Operators Never Give You 21Mbps, Check Yourself

Operators Never Give You 21Mbps Check YourselfAs we know operators cap bandwidth inspite of they advertise to provide 21-21 Mbps on their 3G network. We know that this 21 Mbps is just a myth – nor the network neither the operator can afford to provide it.

Now how to check your operator capping speed on your connection? It is easy if you have a Huawei modem.

Download a small application MDMA (Mobile Data Monitoring Application) from www.nerve.org.za and run it after you close the default dashboard or dialer software. It will show QoS (check the screenshot).

Take a screenshot and mail this to us on rudrodiep[at]yahoo.co.in with subject line ‘Quality of Services‘ with attached screenshot. Please mention your circle, operator and which data plan you are using (2G/3G).

Airtel has capped the speed of my number to min 282 bytes and max 2 kbps in the Unlimited @199 INR plan.

Earlier, the normal speed and download rate in EDGE network in my region used to be 20-40 kbps (constantly)

I don’t know why are they cheating their customers to the limit of worst.

Can you please provide any working solution to at least increase my speed upto 10 kbps rate?

Is data-speed capping legal?

It’s true that Tata Docomo has capped EDGE speed to 128Kbps on most of the cell sites. When I used MDMA with Huawei K4505 (28.8Mbps) it confirmed this. Uplink-128.000 Downlink-128.000. But when I inserted my Aircel SIM it shown Uplink-472.000 Downlink-472.000 which means Aircel has not capped EDGE speed and I found the answer to the question, why I get around 400Kbps ( or 50KBps) speed wile using Aircel intenet on EDGE network. Aircel is using Tata Docomo’s network in my area. But I get 300-400Kbps on Aircel and 100-120Kbps on Tata Docomo. Tata is a big cheater.
