Wireless wide area networks (WWANs) are becoming ubiquitous across most geographic regions, enabling simultaneous coverage from multiple providers. WWAN channels exhibit both uncorrelated and correlated behaviour on a variety of levels. In this paper we examine the statistical properties of WWAN links, and illustrate the benefits in heterogeneity that can be exploited to improve statistical throughput and multimedia quality. Our results are based on real network measurements. We describe the design and implementation of a high quality multimedia streaming application that implements WWAN streaming optimisations utilising unequal error protection coding techniques, and we evaluate the performance over an operational WWAN network.
