Cap for upload and download?

Hi, with Rain and Cell-C fixed LTE/A - does uploads use up part of your cap?
Interested in using this as a backup to ADSL for security applications, but not sure if viewing CCTV footage remotely will chew through my data?

Yeah, would be interested to see what the consumption is like. Also not streaming all the time, only when checking in and so on. Probably not going to be much then.

It depends on his setup.

If he has 720p cameras it will upload at that resolution too. 1080p would use even more.

If it was adsl. Max upload woulda been limited to 1meg. Then not use more per minute... but LTE can do 5 or 10meg upload.

No.

Few if not none would transmit full RAW streams for each camera

Would depend on the encoding,and many DVRs throttle/scale the streams back by bitrate/frames

Will still depend on his setup though.. If he has basic cctv 640x480 (or those native 704 x 480 pixels). It's basically an SD feed. Compressed would be maybe 1 or 2megabyte per minute. This runs fine over almost any ADSL line.

HD ready feed, 1280x720 compressed would be quite a bit more data. At least double the amount. maybe 2 or 3 megabyte per minute.
Full HD feed of 1920x1080 even compressed would be alot of data. I know some adsl lines struggle with those cameras, cause the upload of 1meg (if it's a 10mbit download / 1mbit upload. or 80kb per second to 100kb per second on upload) is simply not good enough unless the camera is set to 10fps or 15fps to lessen the bandwidth needed.

LTE obviously has no issues uploading huge amount of data. 3mbit or 5mbit. Heck, you could prolly do 4K uploads via youtube it should be fine
