I recently got a 3G connection. It can be pretty darn fast, I am currently enjoying 10Mbit down stream (but a mere 1.5Mbit up stream). However, the theoretical maximum is 32Mbit down and about 5Mbit up so I figured I’d try to boost the connection a bit.
Now, I can tweak my network settings and I can try to get a better signal. I’ll do both, starting with the signal. I have found two ways of doing this:
- Get a USB extension to move the modem (with built in antenna) to a better spot
- Get an actual external antenna to boost reception and thus, hopefully get better performance.
