Bliss is when the simple hack of a usb extension cable means the difference between hspa heaven and umts hell.

My Huawei e1750 3G stick was a pain, I was on the edge of the HSPA coverage area and my signal kept falling back to UMTS, which sucks since UMTS can only seem to handle a few simultaneous connections.
After a month of frustration and a lot of cussing it dawned to me to use a USB extension cord and some velcro tape to place the stick above my head so my body or laptop wouldn't block the signal anymore.
My little hack was victorious and I am enjoying a stable HSPA connection. Funny how a crappy internet connection can screw up your mood so badly.
