So is anyone doing video conferencing over 3-4G?

My DSL is horrible 1Mdown 380K Up and considering going to mobile because of speeds.   My question would be around latency and jitter.

 

Thanks

I have the Thunderbolt and have been using the Fringe app for video conferencing.  Video Quality is grainy and the audio lags about 1-2 seconds, but given that the Skype app for 4g still isn't available, it's an ok alternative even though it's designed for 3g.

Shawn thanks for the reply.    My question was more about using a hotspot in either 3-4G and doing desktop, small appliance video conferencing over the network not necessarily using a phone.   My issue where I live is broadband speed and sadly 3G is faster and 4G coming is much faster.   I was just curious with the latency and jitter if 4G could possibly fit the bill.

Hi bahamamills, welcome to the community. Are you asking about speed? With 3G, download speed average  600 Kbps - 1.4 Mbps,  upload  500 - 800 Kbps. 

 

4G average download speed is 2 to 5 Mbps, upload 5 to 12 Mbps and average latency 30ms. Keep in mind a latency below 50ms is equal to wireline connections.  

 

You can confirm coverage in your area at www.verizonwireless.com/coveragelocator

 

To read more about our 4G network go to www.verizonwireless.com/4g

 

We do have great 3G coverage in Bahamas, NC and a 14-day trial period so you can try the service yourself without any obligation.

 

Thanks. Have a great evening!

Thanks Gina,   I will wait for the 4G rollout and try the wireless service to replace my broadband.   I understand the speed portion but was more interested in the experiences with Latency and Jitter and impact on Video Conferencing if any.
