's packet switched or all the traffic is tunneled).
However, usually dual SIM phones can only access 3G and LTE from the first SIM while the second SIM is restricted to 2G for calls and texts. So, I doubt this is possible.
I use an app called Speedify to bond both wifi and cellular to increase my internet speed. It works beautifully and is also a VPN service as well which allows me to select servers from more or less anywhere in the world. They have a Mac app too that offers a VPN that allows p2p. I mainly use it when I'm connected to free wifi hotspots or hotel wifi to give myself a secure connection whilst also speeding it up a fair bit if I have 4G. Only downside is you burn through your data pretty quick!
Well, I imagine that few people are foolish enough to actually have a direct AT&T plan in 2017. $50 a gig? How 'bout nah.
If you're serious about it, I know that a couple command lines in Linux, and a VPN, send data over the network in such a way, that the provider is unable to determine what type of device is being used.
But let's hope that Mint SIM doesn't take hardlines against tethering.
Back in my PAYG T-Mo days of yore, the tethering function on my Nexus 4 only worked on HTTPS sites that T-mobile's "buy tethering" page couldn't hijack. The HTTPS Everywhere add-on for Firefox helped a lot, and only a couple of HTTP-only sites like Amazon were left off limits. I wonder if this will be the same, 5+ years later.
If you're super nerdy, I've also read that command lines on the actual phone itself, coupled with a basic VPN like Speedify, will also disguise the data packets. Very sadly, phones can't tether a VPN connection out of the gate by default.
> Could a proxy server help with the delay? I've done it without Speedify and it works, but sadly does not work with any steam games.
You're going to have to elaborate on this.
As for the latency, it adds the hop to the vpn server. There's nothing you can do about it if the connections you are providing it are bad.
If transcoding is not available, they could try combining multiple connections to get more bandwidth - e.g. their home Wi-Fi & cellular data from a tethered phone. There's no need for any enterprise-type equipment for this; Speedify VPN is a nice app that does this on all platforms and from what we tested, it gets the best results when compared head-to-head with other VPNs: smallest lag and almost the best download rate - test is here:
Still experiencing the frames dropped? I really think Speedify VPN can help: there's a recent head-to-head test between that and other VPN solutions; here’s what we got with Speedify:
- lag was the same as when not using any VPN (the best),
- download bandwidth was 7% smaller (about the same as with IPVanish) and
- upload bandwidth was almost the same as when not using any VPN (the best).
Here’s the article with all test results on that and a video showing the actual Twitch stream quality .
I can send you a free license of Speedify to take it out for a spin if you want - let me know.
I use Speedify, all through a secure VPN. It's really cool! Definitely worth a look, the app is free and they offer 5GB a month for free.
Yeah, Speedify does seem a little shady considering it came out this year but I just need an on and off kinda deal. I was using AirVPN a while back when I torrented like a madman but now I just pay up cause I don't like dealing with variable speeds.
