Which country are you in ? “MyAmazingDiscoveries”
I am based in Uk and live in Brighton, Brighton was voted worst data for mobile coverage in the Uk 2017. Nothing improved since then.
(Trains were voted no coverage most of the time
For me I am only trying to transfer back and fourth using LAN (local area network)
At best I can buy another router for purpose of LAN, the increase in performances appear not to be written down any where.
Only Dave has produced some results so far, which I am very greatful for.
Over all a newer up todate router would increase a margin or so for purpose of LAN transfer from WD wifi drive and over to the Ipad.
I think the one part which is slowing it down is the iPad Pro.
If i make the same transfer using LAN on a lap top i can half the times in my experiments.
This is still slow, I would compare this to using USB 1 for transfer speeds.
So my research suggests to me, no one to not many people run stock images and video from an outside drive to their mobile device over LAN.
Probably their use Cloud when their based in areas of say faster download and upload speeds.
Think it was on FB site where some one said their ipad downloaded at 200 mbs a second.
I have asked to confirm this as i would be surprised if that could be done using an iPad.
It might be i go back to desk top and plug in my drives and edit that way as advantages are you do not need to drag files over, they run live on the time line while staying on the external drive which is plugged in.
Give it 4 to 5 years and maybe the internet will catch up, or a method to use wireless drives improve to run like a desk top system.
So if anyone reading this post and thinking should I buy a ipad for editing.
Answer yes and no.
However i recommend you buy as big a drive as possible as backing up video when into the Gigs your going to be hard pushed when using the tablet enviroment.
Last thought “MyAmazingDiscoveries” my friend in the north lives in a place where they have download of 2 mbs at best on a landline.
He has ditched the landline and moved to mobile system and reaches 80 mbs download.
This might help with your possible dream home.
Other friend also up north asked off com about his speed and BT were forced to deal with this issue.
A direct line into the home on a hill give with fibre 300 mbs download.
Fibre was plugged in directly so no copper cable for the last 100 meters et, as no phone line existed in the first place.
