    Does anyone knows if the time chosen to use SKYPE or FaceTime ( ie: sunday might be better than a normal working day) with 3G network has any influence on the quality of the video?
    Tanks for tour advice!!

    No. Not realistically. You might see small performance increases during non peak times, but other than that its not really noticeable. Its all about signal strength

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    I've just been away for a few days so was using 3G. Although I didn't use skype I did notice response times in the mornings and during the day were worse than that at night, so I have a feeling that it may effect the quality of the video depending on when you use it. Someone else may have a more definitive answer here I hope.
