Default tricks and tips on how to get better 3g speeds

i feel really bad for my buddy ive been trying to turn his optimus m into a bad mofo like my samsung prevail on boost. ive rooted it, put cm7 and did some qpst work and got the newest prl (3026 or somethin like that). ive got just about every aspect of the phone itself working perfectly except for one thing. he never has 3g and his download and upload speeds are complete crap. 35kbs dl and 50kbs up ?? theres gotta be some more stuff i can do to it. im getting around 2.2mgb down and .63 mgb up. on boost.

any suggestions are greatly appreciated

boost has faster speeds than metropcs.....the area u are in also may not be sending out 3g signals for metropcs, but there is one guide that is known to make speeds faster on 3G and sometimes they are faster on 1x, sometimes theyre not
Link:
3g boost that really works. (scroll down to post 9 for the instructions which is another link.....I'm just showing you that we found something that works with the Optimus M already)

try another PRL then, I heard that in some areas 3025 works better than 3026. In other areas 3026 works better than 3025...just gotta find the right one for your area

Also yea I want to switch my Optimus M to boost, I really hate metropcs...
