New SimplyBonding Throughput Tiers


SimplyBonding is a hosting service that allows you to bond multiple 3G, 4G, cable, and/or DSL internet connections into one super fast, super reliable, unbreakable connection with minimal equipment. Unlike failover or load balancing, a bonded connection takes multiple internet connections and COMBINES them. The resulting connection is both faster and more reliable: if you have 3 internet connections that are bonded together and one goes down, your connected devices and apps will never know there was a failure - even apps that maintain persistent connections!

The concept of bonding (AKA aggregating) internet connections has been around for years, but it has historically been prohibitively expensive and very complicated to deploy and manage. SimplyBonding solves both of those problems. Unlike other bonding options that require two expensive bonding routers in two locations with access to high-speed internet (one at the location where you need the bonded connection, and another at a secondary location with a high-speed internet connection to bond the connections and send the data back to the primary location via VPN), SimplyBonding eliminates the need for this dual-router setup. SimplyBonding requires just ONE router, which will be configured to connect to our hosted service - WE handle the bonding and VPN for you, and 90% of the setup and configuration is eliminated.

With a low start up cost and new tiered monthly throughput caps that include UNLIMITED bandwidth and usage, SimplyBonding is the most affordable and hassle-free way to ensure that your business has the fastest and most reliable internet connection possible.

Current SimplyBonding customers wanted more options, and new tiered pricing is available today! Using the simple setup tool, users can now select a SimplyBonding Throughput from 5Mbps to 40Mbps. The new tiers let customers decide just how much bandwidth is required. Users who will be video streaming from a Max On The Go with SpeedFusion can opt for the 5Mbps tier. 5Mbps is more than enough to stream an HD video to YouTube or uStream, and the unbreakable connectivity from running multiple bonded cellular connections means even if one carrier is overloaded or drops completely, your video will continue on without interruption! Larger offices can opt for the 40Mbps tier. This is plenty of bandwidth to run dozens of VoIP phones and critical systems like security systems, e-mail, and more.

With SimplyBonding, not all traffic is forced through that 5 to 40Mbps pipe either. With powerful Outbound Policies and easy to follow instructions, you can set just that critical traffic to run over the bonded connection. Less critical traffic (YouTube or Netflix) can be left to the existing internet connection, and mission critical devices like PoS terminals, select workstations, VoIP phones, and more, can be run on the bonded connection.
Watch our demonstration video below showing an unbreakable SimplyBonding connection! If this router was uploading, or streaming a video, though the quality of the stream would have reduced due to lower bandwidth with 1 less connection, the actual stream would have never failed! A typical single internet connection would have meant that video and stream would have completely stopped. Video streaming in remote locations, on multiple 3G/4G cellular connections, is now possible thanks to the improved bandwidth and unbreakable connectivity as long as just one carrier stays active at a time!
