Has anyone had more then 250kBps out of Apache.  I'm using bluetooth & USB, but just geing 250kBps.
Surely there must be configurable setting to use EVDO 2MBps?

I would be amazed if you see 2mbps I am sure the average is 600k to 1. something

At 256kbps you are on EVDO. Bluetooth is limited to around 700kbps but USB is able to achieve the network maximum. I have had 1.6Mbps out of an Apache using USB.

Your speed could be influenced by coverage or congestion.

Thanks for the comments John but you are incorrect. A few months ago I was getting 2.1Mbps in Auckland using a data card.

Currently using a Harrier over EVDO and USB cradle.

1st 128K took 1234 ms = 106217 Bytes/sec = approx 884 kbits/sec
2nd 128K took 1625 ms = 80660 Bytes/sec = approx 671 kbits/sec
3rd 128K took 1547 ms = 84727 Bytes/sec = approx 705 kbits/sec
4th 128K took 1047 ms = 125188 Bytes/sec = approx 1042 kbits/sec

Pretty good really.

If you guys have to play TNZ vs VFNZ please start your own topic.

As for the original question, it's your Bluetooth connection. Bluetooth on a PC is "wired" through the serial drivers and thus limited to 256Kbps, even though the standard in theory supports 1Mbps.
