Fixmo has launched a tethering product called Fixmo Extend that is currently in free beta. Just like other tethering solutions, all you have to do is download the app on your device and the executable on your PC and you’re good to go. Features of Fixmo Extend include:
- A brilliantly intuitive user interface
- Handy charts and metrics help you monitor your data usage
- A simple download of mobile and desktop applications gets you connected quickly
- Beta includes 1000MBs of free data each month
It’s great to see more competition in the tethering solution space and we’re surprised Tether had the market cornered for so long. The app was pretty expensive and we didn’t see much competition in the space until now. While Fixmo Extend is in free beta, we’re sure it will be a paid product once it launches out of beta. The question is how much it will be and will it significantly cut into Tether’s sales. Other than time to market, the other big advantage that Tether has is Mac support.
