Hi Sebastian,

After reading about how much has been done in the latest kernel, I
decided to find a quick and easy way to get 3g mobile internet. I went
to another provider, and just put the SIM in an android one (Karbonn
Sparkle V) smartphone running Android 6.0.1.

Then, I activated the hotspot, and configured the TP-link WR841nd
(atheros wifi) to act as a client (STA mode). Everything else, just
connects to the ethernet switch, including a tiny wireless AP.

I did a test before applying any QoS:

Then, I applied sqm-qos on the wireless interface acting as an STA.

Next, I proceeded to use more connections on DSLreports:
Here are the results:


I'm consistently getting A and in one instance A+. Personally, I don't
think that it's possible to get A+ consistently on a 3g link, unless
android fixes the buffering in the USB/wifi subsystem+drivers.
However, moving from B/C to A/A+ for a 3g connection is encouraging,
even if it's not significant.
