[Q] LG Optimus G E975 not compatible with Australia Telstra 3G network
I bought a LG Optimus G E975 from the website kogan.au. When I got the phone, it looks like it's not for Australia market - the language was set to Chinese, and so was the user guide. Then I flashed the Avatar ROM from this forum.
Everything works fine except that whenever I use 3G mobile network, the speed is extremely slow, e.g. 13kb/s - it brings me to the stone age. Even I am with Telstra, the biggest service provider in Australia, I cannot get 4G everywhere - only a part of Sydney region has got it. So I have to rely on 3G network. This is very painful. I have 1GB download quota per month but I can barely use it.
After some googling, I have discovered that LG Optimus G E975 only supports HSDPA 900 / 2100 for 3G netowork, while Telstra network 3G operates at HSDPA 850 / 2100, and lots of area doesn't have access to HSDPA 2100. I believe this is the cause of my slow 3G network speed.
Does anyone has experience of how to resolve my issue, i.e. how to speed up my 3G browsing?
Thanks for help in advance.
