    My wifi and 3G speeds are about the same and I can't download 10 mb + packages on 3G. Seems to be by design? Anyway around this?

    Have you looked at 3G Unrestrictor 5?

    Don't get me wrong, the app works fine for other apps, but not Cydia.

    I must be not understanding you. Are you saying you tried to download it using Cydia and couldn't get it? Or something else ?

    That doesn't make any sense.
    Cydia will not let you download any package over carrier data that's 10mb or higher?

    That's exactly what I'm saying. Unless it was a server issue, preferring wifi over 3G?

    I've never been able to. Sometimes my 3G will be faster and it will still prefer wifi. It will download on 3G, but a very slow pace. So slow that it times out. A few hundred kBs over several minutes. If I turn on wifi with its .70 Mbps speed packages will download fine. My 3G could be @ 2 Mbps and it wouldn't matter.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but are you trying to download over-10MB files over 3G?
    If that's the case and you have not installed any kind of restrictor before. It's pretty much because of your 3G network carrier.

    Even if my 3G speeds are better than my wifi speeds? I can download large files with safari on 3G with no issues. Huge apps too. This issue is only with cydia.

    Maybe something to do with the particular repos server or dns settings.
    I noticed before when connected on a very fast wifi connection it would take forever to update a cydia package. And once I turned off wifi and did it over LTE it would be done in seconds.
