Post Your's Wireless ISP Scores

Recommended Posts

I did some deeper investigation into Sprint's EVDO coverage area and found that the signal ends about 10 mile from here, which means I'm running 1xRTT.

I found the following information:

"When the card is out of EV-DO range the Compass 597 drops to the much slower 1X system, with speeds around 100 Kbps."

" from the tests, the better the EV-DO signal, the faster the performance. It's also pretty clear that some EV-DO Rev A coverage areas are MUCH faster than others."

Are you using an external antenna with this modem? If not it probably would be a good idea to investigate them.

I have a Wilson Trucker Omni installed but it doesn't seem to be doing what I had hoped (max the signal and hold it there).  I have a friend who offered to give me an old Yagi antenna which was used for CB style business radio communications but I have no idea if that would even work for me.

A yagi is good if you know where to point it exactly. It is a directional antenna. I used both and gained "2" signal strength. Not much for the money. But one never knows till they try. And I am 3 miles from my tower. But several tree's between me and my neighbor.

Want to borrow one of my chain saws?, may equal more speed.

Nah, he might get mad, and winter will settle that for me soon.  :wink: Well till spring again anyway. But I'll have good speeds in the meantime.  :haha:

Besides I have a 20" Stihl farm boss that could do it. Thanks bro. Always appreciated.  :icon_thumleft:
