Hi Everyone,

Today we are delighted to announce that signups for the DumaOS 3.0 beta are now open – this will be gradually rolled out to everyone who signs up, over time.

This is a big step. It means that after many months of hard work, we are now ready for you guys to begin testing 3.0 on your DumaOS powered routers.

What is in DumaOS 3.0?

It’s named 3.0 for a reason. It marks the next generation of DumaOS, our router operating system. Not only will 3.0 come with a whole bunch of new features for your router, we have also overhauled a tonne of things under the hood which will make it far easier for us to get new features to you in the future.

So far, we have announced five of the eight major features coming in 3.0. You can read more about each of them here:

  • Geo-Fencing: draw multiple Geo-Filters of any shape around your favourite server banks
  • Application QoS: prioritize the traffic that matters the most to you by allocating bandwidth by application type e.g. gaming, streaming etc.
  • Connection Benchmarkrun a pure test of your Internet line to find out how stable your ping is and if you are getting your full bandwidth speeds.
  • Traffic Controllerblock any applications, ports or devices from accessing the Internet.
  • Ping Heatmap: discover the servers that give you the best ping for your favourite games, no matter when you play.
  • Rapp Store: your new hub for installing upcoming features as soon as they’re ready.

Further feature reveals will be posted on our blog here: https://netduma.com/blog/

When will I get the beta?

When making a major software update like 3.0, it’s normal for things to not be perfect at the start. So as much as we would love each and every one of you to get your hands on 3.0 right now, it would be risky for us to do it in one go.

Instead we will be phasing the roll-out, starting off with a small number of testers. Once things are looking good, we will add some more, then more, gradually increasing until everyone who has signed up has received the upgrade.

When we are ready for you to join the beta you will get an email into your inbox with instructions on how to join. Please be patient – we will email you when we are ready.


We want to thank you for your support and patience during the development of 3.0. We are very aware that it has taken time. But it really has been worth it. It has allowed us to take DumaOS to the next level. Work is already underway on 3.1 and we’re working on some seriously big features that will give you even more control over your lag and your network.

We hope you have fun testing 3.0.
