3G Microcell and long ping times

3G Microcell and long ping times

Anyone know what I can do to shorten my ping times?  I average 350ms using the SpeedTest.net iPhone app on an iPhone 4 running 4.3.2.  Although I have a fairly good signal from my 3G Microcell, I was hoping to shorten these long ping times.

 

Also, I have U-verse 12MB DSL and have no issues with ping times from my PC.

Re: 3G Microcell and long ping times

Why do you care about ping times on 3G data connections through the Microcell from your iPhone?  Just turn on the iPhone WiFi, connect up through your U-verse WiFi service, and you're good to go.

Re: 3G Microcell and long ping times

I do use Wi-Fi but I'm troubleshooting issues with some calls that don't go through when connected to the Microcell.  I ocassionally have to attempt several calls for one to go through - again this isn't happening all the time.  Just trying to understand the issue and thought that perhaps the long ping times might be the cause.  I see some folks have ~50ms ping times from their iPhone 4 when connected to the Microcell.
