Data Connection Optimizer for Wi-Fi Connectivity
Welcome to the Data Connection Optimizer application from Cricket. This free application helps you save your mobile data allowance, provides the fastest connection speeds available, and extends data coverage where Wi-Fi is available. Additionally, Data Connection Optimizer gives you access to the world’s largest network of pre-qualified Wi-Fi hotspots including many of your favorite coffee houses, stores, and fast food restaurants. Once set-up, Data Connection Optimizer operates in the background – no user intervention is required.
Data Connection Optimizer improves the Wi-Fi connection manager that is included with the Android operating system by determining whether to connect to the cellular network or available Wi-Fi networks based on the quality of the connection. Data Connection Optimizer also takes care of the sign-in steps automatically for millions of pre-qualified public Wi-Fi hotspots.
