Mobile Networks: 3G with EUL/HSUPA in Service


Like ADSL the 3G data network is asymmetrical. The download link is considerably greater than the up-link. Qrodo is broadcasting video streams and ergo mostly interested in the up-link. We have broadcasted events using Turbo 3G services where the uplink were merely 150 kbit/s. However, in reality we require a 3G network with Enhanced Uplink (EUL) also refered to as High-Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA), they deliver up to 1.4 Mbit/s. The 3G operators often brand it as Mobile Broadband Pro, or 3G Turbo Plus and it is availible in many big cities around the globe, both metered and unlimited. The monthly fee for unlimited services is around €30-40/month. Check if your operator is on the list, then look at the coverage for your area, and finally run a broadband test at the venue to make sure you are ready for a successful event.
