Post [Q] Extremely bad internet speeds after rooting

Hello, so basically I have rooted my Speedy from 2.3.4 by using the bootloader unlock method posted by VICODAN in his tutorial but now I find that I am having insanely slow download/upload speeds compared to before rooting.

I have flashed the latest radio after finding THIS thread and I also tried the method from HERE to try and at least boost my speeds. I have also updated my profile and PRL through my Sense rom but nothing seems to help.

If anyone could give me any advice I would greatly appreciated it. I am on MikShifted-G v2.1 running dodgekernal v1.6. Thanks in advance.

I would also like to know if there is any way that I can go back to the stock 2.3.4 GB.

Well I've found that your speeds depend on what time of day it is. I know that's BS, but it's what I've found. Posted some Screen Shots Below of my Speeds.

The only time I get decent speeds from sprint is at night. Like 2am night.

You could also try the 3G Turbo Charger. You'll find it on THIS thread. Just make sure to read before installing.

Maybe you had roaming enabled in your old/stock rom and it's turned off be default in your new rom?

Well the thing is that I had perfectly fine speeds in my area prior to rooting.

I downloaded the "Network signal speeds booster" and "Fresh netowork booster", both from the play store and I am having almost back to normal speeds now, there was a dramatic increase in speed after I used both of those.

But I have also looked at the 3G Turbo Charger thread that prboy linked and I will definitely be trying that as well
