I just read about this new AIS service for Android phones.  Anyone know anything about it?

Info on AIS webpage.  It just allows you to combine an AIS 4G plus AIS Wifi connection to get faster speed versus using a 4G connection or just an AIS Wifi connection.  Your phone has to support this technology (being able to support the 4G and Wifi connection at the same time) which many models do not yet....most make either a 4G connection or Wifi connection at a time; not both at the same.   The 1Gb speed is the perfect world/laboratory environment max speed.

OK.  Thanks for the reply.  This doesn't sound very useful even though my phone supports it.

I think some of the top-end Samsung phones have long had the "Download Booster" feature. This allows one to aggregate a mobile data and WiFi connection, under certain very limited circumstances. And some service providers have been offering this service, previously to off-load some data from their mobile network onto their WiFi network. There are also some third-party apps which attempt to do something similar.

It's like filling up a bucket with one "or" two water hoses.   Using two water hoses at the same time will fill up the bucket faster than just using one of the water hoses.

Unless both hoses are using the same restricted pipe from the main (international internet connection).

Not sure how apt that analogy is in this case?

 

The phone is having to do some aggregation (routing?), so it may or may not be able to utilize the full volume of both WAN connections? And, obviously, you can't really move around much.

 

Experiences seem so-so. This capability has been around for quite a few years.

Most new technologies have a lot of hype (advertising) which falls short of real world results.
