Cell connection switching

Its annoying to see the data connection keeps dropping as the cell signal switches between 2.5G, 3G and 3.5G. I installed the 2G/3G switcher to force a signal mode but then I need to keep monitoring it. The hotel seems to be in a pocket where there is no strong signal. So the mode continuously moves between 2G and 3G. I am hoping the new home location has a good signal.

    Curious if once you get settled if the switching for you stops. I’m solidly in a T-Mobile 3G zone (according to their map), but it still switches 2.5/3/3.5 while sitting at my desk! Frustrating.

      Terry, sorry for the late reply. Glad you like the blog!🙂

      To prevent the constant switching from 2-3.5G, I use the 2G/3G switch applet. Hope this helps.
