Going on Vacation this Summer? Tips for Using Your Videophone from Dr. Z

Summertime is around us — July 4th is the official start of vacation season…

Vacation takes many forms–driving on the road, hopping from one place to another–or you would go to one specific destination, staying at a beach house, or a hotel, or a rented house.

What videophone should you use? The ideal one would be the iPad2, followed by the iPhone, iPod Touch or the various Android models you see on our website (

The key to successful video calls while on the road is a good wifi connection. This is not guaranteed. One McDonalds may have it good while the next one won’t. One Marriott Courtyard may have it good while the next one won’t. It is hard to predict. A good video communication setup requires a good and robust wifi connection. You can test it with our bandwidth tool. Here is the link to it. If its low, then the video won’t look that good or may not work. Some wifi is free, some wifi you would have to pay.

If you are renting a beach house or a vacation house, most residential wifi connections are good. But some homes do not have wifi, so check in advance.

Dr. Z wishes you all a happy summer vacation. Drive carefully and safely.

Dr. Z cares about your communication access.
