    I've been having internet troubles since i got my Hero a few weeks ago.

    It seems to jump between '3G' and 'H' when I use any applications using the internet. This means that pages often fail to load/download, or appear slower than 2G connection speeds.

    I think this is because I'm in an area which can just about receive HDSPA speeds sometimes, but not consistently, so I was wondering if there's any way to set the internet to stay at 3G and not attempt to connect to HDSPA? When I'm in areas where the best speed possible in 3G, the internet is infinitely faster than when it's jumping from 3G to H and back.

    I think I read a thread here about an app called Any Cut that could make the phone stick to a specific internet speed.

    Yep, tried it out! It makes sure the connection is 3G or greater speed, which isn't really helpful in my situation lol.

    I find the same thing, moving between a crap HDPSA signal and 3G causes woe, for example will keep disconnecting from Google Talk causing delayed conversations...
