Default Is the tethering with the 8310 really that slow?

Please Login to Remove!

It almost took my 15 min just to get on a site? Is this normal and this slow when it comes to tethering? With my moto q and telus it blows it out of the water compared to rogers?

Depends on how great your signal is. Also if you can I would go into the tethering connection's modem properties and change the baud rate to something higher than 115200. I had good luck changing mine to 460800. That might help a little but still EDGE sucks for tethering.

EDGE will give you an average of 50-125 kbps with an absolute max of 384 kbps. Not really much faster than dial up. But it really depends on the connection, distance to the tower, voice and data congestion at the tower, the device processor and device memory, among other things.

That does seem unusually slow even for EDGE tethering but it's not unreasonable. EDGE tethering is awfully slow.

Telus will beat Rogers, as Rogers is GSM. I average a speed of 1.1Mbps while tethered on Verizon's EVDO network.

How can you get speed higher than 115.2kb? 115200 is the highest option I can choose in my setup.

T-Mobile 8320 (OS 4.5.0.110, BIS plan, UMA wi-fi mode) connected thru USB cable to Win XP Pro and DM 4.7.
