Hi all,I have Huawei K4505 HSPA+ 28.8Mbps usb modem.I am using Reliance 3G.I am getting -89dBm/-91dBm signal of HSPA+ network from my Huawei K4505.I am staying in 2nd floor.DOWNLOAD 2.57Mb/secUPLOAD 1.15Mb/secAverage download speed 300-430 KB/sec.I really expected more from Reliance 3G.:(I think it is for poor network coverage.I have Desktop.I cannot move it.Should I buy external antenna for Huawei K4505 ?

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.

Then using an extension cable wouldn't be of much help unless you choose to hang your dongle outside the window :p

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 ?
