    right now all i get is 11Mbps and that is all i have ever gotten, someone over at alldroid however claimed to be getting 54Mbps, im wondering is there anything specifically you can do that will increase it to 54Mbps, like a setting or a specific kernel or something, any advice?

    and i tried that particular method of installation and i still had 11Mbps

    ***As a warning the method from alldroid that i linked to conflicts with chevyno1's patcher so dont do it if you have chevy's right now, i had to completely remove all traces of chevy's to get that one to work, but still 11Mbps***

    Speed, latency etc is all based on your location (coverage). Some areas are totaly crap, some are "okay" and some are excellent.

    I think your only solution is to physically move to a better area.

    i know that is a factor but the type of signal the wifi tether is putting out could be causing it to be lower than the actual 3G signal, for example wireless b outputs 11Mbps, wireless g outputs 54Mbps, and wireless n outputs 100Mbps, so just like a router limits your speeds the wifi tether could be doing the same thing, im just wondering if there is a way to possibly improve the speeds

    Ah, I see what your getting at now. Well you have to understand that the WiFi Tether program only uses the WiFi for the connection between your phone and the PC or whatever is leeching from the phone. I'm guessing it uses a different chip or technology for the 3G/EVDO network.

    The Phone to cell tower connection is probably different and I doubt you could change that, at least easily.

    What does it matter? You probably even don't top 2 mbps on Verizon EVDO.

    I got 3mb today. But I don't see speeds getting much higher than that. But I've been surprised before! For example, overclock, and the ability to tether wirelessly in the first place! Interesting topic

    In the end, it's not going to matter. Probably a good 75% of the internet US residents won't see "true consistent" download speeds of anything higher than 2mbps, regardless of 11 or 54. The internet will NEVER be as fast as your lan, so it doesn't matter.

    Even on very very very large and long file transfers, maxing your bandwidth still is likely being throttled by your ISP, I know because I used to work for one, and I know how the connections are shared. Depending on your ISP, and how they split bandwidth, regardless of what speedtest.net or whatever tells you, you're not going to ever pull your maximum consistently.


    Now at my office, where we had 3 fiber lines coming directly in straight from Chicago, we could NEVER max that SOB out, and we tried......realllllllllllllllly hard lol....pulling insane speeds, after we got done playing with it for a couple days, this was divied up to the customers, who of course, would never see these kinds of speeds either, I'm talking dealing with thousands of simultaneous connections.




    Moral of my post, if you're connected to your router through wifi, and pulling a decent solid connection, it's likely going to be as good as you're going to get on anything, even if you were directly somehow to convert your usb to an ethernet port on your phone and write browser software to use it :)

    My Wi-Fi Tether is indeed 54 Mbps. Though I get 1 Mbps through Verizon so it's worthless. In fact, being in 802.11G uses more battery power/creates more heat than B.
