Minimum Upload speed required5301

Hi all. I'm considering buying a Matterport for our real estate business and I have a quick question. I live in the mountains and our internet is primitive at best. Phone service (WiFi because it's the only way to get service)is even worse. Will I have enough speed to upload scans and download whatever else we need? I tested speeds today (Speedtest free app). Home speed is 11.51 for Download and 1.14 for uploads with 46 Ping.

If I go into town (only one red light)the best speeds are by the library. Download speed is 7.72, upload is 8.77 and PING is 69. I can always go to library to do my business (but what a bother)

We've been promised better internet, but it's been years... I currently have to put my real estate photos on a flash drive and take it to realtor because it took days (literally) to download.

Thanks for your input. Be warned that I am rather ignorant about internet speeds etc and have no real idea what ping etc means...

Welcome to the WGAN Forum.

1.14 Mbps upload would be so painful, you would return your Camera within 30 days, even if you loved it.

8.77 Mbps upload would be painful for me. Let's see what others say. If you had 8.77 Mbps, you could start your upload when you got home and (maybe) the model would upload by morning. The model would still need to process.

The challenge with going to the library is that you would need to be there for a long, long time.

You kinda sum it up when you say your move images via a flash drive.

Plus, my understanding is that the new Matterport Camera - Matterport Pro2 3D Camera - creates a bigger file than our Pro1 Camera. So, even more painful.

You are asking a great question about upload speed.

If you still want to go forward, double-check that Matterport will take the Camera back within 30 days, if you decide that uploading is just too painful.

Wish I had better news for you.

Best,

Dan

Well Dan, that bites. I can't tell you how frustrating my internet has been and how many times I've had the service guys come to the house. Is there any other way to work around this? Any ideas out there? Thanks again for your time!

If you're fine with leaving your ipad somewhere and letting it upload while you do something else then 8 megabits upload might make it work. As far as I know there is no minimum bandwidth requirement, it just might take longer.

Thank you wlee1684.

Besides the upload of the scans, is there any other time I would need to rely on decent internet speeds? How about the Realtors? Do they have to download to their computers and then upload into MLS etc (my ignorance is showing). They won't want a painful internet experience.

Thanks again!
