View Full Version : Multicasting via 3G & 4G

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 ?

I was never able to Stream in the UK using a 3G dongle as the quality of signal was always poor we have only just got 4G in the UK and the prices are far to prohibitive to even think of investing in a dongle for that.

Fixed Networking into a normal beroadband line would be you best bet!

It is really sad that Internet providers do not make more extended use of Multicasting.

It is far more economical and resource friendly than using standard unicast content distribution.
