Re: What is a recommended Upload speed?

For Arlo Ultra, we recommend an average upload bandwidth speed of 4Mbps.

 

What is the minimum upload bandwidth speed required for Arlo Ultra? Was this article helpful?

Min upload speed use to be listed as 1 Mbs.... with the newer cameras Pro/Pro2/Q , IMHO, should be closer to 2.

Re: What is a recommended Upload speed?

Thanks Tom, I would think maybe more since it's 4k but yeah I would imagine 2Mb would be enough if it's a one  at a time thing but when 2 or more cams doing at the same time live viewing/recording then 2Mb's could be an issue in terms of lag and quality distortion..

Re: What is a recommended Upload speed?

With that just be aware you maximum upload speed will be different than your actual upload speed to the Arlo servers. For example I can get 10mb/s upload on speedtest.net when I test a server close by but once you select an overseas or different server speed can drop quite rapidly. For example connections to Europe my 10mb/s drops down to 2mb/s
