Novatel 720 - Slow speeds

When I first got the Novatel the speeds were always 1.5+ for the past several months they have been only 200k, my thought was that they added so many users that the tower was overloaded. Last night the speeds were back where they were originally but this morning at 5:00 am back slow again. It is possible I am bouncing to another tower? Can I lock onto the closest one? My dbm was always mid 70's and not mid 90's. I am running an external antenna now....

Try putting it in EVDO-Only mode. Since you have a 720 you will need Novatel's connection manager to do it. The download can be found at the bottom of this page: »shop2.sprint.com/en/software_dow···20.shtml

You can have both SmartView and this installed at the same time. Just use one or the other after you lock it in.

Yes, I have tried that already and forced EVDO only. The weird thing is, my download is .18 but my upload is 1.6! Any other ideas?
