    Multicasting via 3G & 4G

    Hello

    We have in Sri Lanka several Internet providers
    They sell a dongle and you have Internet with this dongle.
    They use mostly 3G and are now talking of 4G bandwidth

    If I am an Internet Provider,
    can I then do Multicasting of a streaming Television Channel using this Technology ?

    I am told that multi-casting is not possible using 3G and 4G dongles.
    Is that correct information ?

    Regards
    Mettavihari

    There is a general rule of thumb to never use wireless Internet of ANY sort for audio or video broadcasting. Sometimes it works, but many times it does not. For incidental use, it may be all you have. For daily use, nothing beats wired connections.

    Other than that general warning, I don't know the answer to your question.
    Please direct all questions for me to the forum so that all can benefit.

    I use 4g to stream with all the time now...I have a vzw wifi and usually get between 3-5 mb/s upload...which is great....i use three cameras and vidblaster. I am very lucky I guess and in about 50 attempts now i have had no problems...

    I've seen people try to use it a few times and was spotty at best. As others have mentioned wired is going to be better. But there is some success in using something like a LiveU setup which is quite expensive. It uses several 3G, 4G? wireless cards for transmission. Several new products on the market like the Teradek cube. But those still mostly connect to a wireless router nearby with some 3G connections that look promising.
