Hi Dzung,

 

Thanks for your feedback.

You are right, this API only supports one connection. I have been
thinking about the usefulness of multiple connections but in practice
isn't it that the developer/user would only be interested in the
'current' connection type that is being used by the application as
opposed to knowing that multiple connections exist e.g. "what is my
current connection type"? If you are saying that multiple connections
would be used simultaneously by the same web app then it makes sense to
consider this in the API.

 

Regards,

Suresh

Suresh,

 

>From this API, basically there is just Connection Type and it is up to
the user to determine connection speed from the type. This seems
reasonable enough, beside in some cases I think you might get multiple
connections such as 3G and WiFi or Ethernet simultaneously. 

 

Thanks

Hi all,

 

As per my ACTION-357, please find attached a draft spec for Network Info
API.

As discussed during the F2F, the proposed draft is just a formalization
of the proposal from [1] with minor changes.

 

Let me know if you have any comments, before we begin to advance this
further.
