Currently I use prepaid 3G flat internet with some crappy ZTE USB 3G stick. The package I have is advertised as 10Mbit/s, and the modem is limited to 7.2Mbit/s. Speed is nowhere near that and I didn't expect it to be but at night I get less than 1Mbit/s which is unbearable, during the day I can get a decent 3Mbit/s. The guy in the store told me that I would accomplish nothing if I just upgrade to their better package(30Mbit/s), that I should upgrade my hardware.
He pointed me to a few Huawei sticks that are limited to 42Mbit/s. So is this true? Better USB stick provides a better connection? Because this to me looks like it just has a bigger limit, but I don't get anywhere near the limit even on my old one. Is the new one a more powerful antenna or something like that? Is it possible that they are just "choking" the reception I get in my data SIM card no matter what the hardware is?
