Internet Speed via. EVDO SLOW on touch pro!!!!

I have no idea why, but it takes forever, literally, to open a page, I checked my speed and it showed 51 kb/s. Shouldn't it be a LOT More!!!!!!!! Is there some thing wrong, I am running the tank rom (latest version) and can you give me all possible ways to make this go faster, all tweaks, etc. Thanks

Re: Internet Speed via. EVDO SLOW on touch pro!!!!

Check your signal strength. I can literally go from one spot in my apartment getting 20kb/s and move 10ft in any direction and get +/- 10kb/s. It's all about signal strength.

If you can give us more info like what are you doing for your speed test?(are you going straight to a site from your phone. Or are you hooked up through usb running internet sharing and doing a test on your computer browser)

Also go into your dialer and type in ##33284# and that will bring up "fieldtrial" if your dialer doesn't except codes then go into your windows directory with a file explorer and find fieldtrail.exe or fieldtest.exe forgot which one it's called, although I believe it's fieldtrial. This will give you the most accurate information as to your signal strength (the bars are a very bad representation imho).

Below is a brief overview on the readings, for EVDO speed I believe your going to want to go and select HDR from the left softkey menu. Also change your sample rate to 1. The link below will take you to a thread explaining pretty much anything you would need to know. I know it's not exactly what your asking for, but if you can get a signal strength to go with your speedtest numbers it might make things a bit more clear as to what is going on and why.

A: - ##33284# is the DEBUG menu. If you are prompted for a password,
enter 183729
. Under here you should look at the following 3 sections
(the closer to 0 you are, the better):
Rx Power
Rx Ec/Io
Rx FER
Here is a link to the radio thread which has more information, hopefully it will be helpful to you.

I go to DSL Reports and even if I am in a high coverage area, full service, I only get 100 kb/s! Is there a problem with my phone?

Re: Internet Speed via. EVDO SLOW on touch pro!!!!

on my touch pro in the DFW area i max out around 140 KBs with the FULL signal.
now with 2-3 bars i get between 70-120 KBs. So 100 isn't that bad, wait you are doing kilobytes instead of bits?
if your getting 100 kilobits then yeah that sucks haha
KB = kilobyte
Kb = kilobit

in witchita falls i can get 180 KBs all day while im at college

Then that's about where you're stuck out with Sprint's 3G network.

I've peaked out at 3 Mbps on one speed test up around college, but it couldn't sustain the speed.

Re: Internet Speed via. EVDO SLOW on touch pro!!!!

haha you would think.
but i think the main reason i get such great 3g speeds in witchita falls is because few people have sprint up there. which idk why, because att didn't have 3g up there till 4 months ago. which i laughed when my roommate's gf was like oh look we have 3g for our iphones!! :/ ...i've had it since i've been up there with sprint.

But less people up there with sprint means less strain on their network which means awesome tethering speeds for me

My avg speed is in my sig below. That should be your mark in judging how good your 3g from Sprint is doing
Though the ping wasn't that good lol. I avg 170 ping though best was 150 so far

Re: Internet Speed via. EVDO SLOW on touch pro!!!!

I tethered with PDANet/Stock ROM on Alltel TP and would get between 300KB-1000KB on RevA EVDO. Average would be about 500KB. I have tethered a Verizon 3g BB in the same area and get about 100KB-300KB. I have noticed that 3G is much slower in my area.
