Stadia with a 4G router

Is there a minimum or recommended latency requirement for Stadia to work well at 1080p or 4k resolutions? Latency on 4G is around 30-50ms (in the UK), would that be enough for stable/fluid gameplay?

I have a 50mbps VDSL connection and the latency is pretty low (8-10ms), connected via Wi-fi at close range. What I'm wondering is, should I upgrade to a possible speed of 90-100mbps with a 4G router, or stick with a fixed line 50mbps connection?

I suppose another factor here is how close the nearest Google data centre is to where I live. Is there a way to find the location of this?

EDIT - there is one in London, according to this:

@cbdeakin There isn't any specifics on latency on the Stadia help center but it does specify "a reliable internet connection (10 Mbps or greater is recommended)". You already know lower latency is better so wouldn't recommend playing on a cellular connection but your mileage may vary I guess.

My opinion is your ping is going to be more important to your experience than raw speed here.
