Check out the *BEST WORKING MODEM LOCATIONS GOOGLE MAP* that anyone can pin
their best modem(s) that works for their area to a public Google map and when moused over it displays the modems. TRY IT!

Here is a great website to determine what band/coverage your provider uses. Just type out your country and select your network ect. from the drop down menu.

Which is better, 850 or 1900?

In general, you are going to get more performance out of 850 than you are going to get out of 1900 for several reasons. 1. As mentioned earlier, back when the 850 licenses were issued, they had to cover a certain amount of land cover. This required deploying their system throughout many rural areas (not ALL though). 1900 licenses only need to cover up to 67% of the population, and in many cases they don't even have to meet that. 2. The higher the frequency, the shorter the usable range. You need approximately twice as many 1900 MHz towers to cover a given area than 850 MHz towers. Most 1900 MHz towers are in urban and suburban areas. A properly built 1900 system will work as well as a properly built 850 system, but it will likely cost more to deploy and operate. Sometimes 1900 will work better in a city because 1900 MHz signals tend to work better in the middle of the city with large buildings as the shorter wavelength allows the signal to go around corners easier. Also, due to network loading, 850 towers have to be "turned down" in urban areas so as to not overload, so the playing field is leveled. 3. Leaving the technical details aside, it seems that 850 MHz signals penetrate most modern buildings better than 1900 MHz signals. There are many factors involved such as the material of the walls, the proximity of the local cell towers and various other factors. The fact that 850 MHz carriers have been in operation longer and have optimized their coverage is an important factor to consider. If there is a window nearby, chances are that either system will work, assuming that there is some sort of signal available at the window! The bottom line is this: when you try out a service, make sure you bring your phone to all the areas you'll be using to make sure it works where you need it.


I897-ICS/CM7-9/MIUI Modems that was removed from website due to no audience chip support for these ROMS. Note: Makes the other person on the line complain because your all static....

This is very useful, Oxi, thank you. Would you mind putting a matrix of which modems work with which versions of Android? I see you have the JL1 modem in your sig, and I was thinking the only ones I could safely use with Cog5v2 were K-series. Some clarity on this would help me a lot. Thanks again, nice work!

As far as I know as long as its a 1897 modem then you can use it in the I897 Cognition ROM. I'm running the Cog 5 v2 with the JL1 modem and it works the best for me in my area. I have awesome battery life and most of the time full bars and the download speeds isn't to bad.

If I helped you please hit the "Thanks" button...

I was on the site moving a few things. I tried to create a drop down menu for the modems but it seems the browser didn't like it so I changed it back. Try again it should work correctly now. I tried it on my XDA app and it worked fine.

Question
Thanks for the great work! Any chance of having some type of dates assioated with the modems so there would be a way of knowing the newer from the older ones?

Any chance you might do the same thing for CM7/MIUI modems?
