    My LG Optimus V's internet connection speed is fine; I am satisfied with it and I'm not having any real problems with it, but speeding it up a bit definitely wouldn't hurt. I'd love some tips/tricks that might quicken the connection a bit. Thanks.

    Yep. WiFi. I USUALLY only get 56kbps or less(i.e. dialup) speeds on 3G in the area I'm usually in, so it's WiFi whenever/wherever possible for me...

    If it ain't broken, ... :)

    1) move your phone closer to the connecting tower
    2) disable all other users (Sprint, VM, & Boost) that are sharing that tower

    Don't mean to be a smart-ass, but realistically these would be the most effective "tips/tricks"--whether doable that's another story... ;)

    Moving closer to the tower might give you a better signal (RSSI), but if the tower is already saturated, nothing ain't gonna help your speed.

    Some older towers are only fed with (1) T-1 line, Max speed 1.5mbps...Max speed available to users 1.2mbps....Depends on HOW many people are using that tower, and WHAT they're doing (streaming video, downloading, etc).
