3 bars of 3G on dslreports.com gives me a 1Mb download at 710kbit/sec at 17:38 this evening. The network is likely to be busy this time of day so I didn't expect it to be too quick. I often get 1-1.5 Mbit/s.
I'm on W&W basic and am told that I have HSDPA enabled. No reg hacks or alternate DNS.
I cant even get a 3G signal, let alone HSDPA!!!!.
....I notice you are in Selkirk. Where else in Scotland have you been that gets a good 3G reception?. Been up near me in Falkirk or Stirling anytime recently?. I'm having probs getting a 3G signal on my new Vario II, its just showing GPRS all the time.
informs me he gets a good 3G reception in Perth up in Tayside.
Apologies for going a wee bit "off topic" in the thread. Sorry!!!.
Scratch that.....just spotted you are living in Birmingham, but originally from Selkirk......my mistake!!.
I called Tech Services this evening and asked them about it.
The tech said exactly what you have said and that no.....if you are on the 3G signal, your Vario should show the 3G icon. I told him I had exchanged the Vario II today for a replacement and that it was still not showing up as 3G.
He suggested trying a "hard reset" which I did, and now its showing this
No idea why it came up after a hard reset, but it did.
