    Hi guys,

    I'm on Etisalat (Dubai, United Arab Emirates) and my download speed is appalling. I see people posting screen shots and they are getting 200kb/s+, but no matter what site im using or where i'm downloading from, I get 12kb/s MAX. 3G or 2G, doesn't matter.

    So I want to know, is this because my provider is limiting it or what, is there any way to get 'faster then dailup' speed on my blackberry cause this is NOT cool.

    You are violating Forum rules with your continual bumps.

    "
    Bumping
    This refers to posting with the deliberate intention to either pad your post count or to keep a thread 'hot' so it appears at the top of the forum. Bumping can sometimes be useful, but you must wait three days from the original post to bump the thread. Only one bump is allowed per thread per user. CrackBerry.com's moderator’s reserve the right to delete useless “bumps” at their discretion."

    nope i haven't contacted Etisalat. If there is a limitation of connection issue, is it possible for them to remove it?

    I don't know if this helps or not, but apparently they were doing maintenance. http://forums.crackberry.com/f75/rim...2010-a-549916/

    Its been like this since ive gotten my BB service (over a year ago). It's never been above 15 and a few people I know have the same speeds, I have a feeling its Etisalat purposely limiting people's connections.
