Try asking one of your friends to get a laptop and then check the 3g signal at different places in your house and see if you get better speeds.

Signal strength -89 to -91 not looking that good. It should be ideally -77 to-81.
How many bar signal strength? if full signal may be the tower has limitation?
In a 28 mbps modem,one should get average 5 to 7 mbps from Reliance 3g.

Its not always the ISPs fault, could be the limitation from the file servers?

No dude, I think it is for bad network coverage.

oh boy! whats that 3.9G? :iomg:


regarding your problem...hmm..get an external antenna and i guess your dongle has external antenna support.

I am getting around 600-700KBps(though it also depends on the server from where you are downloading) full signal strength in reliance 3G.

Dude It is 'HSPA+' + MIMO.

Should I get external antenna or USB extension cable ?
