It would be nice if the local ISPs could guarantee a minimum rate for
upload and download. That way, less hassle: I would just set it a bit
less than those values for sqm-qos, and I would be done with it.

In any case, I moved from 5000ms latency to approximately 500ms under
load, and honestly, I'm fairly happy for now. The mobile providers
could engineer their infrastructure so that there would be less
latencies variation.
