I am using HSPA internet access via my Nokia N95 phone as a modem. I am on the fringe range from the Optus 3G tower located at Goolwa, South Australia. I have problems with signal strength and connection quality/dropouts. I have read about the yagi antenna success and plans offered by Exetel and would like to take advantage of this. My concern is when i sit under the tower accessing the internet there is little improvement. The 3G symbol does not come up on the phone as well which makes me wonder if indeed it is a true 3G tower. I have tried a 7 and 11db gain aerial connected to the phone via a generic cradle with little improvement. Any ideas!
