Seeking Faster Mobile Broadband


OUR OVER THE AIR mobile broadband speeds at home simply cannot penetrate the granite of the Rock of Cashel and use a 3G mast a few miles inside the town. Consequently, we are left fighting for service on a 3G mast standing six miles away and that mast appears to be stretched by subscribers using O2 and Tesco Mobile.

I snapped a shot of 3G in Drogheda when we visited for my niece's birthday. Speeds there have always been three to six times faster than what I get in Cashel. I am sharing a Speedtest from my current handset.

We need to get O2-Ireland running faster than my Hauwei Mifi allows and I think it means getting a USB data modem. When I run my O2 Hotshot in USB mode, it negotiates a faster stream. I hope the USB modem gives me the same result.
