Why is it so slow? I started out at about 1.3Mbps and they are saying they can't do anything about it but wait for a response from level 2 support. It is starting to seem like the cheaper service I have for 2.5GBs and being throttled there after to 256Kbps and slower. I have gotten these slow speeds before I even hit 2.5GBs are they throttling like all other services? If so then they would be worth it. They say unlimited with soft cap of 50GBs not 2.5GBs and I didn't see anything about throttling does anybody know what is going on? Also as a note I have the latest firmware that came with the latest software update on the franklin u602 also I have updated the data profile several times and it has done nothing only once it has when I first got it yesterday.

too many people using your tower?
Sprint's totally inadequate infastructure to support the number of devices it sells?
Nothing to do with Millenicom it's all Sprint. You are not being throttled....it's all they've got in your location.

During times of low use by others, I can get 1M down and .80 up. But most of the time I get this slow speed, High ping service.

Well almost no one uses the tower I use but then I guess it could go much faster. Anyways I got it going good again it connected to a good ha so I then said ha ha. I get a maximum now of 1.3Mbps it just isn't stable. The latency gets slow at times and goes fast as .6Mbps

cbobby it's unfortunate you are apparently on a loaded down tower. Sprint on a good tower is awesome IMO although the hogs sometimes limit me when they are streaming video

Yes it is Verizon and they have been driving me nuts lately. The only tower in my area is near a community college. I can tell when the students are back. Smart phones are choking the fiber line from the tower. No other choice around her.

Dialup is 18kb down. No DSL and no cable. Did Hughesnet back in 2009. Too much latency for my wife to work remotely.

The setup I had through Millenicom worked great and I don't blame them. It's the phone companies selling services that they cannot support.

Regards,

Joe

cbobby is there any other service available to you? Perhaps Verizon? The broadband is there and the majority are getting reasonable performance for wireless.

I was looking forward to getting VZ. When their coverage map lit me up for Extened LTE, I ordered the VZ service from Millenicom. Got the package and had 0 signal at my house. I took it in the car and 1/4 mile away I got full signal, but as soon as I hit my driveway it disapeared...not even 3G.

The Sprint tower upgrade map shows multiple upgrades - speed and data capacity upgrades-- having occured at nearby towers, with more planned "in the next 6 months". So far the tower that I use is not on the list. But a couple that cover the same area as my tower, but on the other side...ie the other 1/2 of the circle of coverage...have been upgraded. So apparently I'm not the only one in this area who has been getting poor service. There are now more times during the day when I get close-to or above 1M Down.
Not now though.

Well I can easily tell you these speed tests aren't always accurate no matter which one you use. As sprint ever since I have used it has its speed go up and down and is almost never stable.
Here is the most stable test I have had thus far:
Download Speed: 941 kbps (117.6 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 300 kbps (37.5 KB/sec transfer rate)
Latency: 157 ms
Mon Sep 10 2012 16:52:16 GMT-0500 (Central Daylight Time)
I am in a very rural area where everyone around me can get highspeed internet. But in the center where I am I can not. They all just went around me. Anyways my speeds on my download manager go up as high as 200KBps and a little higher but never stays there it stays as high as 170-180KBps. Just got to get lucky enough to get a good home agent or even customize it to the best home agent you can get.

Not sure if this will help anything but I was told by millenicom to switch my adapter to home network instead of public. So I did so and it seems that my speeds went back up. They were extremely slow for no reason then I switched it to home and they went back to normal but still aren't perfectly stable enough for speed tests:
Download Speed: 941 kbps (117.6 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 606 kbps (75.8 KB/sec transfer rate)

But oddly enough they are mostly stable enough to get almost 1Mbps like I am suppose to get in such an area where everyone else has high speed and doesn't need mobile broadband.

I'm not sure what you mean by - switched my adapter to home network instead of public -- what adapter?

If you have windows 7 then it is in the network and sharing page. If you see a bench then it is public. If you see a house it is home.

»Terrible sprint speeds...tweaks?

Terrible sprint speeds...tweaks?
Since I got my aircard a few years ago, It has gotten considerable slower as time went on. It is now in the ballpark of .3 down and up give or take. Usually, its slower than dial up and won't load any pages. I have been told its a congestion issue and regularly request refunds for my monthly bill. So far, I haven't paid for service in about 4 months...and yet Sprint finds this perfectly acceptable. Rather than solve the problem, they just keep me on for free. That's fine, as it is functional occasionally. I would rather try to fix the problem. Anyone know what I can do? I have a 597U aircard.

Seems like my connection is working good enough to actually report the actual speed I have almost: Download Speed: 1246 kbps (155.8 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 441 kbps (55.1 KB/sec transfer rate)
Latency: 196 ms

But the speed doesn't stay that fast. That was just a quick jolt it usually settles around 180 and fluctuates from 155-180KBps for some odd reason. I had virgin mobile and it was staying stable around 180 and didn't ever fluctuate too much.
