Re: Faster data speeds


Hi emmabehan

Having E constantly on your screen means your signal/coverage strength is hovering around 2G.
Is the 02 Reception poor in your area?
If you take a Data speed test like the others above on this thread - what kind of reports are you getting?

Data Speed & Signal Strength are different, i feel like perhaps you would prefare your reception/coverage to be at least 3G as opposed to Edge... or am i bathing in misinterpretation!

Re: Faster data speeds

once i submit the info and press reset all of the info that I've submitted dissappears.

 

Emma you don't press Reset AFTER you enter the settings. You press it BEFORE.   Once you enter the settings it automatically stores it. Just exit preferences.

Re: Faster data speeds

Hi there,

I have noticed that the data in my phone is always so slow (E), never reaches the high speed (H or H+). While it used to do before. So I am surprised that we are supposed to get faster data speeds and I´m experiencing the opposite. I wonder if I´m the only one experiencing that issue?

Thanks

Re: Faster data speeds

Is 3G switched on ? Do you EVER get 3G ? Do you get good speed on wifi ?

Wifi is irrelevant here.

Re: Faster data speeds

Have you checked your phone settings to see if by any chance the settings have gone from GSM/WCDMA to GSM only? What phone are you using?

Wrong. It is totally relevent.

Re: Faster data speeds

How is it relevant to carrier data speeds (2G/EDGE 3G/HS[D]PA etc.)?

Re: Faster data speeds

Its relevant to the phone's own ability to receive or process the data from the carrier or wifi.

Re: Faster data speeds

They are different communications channels/subsystems.

And the channel rather than the CPU/SoC data processing will always be the bottleneck.

As such I disagree that the wifi speed is in any way relevant to the query here about carrier data throughput/rates.

But I'll leave it at that as the theoretical discussion is not really answering the question posed.
