Digi Postpaid 150 Infinite is a great deal for those who use data bandwidth a lot and still need to travel around Malaysia. How does Digi performance 4G LTE / LTE-A vs 3G WCDMA / HSPA+? My place does not have LTE-A coverage yet. And my device can’t seem to get higher speed 3G HSPA+. So the battle is fall into 4G LTE vs 3G WCDMA now. Let’s find out Digi Internet speed test performance on both 4G and 3G now…
There is a way to force using 2G / GSM network only to save battery on Google Nexus 4. But no way to force using 3G / WCDMA network only in Mobile network settings. Well, this is no true because Android OS has the ability to do so. But just hidden in Nexus 4. Yes, you can bring up Testing app which consist Phone information, battery information, Usage statistics and Wi-Fi information to do so Phone info. Change the preferred network type from WCDMA preferred to WCDMA only.
My home broadband connection is down. Luckily, I have HTC HD2 with me. I can do Wi-Fi and USB tethering in Windows Mobile. But some of the Android ROMs cannot do both. So here is an Android application that can help those who like me ~ Wireless Tether for Root Users. It enables tethering via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. I did not try on Bluetooth mode but I am a happy user with Internet connection through Wi-Fi.
I don’t have a strong 3G signal at my place. And it used to turn to 2G EDGE when 3G signal is weak. Data connection is broken then and slow with EDGE connection. Network application by Philipp Mangelow manages to help to set ‘WCDMA only’ on certain Android ROMs with EVO kernel where I cannot set ‘WCDMA only’ in connection settings.
My home broadband connection, Streamyx is having issue again. It keeps disconnecting and connecting (DSL is not connected issue). So it is time for me to use my HTC HD2 as modem again. But I don’t want to use wireless connection this time, but going to try Wired Tether for Root Users. It is the same as Wireless Tether for Root Users but using USB cable instead of Wi-Fi connection. It is good for single user usage and can charge your phone at the same time.
