We boost the reliability of your broadband connection by seamlessly switching to your smartphone’s 3G/4G when it fails. The consequences of an outage can be catastrophic. Email stops working, tills can't process payments, you can't complete sales transactions; your business can grind to a halt and on average costs you over £3,000 a year.

How does it work?

  • A small Boosty device plugs into the back of your broadband Wi-Fi router via an ethernet cable
  • A BoostyLink app is installed on one or more smartphones which connect to your broadband router's Wi-Fi as normal
  • When your broadband fails, Boosty seamlessly switches traffic to one of the smartphones in the office 3G/4G connection, and back when service is restored
  • Your IP address remains the same whether traffic is going over fixed broadband or a smartphone
  • Supports up to 16 smartphones in the office

Efficient Mobile Data Use

Boosty uses your smartphone's mobile data sparingly;

  • Only when your broadband connection fails
  • Only when the BoostyLink app is active on your smartphone
  • Only for devices you choose are important to your business e.g. your till, but not guest Wi-Fi
  • Up to a maximum data cap you specify on each smartphone
  • When a data cap is reached, Boosty instantly chooses an alternative smartphone

What do I get?

  • A small Boosty device and quick install guide
  • 12 months' service and support
  • Power supply and Ethernet cable
  • A fixed (static) but shared IP address which allows TCP/UDP port forwarding

Why is Boosty different from other 4G failover solutions?

  • No need for expensive 4G modems
  • No need for expensive 4G data SIM sitting unused most of the time
  • Constant IP address
  • Only important devices use 4G data, meaning faster speeds / reduced 4G data consumption
  • No tethering required
  • Installs in seconds

What do I need?

  • A broadband Wi-Fi router with spare Ethernet (LAN) port
  • A power source for your Boosty device; via an unused USB port on your Wi-Fi router, or using the supplied USB power adaptor
  • At least one smartphone (running Android 5 / iOS 8 minimum) connected to your broadband router's Wi-Fi
  • Good 3G/4G mobile reception and sufficient mobile data allowance to cover any broadband outage
  • A broadband connection running at up to 72Mbps

Boosty is simple to install but in a small number of cases may require some configuration.
