The Propel 7 service features powerful compression and data metering, giving Windows laptop users the ability to save data when browsing or roaming on 3G and 4G mobile networks.

Leveraging client-to-cloud technology, Propel 7 is architected to deliver maximum data savings and performance on all mobile broadband connections. Improved data compression technology delivers up to 80% savings on most types of Web content, allowing users to browse more without exceeding their data cap.  Additionally, Propel 7 software provides a speed boost for users who are browsing on congested networks or who are in marginal signal areas.

“In total, laptop users consume twice as much data as smartphones.  There are 94 million laptops on mobile networks globally using 159 million GB of data each month”, said Mike Samboy, Propel VP of Sales and Marketing.  “Users need relief from data caps, overage fees and high roaming charges, and mobile operators need a method for effectively delivering all of this traffic.  Propel 7 offers a simple, elegant solution for both.”

Propel 7 software is especially useful to laptop users roaming internationally.  It reduces the amount of data needed to download photos, text, email, and other common Web content by up to 80%, allowing roaming users to stay connected while minimizing expensive international roaming charges.

The new version of Propel software offers mobile operators and Internet service providers an easy-to-deploy solution that works within their existing network infrastructure to help minimize bandwidth consumption and improve their users’ Internet experience. Propel offers service providers both cloud and premises-based solutions to meet any network needs.
