I use mobile broadband from time to time and use a 1Mbit UMTS connection. This works fine for surfing the web or streaming music. However, when I try to surf the web and stream music both at the same time the music streaming seems to hog all bandwidth as the web surfing pretty much breaks down.
I'm thinking about investing in a router with QoS settings (which my current router lacks) in order to prioritize the web traffic but I am not sure it would help. I suspect using QoS settings on a WiFi-router only helps to prioritize the traffic within the intranet and as my problem is that an outside transmitter (Rdio in this case) is flooding my 1Mbit connection, the router QoS won't help. Before making the decision of investing in a mobile broadband capable router with QoS or not, I would like to know if my suspicion is correct or not? And, if it is correct, if there are other measures that can be taken?
