Using a Telus Modem Could Improve Data Speeds on AT&T SGS2

Data speeds are a touchy subject on pretty much every carrier worldwide. Sometimes the speeds are awesome, sometimes the speeds suck. Some are worse than others, some are better than others, but invariably there are customers of all of them who wish their speeds could be a little better.

Well, for those carrying the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket SGH-I727, your data woes may be a little closer to ending. XDA Senior Member kr3w1337 has posted that using a Telus modem could increase your data speeds. kr3w1337 explains:

Just wanted to share that using the Telus modem on the skyrocket leads to better speeds on HSPA for me. Reason being that the Telus modem has dual channel HSPA enabled so it should theoretically hit speeds of 42 mbps.

The method for flashing the modem is the same as flashing any other Samsung Galaxy S2 modem, so there’s no special tricks or difficult methods involved in the flashing process. Simply flash the modem and reboot. It’s only been tested by a few people, so kr3w1337 asks that if anyone does flash it to report to the thread to show their results.

If you’d like to give it a shot, you can find the download link to the modem and discussion in the original thread. Be sure to find and download a stock modem so you can restore back to your regular modem if it doesn’t work.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
