Let's assume a private APN in NZ. Assume smartphone devices using IP-based connections, static IPs, each device is directly configured with one another's static IPs.
I'm curious to know if 2 mobile devices (MobileA and MobileB) connected to the same APN on the same tower (TowerA) will be routed directly to each other? Or will the senders (MobileA) traffic need to traverse to some sort of Central Office before returning along the same path to the receiver (MobileB)?
What about if there is a server (ServerA) in a branch office "near" the very same tower (assume same CO), same Telco/ISP as TowerA but using UFB side of the business. What is the datapath in this case for MobileA to ServerA? Local or could it potentially go halfway up the country and back?
Would this be any different for Voice?
Different for different Telcos?
