    After some tweaking in QPST I tested my network speed and here is the before and after.

    Location:South Florida
    Server:Miami Florida

    Before:
    53 kbps download
    128 kbps download

    After:
    130 kbps download
    215 kbps upload

    I'm interested to see others results and location.

    I'd like to hear more details of what you "tweaked" exactly... as the network speed for me sucks.

    nothing, network speed varies, connection to a server varies, usually speed test sites have multiple servers in a location and bandwidth load varies. the only way you could possibly make way in getting better network speed is by hard modding the amount of power the antenna takes and its transfer rates, or and i've noted this with clocking OC ur phones processor, that doesn't make a GREAT change but it was noticeable from 245mhz to full stock 600mhz

    Cool. I'm gonna try that when I get home :)
    I did have a trick but it's only for wifi.

    I got 30Mbps with comcast at home, strange thing is I had a wireless N router but could never download faster than 1Mbps, I messed with channels, tried B, G, mixed, N alone. Nothing worked.

    Why? I was using WPA Personal, as it turns out that actually limits your speed severly. You need to ALWAYS set it to WPA2 Personal. Not like most routers default to.
    Now I get full 30Mbps to my android via wifi along with any other devices.

    Just a useful lesson.
