I am using the MTNL 3G Jadoo datacard on my computer. The speed is normally not great, around 256 kbps, which is really nowhere close to the 3 mbps anticipated. But in the last couple of days the speed has sunk to about 15 kbps. Am wondering what to do and how to fix this. Is this because I have recently shifted to New Manglapuri in New Delhi? Is there anything I can do to solve this? Please help.

In most cases you should get ~2.5mbps. How is the signal strength on 3G ?

Right now I have none of the bars on the signal sign... last night there were two bars out of four. I don't know how else to measre the signal. So I guess this means my signal strength is low? How do I fix THAT?

Hi, sorry... this doesn't work on my OS. I have Ubuntu 12.04. Also am not using a mobile at all - am using a datacard.I have pinged, though, and it is pinging at 0.3 ms on an average....

Right. Anyway, given the fact that you're getting zero bars out of 4 means that the 3G bts is quite far from your place or is perhaps damaged (evidenced by the fact that you do get 2 bars at certain times during the day)Now to get your problem fixed, either visit eidgah exchange or call 1503 and hope for the best.

u can't unless you use a external antenna or go near the tower...if there is no coverage at all even external antenna won't have any signal to boost...
