Default Data speed slow on aokp/cm roms

Hi guys,

I have noticed that my phone data speed drastically slows on any aokp/cm roms.

I was on Touchwiz rom with uvmc6 radio and then I installed cyanogenmod 11 alpha 3 and with same radio the speed went half.

Where I live here we have Edge service. On touchwiz roms I touch 20-25 KBps whereas it merely touches 15 KBps on aosp based roms. The latency is also slow.

Is there any solution to it? Can anbody tell which settings does samsung use to make it fast? Maybe i could add something to build.prop to make it fast.

Thanks

Try this courtesy of @TripFX:

Go into "Settings"
Under "Wireless & network" click More...
then click "mobile networks"
then click "Access Point Names"
click hard menu button then "new apn"
enter this

Name: T-Mobile US LTE
APN: fast.t-mobile.com
MMSC: http://mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc
MCC: 310
MNC: 260
APN type: default,supl,mms
APN protocol: IPv4/IPv6

Save and reboot.

Our phone can't get LTE speed but I do get better reception & speed with this.

Hi,

Thanks but it's not an apn issue. Same apn settings perform different results on touchwiz and aosp based roms. Do you think there could be any settings in some system files?

I don't know, haven't really had this happen and I've used AOKP and CM lately. Did you check to make sure "Use only 2G" isn't checked in mobile network settings? Also maybe change your DNS settings to get slightly better speed.

Maybe try the Fresh Network app on Play. I really do think the ROM flash and your speed reduction was a coincidence as I've have flashed so many ROMs over the last 2 years and never experienced that. Then again everybody can have different things happen that others never have a problem with.

Also as a last resort maybe re-flash the latest radio via ODIN and see what happens.

Thanks. I have tried those signal boosters as well but I guess it has to do this with my network may be

I also have odined back to stock and re-rooted phone and then tried cm but it produces the same results. On touchwiz roms it works very well. Anyway, thanks a lot for your help. I'm attaching my network screenshot for reference.
