Nice tips. I have an issue, don't know if it applies to just me. When I use apps like Instagram, facebook or generally open my browser I tend to have a 'very strong' browsing network, but at the time when I try video call with IMO the network disappers immediately. I don't know if it's the network provider or app. Is there a way I can fix this?
