Manual Cellular Tower Selection
I live waaaay, way out in the boonies, where I have no real way to get high speed internet at all. I realized that I could pay another 30 bucks a month for internet on the phone, but figured I'd get the same crappy, 56K BS that I'd always gotten out here.
And sure enough, run a simple speed check, I end up with 7.8K, not too shabby, and slightly better than I expected, but at least I had internet again. I go to start a file download after browsing for a while, and to my disbelief it skyrocketted up to 150Kbps, and I didn't quite figure understand how, until I researched just how fast HSDPA is.
Now! This is relevant, because the phone's comm manager only gives me the option of "3g on" and "automatic". Automatic only allows me to give the phone control over which signal it prefers, not the one I'm looking for intentionally. And when connected to an H-Tower with one bar, is still 6 times better than an E tower with three bars.
I'm trying to make it stay on an H-Tower no matter what. How do I accomplish this? Via a pay-program, or whichever.
