Connectify Gives Mobile Hotspot Capability to 3G/4G USB Modem Users
PHILADELPHIA, May 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Connectify, the emerging leader in easy-to-use wireless networking software, is offering 3G/4G USB modem owners a solution for getting the most value from their outdated hardware, especially when carrier contracts make device upgrades difficult. Today, more and more users must connect multiple devices to the Internet on-the-go, but are stuck paying monthly charges for USB modems that provide access to a single laptop only. With Connectify PRO, any 3G/4G USB modem instantly has the capability to provide Internet to multiple devices just like the latest mobile hotspot hardware, but at a fraction of their cost.
“More than ever, consumers rely on mobile Internet to provide access for all of their devices,” said Connectify CEO Alex Gizis. “While most of us now carry around tablets, smartphones, and other Internet-ready devices, getting only one laptop online with a USB modem has become increasingly insufficient.”
In a recent study, 67% of Connectify PRO users reported that they primarily use the app to share a 3G/4G USB connection as Wi-Fi with e-readers, tablets, and other laptops, eliminating the need to break contractual obligations in order to upgrade their mobile broadband device. The figures also show that Connectify PRO is being used in over 146 countries to unlock the power of single-device USB modems, giving users around the world secure Wi-Fi connectivity over 3G/4G mobile broadband.
Highlights of Connectify PRO include:
- Improved Support for Mobile Broadband Cards: Connectify PRO has been working with leading device manufacturers to provide improved compatibility with a wide-variety of USB modems.
- Firewall Controls for Connected Devices: Unavailable on hardware hotspot devices, Connectify PRO’s simple firewall controls allow users to control whether each client can get on the local area network, and/or use the Internet connection
- “Fling” Wi-Fi File Transfer: Flinging files to iPads, smartphones, and other mobile devices has never been easier. Just drag a file onto the appropriate device in the ‘clients’ tab, and Connectify lets any web-enabled device download it from your unique Connectify “Fling” Homepage.
