If both the H3 and phone are on the same wireless LAN connection, then the internet is only used for authentication. All the video traffic remains on the local LAN. 1mbps internet or less should be fine unless Dish completely prevents a connection below certain bandwidth.

Yes I would give it a try you as he said last I knew the internet is only needed for authentication then is not used.
