Internet Connection Requirement

Does Survey Solutions work on 2G? Please tell me particularly about Interviewer application!

The theoretical maximum data throughput of 50 kbit/s of 2G or about 100kbit/s for 2G EDGE is sufficient for stable operation of Survey Solutions Interviewer app. However, we strongly advise our users to test the connectivity because the real rates of data transfer might be very different from theoretical or those announced by provider.

Please also note that Interviewer app does not require continuous internet connectivity. Data can be collected offline for the extended period of time and the connection is required only when the data from a tablet needs to be send to a server. We have users working on remote islands of South Pacific who go without connectivity for several weeks. Of cause, we recommend to synchronize with the server as often as possible.
