They improved mine by 30 or so kilo bytes and signal strength from -96 to -76

My signal strength went up noticeably without even needing to look at the numbers and I went up 200-300kbps. Not bad.

I used FD19 until I wanted to try something new. My brother has been using EG30 since day one so I tried it and it actually is really good... although it shows lower signal strength the speeds are just a little bit faster.

That's definitely true. I tried them all and it's all the same...

FD19 has increased my 3G data speeds dramatically. I tried all of the other modems, and I was consistently getting less than 250kb/s, and sometimes as low as 30kb/s on SpeedTest.

I've now been reaching up to 1.6mb/s using the FD19 modem, which is a 600% increase of data speed. There weren't any planned data upgrades in my area according to the Sprint Network Enhancement Map. I'm on Long Island, New York.
