The World’s Fastest File Transfers Just Got Faster 

Using MASV Multiconnect, you can transfer files with multiple internet connections. Whether you’re sharing files over wifi, cellular data like 5G, satellite internet like Starlink, or a hardwired ethernet connection, Multiconnect bonds multiple internet connections to guarantee the fastest uploads possible.

How much time you will save depends on the speed of your respective connections. For example, if you have access to a 5Gbps or 10Gbps connection, your transfer speeds using Multiconnect will be significantly faster. To calculate your estimated transfer time, use the following equation:

File size in GBs x 1024 x 8 / mbps / = X/3600
