Does Mycloud work if internet isn't?

Hi all

Thinking of getting a 2TB mycloud to put movies on, access via android phone while i’m at home and send to tv via chromecast.

My internet connection is poor, 1.2meg at best, often sub1meg and often dissapears completely.

During these times of no reception, will my mycloud still work and be able to be accessed by my phone? Or does the mycloud need to talk to a WD server somewhere in order to work?



It will still work on internal LAN/WLAN, access from local pc, tv and wifi connected phone etc.

You will only need the internet for remote access. Firmware update could be done with Internet or separate file uploaded to the nas locally.
