    Hi The Goose. I would say that give a call to your operator and tell them about your problem, but since it doesn't look like a signal strenght problem, I would suggest to you what I did to get stable speed for my 3G connection.

    I have this huawei e1552 usb dongle and found it works the best when it's very close to a window. What I did to find a sweet spot for the placement. I ran speedtest.net and pingtest.net tests with my laptop, if they gave me bad results, moved the laptop and dongle to a different spot, repeated this until found a good spot.
    Addition to this you could also try tweaking your windows settings. Found a site that has tips and tweaks. Speed Guide net. There is broadband section with win7/vista tweaks in it, those could potentially provide some enhancement. You could try those out. But as you are getting a proper broadband connection soon, that is the best sollution. Will do the same when I move to different appartment :)

    Have a nice day

    I had to use one of these for a couple of months last year and I had the same issue as you. I started looking into ways to improve my transfer rates and found stuff like hardware signal boosters, which I didn't want to buy as I knew this would only be temporary.

    Ended up using a solution I found on youtube, it wasn't the most elegant solution but looked something like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPb11oWhTrQ

    After fiddling around with it's direction a bit, it worked and did the job until I got my proper broadband back online :)
