How to check 3G connection specific information


I was wondering if there is a way to check my 3g connection type if it is running 3G or GPRS and how to set these modes.

I am currently connecting a Slackware 14.1 system using wvdial.

If you require more information let me know.

Thank you

I can only give general advice here, as it will likely depend on your particular device, but I think including the 'AT^SYSINFO' /etc/wvdial.conf might do what you want here
Signal level can force the connectivity used, but it may be possible to set connectivity (again depending on the hardware in question).

For example
