    There is a new, high-tech real-time video surveillance system in the works. Verizon announced a business partnership today with a company called Lextech to market an advanced video surveillance system that operates remotely over Verizon's 3G and 4G networks. The technology allows live video feeds to your smartphone or tablet using Verizon's networks. Here's a snippet from the press release:
    This seems both useful and potentially scary as well. What do you guys think?

    So Verizon says that network traffic is too high and has to change to tiered pricing for its customers yet it is going to flood the network with video surveillance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This has already been possible for a while now using existing apps and cctv hardware. I have set this up for myself and some of my customers using apps such as Total Control, IP Cam Viewer, and a few others.

    The thing that sucks is you can do this kind of stuff already but with them pushing it to business's now they will suck up huge amounts of bandwidth on a "Security Pack" and we will get metered access at rediculas prices.

    Honestly, if LTE does not create value for me I'm going to trial Sprint's WiMax or AT&T's HSPA+. They'll make some more money on the right, lose more than that on the left, and pretty quickly they'll be alarmed over stagnating or declining revenues.

    I live in a quite rural area and Verizon has the best service. With Sprint I had no service and others have told me T-Mobile was even worse out here.
    Ah well.
