Increase PTCL EVO Signals and Speed

As we know PTCL’s EVO (also called EVDO) service is out there, but reportedly it offers irregular coverage (besides Islamabad) – resulting many EVO customers returning their USB devices within 3 days.

(BTW, PTCL allows you to return EVO device with-in 3 days, in case of no signals at your home/office, or if you are not satisfied with the service – though you won’t be given cash instantly, you will have to wait for a month before you get your amount back in form of cheque)

Faisal Mehmood, has derived couple of mechanisms to increase signal strength of PTCL EVO device – following steps told by Faisal, can not only enhance signal strength  but will also increase speed of your PTCL EVO.

Method 1

PTCL_EVDO

Get a CD with both sides empty (meaning no sticker on either side) and flip it over to EVO device’s antenna

Method 2

USB_PTCL

Faisal writes on his blog,

You will need a thin wire (preferably silver or copper). To get started turn the wires around the antenna, so as to form a spiral around it as shown. The top part should stick out about 10 cms, and then you will need to add some more spirals (three or four) such that they are roughly 5 cm. After that you need to leave a straight wire about 1.5 cm in length.

To turn the wire, I would suggest you twist it around a pencil or pen and then adjust the spiral distance by hand.

  • Jamil Arif

    anyone whats the signal situation in adyala rawalpindi.

    • Rao Shafiq

      fair signal

  • Jamil Arif

    Good work by faisal the second method always helps as this method is also used for mobile signals by wrapping the wire around the mobile.

  • m.h

    what do you mean by irregular coverage

    • Irregular coverage means, in one area of the city (Rawalpindi, Lahore and Karachi) signals would be good, while in other there can be weak or no signals at all.

      • ali

        in lahore we have full signals but our downloading speed is only 20kbps they just fucking their cstmrs. local area internet is good as compare to this so called “nation wide” service provider .

        • Peter

          SO TRUE.

  • m.h

    what about my answer for best internet

    • You can select between, Link Dot Net and PTCL

      But remember, get PTCL’s DSL only if you have very smooth/noiseless landline connection. In wireless go fot PTCL EVO, but 1st check if signals are good in your area or not!

      Also consult your friends in your neighborhood, they can best guide you regarding a service in a particular area. I have seen different companies perform better in some areas, while not in the other.

      • Muhammad Abrar Naeem

        I am using PTCL’s DSL , i have a noisy landline but still my DSL runs perfectly and i get full downloading and uploading speed.
        U r right that different companies perform better in some areas . My cousin has also got PTCL DSL , and he lives near to my house , he has noiseless line but he cant get full download speed .

  • Usman Ali

    wich method is more effective 1 or 2

    • Method 2 is more effective, and it is best suit if you have extremely low signals

  • m.h

    what abut wateen

  • Usman Ali

    okies!! if i try the same on my wifi router will it be effectve

  • Yup signals drops sometimes :(

  • m.h

    jis area mein evo wireless broadband k signal weak hote hain kya wahan per vfone k signal bhi weak hote hain

    • Jamil Arif

      yes because EVO and Vfone is using the same tower.

      • ejaz

        der ismail mein khan evo kam karey gi

        • Ikram Attock

          Ejaz sir agar pata chaley tu mujhe bhi bata dena.
          Ok…

      • Abdul Aleem

        pr yahan pr to vfone ke full signal aate hain lekin evo ke nahi aate

  • Faisal Mehmood

    Thanks for the appreciation Aamir.

    Guys – these methods are just a very low-tech way to get a bit of more signal strength out of your adapter. Please note that EVDO SPEED is best only if you live very close to a tower –

  • qafridiq

    Guys i m from karachi using EVO as a backup internet service and signal strength is good means almost complete signals, but download and upload speed never shows me more then 400 k.
    never comes near to 1 MB. so what is the meaning of 3.1 MB?

    • khan

  • usman

    now a days ptcl giving the new usb evo it has no antenna than how we increase the signal please reply if any body know thanx

    • Irfan qmr

      dear Usman I am also using the EVO made by HUWAWI and it does not have external antena out let point only have hand free point .I am an electronic engineer and know very well about signals I have used a lot of mathods of increasing wi fi signals on it but it does not improve the signals I am at the distance of 5 Km from ptcl tower and at room I get 1 singnal some time no signal and if it get connected the network it connect on CDMA/HYBRID network and these both types are not for 3.1 Mb speed the CDMA can provide you maximum 20/30 Kb/s down loading data speed and it activate on the level of 1 signal and the HYBRID activate from 1/4 signals ant it provide you different speed from 1~4 signals at 1 signal it gives you 38Kb/s on 2 signals 38/100Kb/s on 3signal 38/170Kb/s and the 4th singnal does not support the speed but it tries to stable the maximum speed of 3signals level and if you watch the incoming speed you will find it from 0Kb/s to 1.3Mb/s means if you are getting the 2 signals you are at the pakege of 512Kb/s of wateen and if you are getting the 3 signals you are at 1Mb pakege of wateen and if you are getting the 4 signals you are at 1.3Mb of wateen . and most important signal is 5 if you get the 5th signal then you will connect to EVDO mode .sometimes by mistake of soft ware this mode shows but actually it works at 5th signal here you go at 3.1 Mb pakege that has downloading speed 300/800 Kb/s means you are enjoying the real EVO . yes I was telling you that I have givin it a solution that if you increase your length of USB cable with a good quality cable and fix the device at the roof you will get better signals at every 2.5 Meter length in air towards sky it improves 1 signal so I am using the USB cable of 8 Meter I am getting 4 signals and for experiment I have taken it to 15 Meters but signal does not gone up to 4 . and its because the EVO transmission bosters only have a range of 1.5 Km from tower. after this range you are served by other ptcl towers and other mobile networks towers because the CDMA and HYBRID are the technology of series and parallel signals of a cluster of towers . and remember about the microwave and wi fi signals that these signals are badly effective by weather conditions as the weather will be clear the signls will be in strength and data can be transferd and receive well but if the weather gets humidity or becomes rainy or fouge then signal effective badly although the signals are 2/3/4 but the data transfer and receiving speed will decrease very badly , so you should improve you USB cable length you will get the good results but if you extend your cable much or not use a good quality wires your divice may not be detected by system so use the good wires for extension ,and live in contact with me by my email ID ( [email protected] ) and am doing experiments so if I get and usefull technique I shall share it with you. thanks

      • Muhammad Rameez Ul Haq Fareedi

        you can use Old antenna wire if you are trying 2nd method .. ! it will work perfectly !!

          i hav the same problem of having low signal , ill do the same thing as irfan told u, i know the main purpose of having evo wireless is killed by this technique of long cable, so i hav a solution if u like , as i m using router (3g tplink) , i can connect my laptop any where in my house through it, and hav set my usb on direction of good signal , so i suggest u to use 3g router ,, thanx

      • Nauman Safdar

        Man, i tested evo atleast 40 KM from the closest tower, and got almost 75% signal strength… of course i used an outdoor antenna.

        Punjab’s eVO works at 1900MHz, and here in KPK EVO Works at 450MHz, i tested Punjab’s evo in haripur… closest tower of 1900MHz is found in Islamabad about 40KM arieal distance…

  • rizwan

    plz some body assist me in setting with mac snow leopard

    • iqtedar

      What precisely do you need to know? For 10.6 you will first need to download the latest driver which I can send to on request. The supplied driver and the ‘latest’ one on their website do not work. After running the installer, the ‘broadband.app’ will be installed in your applications folder and it will run automatically without needing to do any settings. However, there is one thing messing for mac users – there is no soft phone dialler which means there is no way to recharge your account online.

      • khurram

        Hi Iqtedar
        I m just back from london, I got PTCL Evo which doesnt work on Macbook air, please assit me as u said u can send the driver on request.
        Many Thanks

        • iqtedar

          The driver PTCL provides does not work with Snow Leopard (10.6). It is for 10.4-5 only. Get the 10.6 installer from http://www.huaweidevice.com/resource/mini/200910149695/testmobile1014/index.html?directoryId=3874&treeId=0.

          I installed the top ‘Dashboard installer’; the app will be installed in your applications folder and all settings are done automatically. Then you can connect to the Internet but because there is no ‘soft phone’ as for windows users, there is no way to recharge your account yourself. It is a shame PTCL has not updated its website to provide this driver for mac users and that it does not have a same soft phone with it.

          Regards,

      • mariam

        hello there
        i am desperate for the latest driver for my mac 10.6, since the worldcall website software doesnt work, i cannot install the EVDO broadband on to my laptop. i hope you can help me
        thank you

        • iqtedar

          Hello Mariam,

          I checked the WorldCall site, and I think the problem is with downloading the file. After clicking it, a page containing jibberish appears. Let it load, then save the page (select save as …) and it will save as a .rar archive. Then you just need a .rar unarchiver. You can get one for free from http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/21430/simplyrar.

          If you already have the file but it is not working, tell me exactly which Huawei model of the USB dongle you have, then I will email you the latest version of the drivers.

          • mariam

            hello iqtedar
            i managed to download the file ‘mobile partner’, but it doesnt allow Me to connect, even though i have tried several profile names. I dont know if I am doing something wrong or there is something wrong with the driver.
            everytime i insert the EVDO usb it asks to ignore or eject it as my mac cannot recognize it.
            model name: ADU-510A
            hope u can you help, thank you!!

            • iqtedar

              You should not normally need to set the profile containing username and password because this should already be set if you bought the device new. If these settings are changed, you should contact the company for the login details. I’m wondering whether your device is not new or it has been tampered with because you wrote that the Mac does not recognise it. This suggests it may need to be reformatted, but remember if you do this, this will delete all existing files on the drive.

              On the other hand, you may need to reset the preference for Mac from the default Windows. See page 45 of the manual for this modem at http://www.romtelecom.ro/fileadmin/template/main/images/docs/drivers/Manual%20modem%20USB%20CDMA%20ADU%20510L.pdf. Apparently this needs to be done using a PC. If you don’t have access to a PC, you can run the .exe file using WINE or by installing windows under VirtualBox or BootCamp on your mac.

              I located another site from where you can download the latest drivers if the one WorldCall provides is faulty. Download it from http://proetcontra.net/php/downloads.php?ids=9. Your dongle ADU-510A is provided by AnyDATA.

  • Ahmed

    eVo is a failure… I am sitting about 2km from westridge exchange tower in pindi.. and signals will rise n fall drastically and too frequently at the same place… speed is terribly low.. mostly i get switched to 1x… i get around 30KBps download usually … never got even 100KBps max… only usable in very limited areas very near to ptcl towers…
    useless… cant do any voice chat or screen sharing… cant watch videos… dont go for it it will make u cry.. u cant even return it and get refund..

    • qaddafi

      helllo

      i got the new device of evo in black and red color. which ptclis showing in pics and add. now a days. ofcurse you cant use it 35km from tower. But if u will see carefully throughout the evo device u will get a port for antina. the same port like in mobile fones. so what u have to do take a connector for that port. if u cant get a suitable connector take two thin wires of good quality and make a desi connection means put one wire inside the hole of antina port and 2nd wire u have to clip over the port or if u r able to open the device you can do solding to extands the antina wires from evo usb antina port. OPEN DEVICE AT UR OWN RISK
      now however you have two antina wires out from evo antina port or if u got connector also take out wires from connector too. TAKE A PTCL Vphone Ext. antina and make hight of 30ft and also make diraction of antina towards evo tower. now u have to join ext. antina cable with the wires u got from evo usb antina output.

      BE SURE UR EXT. ANTINA MUST BE TOWARDS EVO TOWER. if the direction of antina is not right u will not get signals. if u r not getting signals moe ur antina slowly like ur setting dish antina towards evo tower also ur antina must not have to be shaken bz if ur antina will shake u will get low signals just like dish antina. make a sold iron holding for antina for permanant useage. also u can try more than 30fts if u r more away or not getting signals.

      i am living in 103 J. B. Bernala, Faisalabad. bernala is 35km from faisalabad and i am thinking the tower is 30km from me. may be more. without ext. vfone antina i am not getting even cdma or 1x signals here but by using vfone ext. antina i am having full signals and speed up to 2mb depending on evo service.

    i want to share an important fact about DSL speed. That is your connection speed is described in kilo bit per second. While downloading speed is shown in kilo byte per second.
    one byte = 8 bits
    and best speed is 80 % for any connection

    so 1 mb= 1000 kilo bits = 125 kilo byte (best speed is 125 kbps)
    2mb = 2000 kilo bits = 250 kilo byte (2000/8) (best speed)

  • Maqsood Ahmed

    so for the EVO ptcl if PTCL says its connection speed is 3.1 mbps it means 3100 kilo bits and 387 kilo byte so 100 % downloading speed is 387. But 80 % is still good which is 309. So compare your speeds with it

  • malik faisal

    hi,main kashmir sy hoon mere ghar main signals to full hain pf evo ki down, speed sirf 90 to 150 kb hai why? 300 to 400 sirif naam ki speed hai…………….dail up to ksi kam ka nahi hai es sy bethar to local phone net hai,,,,,,,,agar speed ko boost up krny ka koi treeka hai to mail kr k bty koi plzzz…[email protected]]

  • Ahmad Wali

    Hello All,

    I would recommend don’t waste money (6000Rs) on Evo. Its speed as compare to its price is very very very very very very slow… I have only 20KB Download speed and 10KB upload and my Evo signals are even full…

  • iqtedar

    In low signal areas, you can do a number of things: (1) Go up a floor if you can, (2) Make your own antenna such as a cantenna, (3) Buy an antenna from the market. With the latter, if your dongle does not have a port for an external antenna, use the coupling method instead or you can try to find a universal strap/adapter. An 8db gain antenna will cost around Rs 800 but an antenna is a must if you really want to see some improvement in signal strength. In my case, I was able to improve from a barely usable 2-3 bars place to a stable 4 bars in mornings and stable 3 during the day.

    • asif

      universal strap/adapter. An 8db gain antenna
      ye antena kaha se milega
      03452771151

      • iqtedar

        You can try computer/electronics shops and ask for a ‘3G ANTENNA’. This should cover the frequency 1900MHz. I read somewhere that PTCL uses the lower 800MHz in Peshawar, so if you live in Peshawar get this confirmed. The higher the gain you can get, the better. Also, if the signals inside your home are very poor, get an EXTERNAL one for better results. I bought mine from Satellite Plaza, behind Dubai Plaza, 6th Road, Rawalpindi. Attach the antenna securely somewhere outside as high as you can. It will probably come with a CRC9 connector. If it does not plug in directly and you don’t have the universal strap and have to resort to coupling, this simply means wrapping the end wire around the dongle a few times. From my experience, some computer shops will not even know what you’re asking for but just keep trying and you’ll find one some shop that stocks accessories for wireless products.

    All of these plans are rip off. choice is among lesser eveils. these thugs are
    charging at the rate what is charges in teh USA and Europe, if not higher, and
    service si pathetic and effetive bandwith is only a small fraction of what they
    get there. Remember we are paying higher than USA/Euprope consumers. No execues.
    and no comparisons with 1200bps modes. People grow up and fight. did any one
    compalin? to any of your service provider? did you call customer service? did you
    ask to talk to a supervisor? and did it again and agian? or are all of us got amune
    to be abused?

    waiting for your kind responce.

  • Muhammad Abdul Wahab

    I am using PTCL EVO since December 2010. No doubt they are offering one of the worst services in Paksitan. Services in terms of its speed and customer services. Now they have annouced 1 month free EVO services without improving services to existing customers. To be precise my EVO is 3.1 Mb and i have never experienced its speed more than 90 kbps.

  • usmanjavid

    This method is not in any way related to increasing your signals. Its a simple trick to make your internet browsing faster.

    What you are going to do is use Google’s Public DNS. You can read more about it here. Using Google’s DNS not only makes your browsing experience faster, it also makes it more secure.

    To set it up on evo, you need to follow as below:

    Go to network settings
    Check the box that says Use DNS
    enter DNS: 8.8.8.8
    enter Alternate DNS: 8.8.4.4
    Apply the changes and close

    Salam to all forum members discuss here problems and solutions of it. I had given solution at my previous thread and that is the only solution for EvO users those are using device with out antenna port. Today I want to tell you about the problem of those peoples that have the signal strength well but not getting speed well although they are connected at EVDO mode. Actually evo connection is port in 3.1Mb slot from PTCL but you can only have the 3.1 speed only if there are users not more then 8/16/24/32 according to urban areas . Wi-Fi tower has sectorial antennas and those are directional as per strength of population . Each antenna that is directed to your side is connected down to a equipment calls BTS (Bade Transceiver System) . In BTS every antenna is connected to a hardware called TRE , one TRE has 8 slots for individual 8 users. If you are in range of a antenna that has 2 TREs it mean it can serve 16 users individually at 3.1Mb connectivity with 3.1 Mb concerning speed ,because each user is occupying 1 slot individual, now if the user increases from limit it will share with already 16 users , as the users will increases more and more speed will get down as per users browsing . Normally one antenna has 2 TREs in normal populated areas while congested city areas one antenna has 6/8 TREs but these are not sufficent for a lot of peoples because antenna signal through is vary from 5Km to 25Km as per obstacles in the way of signals . So there we are fall in need of extra BTS but it all up to PTCL . so if you have laptop you should try the coverage of any other antenna of your tower might be there is less traffic and you can occupy an individual slot .
    I hope you have got your speed problem reason .
    Friends I know all this because I have seen the equipment and installed and commissioned it my self , so such speed problem after having good signal if you face then change you location or wait until users become less at your dirctional antenna . Thanks
