Default best AT&T set up for download speed

any ideas guys? I had an xperia x10 loaner, running custom ROM+build.prop was seeing 3-4.5Mbps download on AT&T. Ive never been able to get more than 2.5 on my streak, Ive used stock; 1.6, 2.1, 2.2, 2.2.2, DJSteve builds 1.46-1.9, and now im using Simple Streak 1.2.

Any ideas? Would engineering baseband be better? I have the build.prop ro.ril tweaks, etc.

im on simplestreak 1.2 w/baseband 35411-US

Consider yourself lucky, all I'm getting is 1.9, 1.2 and 1 mostly. My gf's captivate gets 3-5 constantly. If any one has any ideas to fix this, please let us know.

How to Increase AT&T 3G Speed on Android
  • Includes step by step to editing build.prop via ADB or Root Explorer.

After some testing, this is the best I could come up with:

SimpleStreak 1.2 with 353 AMS flashed

Code:
ro.ril.enable.dtm=1
ro.ril.gprsclass=12
ro.ril.hep=1
ro.ril.enable.3g.prefix=1
ro.ril.hsdpa.category=14
ro.ril.hsupa.category=6
ro.ril.hsxpa=5
Place that at the end of your build.prop and make sure there is a blank line at the very end. Reboot twice and test.

I went from 439kbps - 900kbps down / 1079kbps up without these settings to 2978kbps down / 1104kbps up

Your mileage may vary.

My original post in this thread:

I flashed the 354 AMS for SimpleStreak 1.2 and found that I am getting around 500kbps d/l speeds on AT&T

I saw your post and was hoping to find some answers. I didn't know what the ro.ril tweaks were, so I googled. I assume you mean adding this to build.prop:

Code:
ro.ril.enable.dtm=1
ro.ril.gprsclass=12
ro.ril.enable.3g.prefix=1
ro.ril.hsdpa.category=28
ro.ril.hsupa.category=9
ro.ril.hsxpa=3
I am going to flash the 353 baseband plus add the ro.ril tweaks and see if that helps.

::update:: Actual speed test result on 354 bb was 439kbps (man that is slow). After flashing 353 bb update, I'm getting 1033kbps down. Going to try some ro.ril tweaks and see if anything changes.

I seem to have posted ro.ril settings for a 4G Galaxy SII (really AT&T... just call HSPDA 4G... who'll know) from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1087729

Settings previously mentioned for Streak are here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=924440

Code:
ro.ril.hsxpa=2
ro.ril.gprsclass=12
ro.ril.hep=1
ro.ril.enable.dtm=1
ro.ril.hsdpa.category=8
ro.ril.hsupa.category = 5
The fastest d/l speed I've seen so far is 1197kbps (using the ro.ril from the SII post). This is really disappointing. The iPhone 4 hits 2.5MB consistently sitting right next to my Streak.

I guess my question becomes, how in the world are you getting 2.5 mb down on your streak?

idk, I'm using same tweaks you posted on simple streak 1.2 with perfmod, but have always seen ~2.5 down, on any ROM.

Running Simple 1.2 with perfmod flashed, flashed 354 completely stock before, then 353 amss.mbn.

After build.prop edits, with about -95 to -99db signal strength:

1:
Download: 2483kbps
Upload: 735kbps
Ping: 240ms

2:
Download: 2557kbps
Upload: 751kbps
Ping: 256ms

How are you guys testing download speed? How do you monitor it? Never did that on a phone.

Speedtest.net I assume.

You can access through the browser also if you set uastring to desktop.

You type that like everyone else just knows what you're talking about.
I'm going to show my age, but right now I'm hearing the Skipper after listening to the Professor explain something, "easy for you, difficult for me."

Where does one set this string and what does it do?
