Some users over at AndroidForums.com have discovered that by manually updating to a non-consumer PRL and changing a line in the build.prop file of the Motorola Triumph they’re able to get noticeably increased 3G speeds, with one user professing he’d gone from a low of 80kbps up to a low of around 600. The PRL in question is said to come from select business account phones – this one didn’t make it to consumer phones, for some reason. Whatever the case is, someone is being a huge help in getting these updated PRLs out there and the users that have tried them are reporting great success. More information and full instructions here.
