What We Do
Shoelace Wireless’ mission is to make mobile Internet faster, cheaper and more reliable. We develop cooperative networking technologies that enable a mobile user to aggregate all wireless networks available to a single mobile device and/or on multiple nearby devices. Our approach is software-only and requires no changes to the current communication infrastructure.
Our first Android app, VideoBee, allows a user to boost mobile video and share it with a nearby device.
Our second Android app, Netup, will boost all traffic on a single device by intelligently combining Wi-Fi and cellular.
