Alexa requires more than 128kbps to work.  Everything you speak, is sent to a remote server to be understood, including commands.  Using the app to toggle a light manually might work with a significant delay.  

Whenever you're out of range of a Wi-Fi network and start using your mobile data, the Alexa app will run just fine on your mobile connection. If you want to use an Echo device with mobile data, you need to use a hotspot device or set up your phone as a hotspot and connect the Echo to that.

 Amazon's Alexa requires a working internet connection to access all the different features it offers. What is this? But you can still use Alexa with a mobile hotspot, or as a Bluetooth Speaker even without an internet connection.

Hope you  get the Answer.
Have a Nice time.
